Looks like Acer isn’t about to abandon their Android smartphone business and is gearing up to release a new low-end device for the masses. The Acer Liquid Gallant Duo (duo is for dual-SIM) is an affordable Android phone designed to give customers adequate specs in return for rock bottom low pricing. $230 off-contract is all it will take for someone to get a hold of an Android smartphone running Ice Cream Sandwich. Rest of the specs are as follows:

  • CPU speed: 1GHz, MTK 6575
  • Platform: Android Ice Cream Sandwich
  • Network: HSPA/WCDMA 900/2100 MHz / Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz / (Band frequency, HSPA availability, and data speed are operator dependent)
  • Dual SIM
  • Memory: Internal phone storage: 4GB / RAM: 1GB / microSD slot (up to 32GB)
  • Display: 4.3-inch touch screen with qHD resolution
  • GPS: Internal GPS antenna
  • Sensors: Accelerometer, Digital compass, Proximity sensor, Ambient light sensor
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth® 3.0 + EDR / Wi-Fi®: IEEE 802.11b/g/n / 3.5 mm stereo audio jack / Standard micro-USB
  • Camera: 5 megapixel camera, LED flash
  • Battery: Li-ion battery 1500 mAh
  • Weight: 145 grams with battery
  • Dimensions: (LxWxT): 129 x 65,9 x 9,9 mm

I know the single-core MTK processo may not sound like much, but it was more than snappy in that counterfeit Galaxy S3 video we showed you last week. The device is currently up for pre-order from the online retailer Expansys and is looking to launch next month.
