Word of the Day: yarborough - hand of cards none of which is above nine - Ohmigod - I got me a yarborough
TAIWANESE HARDWARE MAKER Acer announced the Liquid Z2 smartphone on Wednesday, making it the latest smartphone vendor to jump the gun on Mobile World Congress (MWC).
The Acer Liquid Z2 is a typical mid-range smartphone. Although it runs a recent version of Google's mobile operating system, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, it features a low resolution 3.5in HVGA 320x480 touchscreen and a 1GHz processor, confirming the phone's positioning within the mid-range Android market.
The handset also features dual cameras with 3MP and 5MP image sensors, respectively, and Acer seems to think they are pretty good. The firm said, "The versatile 3MP or 5MP camera launches in just 1 second, offers panoramic and multi-angle modes, plus continuous shooting (up to 99 shots) to capture precious moments."
The Acer Liquid Z2 also features 4GB of internal storage expandable via microSD card, a dual SIM slot and a 1,300mAh battery. The handset will make its debut in France, Belgium, Ukraine and the Netherlands followed by Russia, Italy and the UK, but there's no word on pricing yet.
We hope to be able to get our mitts on these two Acer smartphones among others at MWC next week. µ
