FCC files show Acer Liquid A1 coming to AT&T?
Acer's first smartphone powered by the Android operating system, the Liquid A1, has recently gone through testing at the FCC, with the documents revealing that it will support AT&T's 850/1,900MHz 3G network. Despite this, there is still no official indication from either from AT&T or Acer about when the Liquid A1 is expected to ship for North American consumption. The FCC filing also reveals the phone will carry the S100 designation as part of its full name.
When the phone does arrive, it will get Qualcomm's 8250 CPU downclocked to 768MHz, as opposed to 1GHz in other handsets. There is also a 3.5-inch touchscreen with 800x480 resolution and an integrated GPS sensor, along with Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi. Users will be able to capture photos thanks to a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus. A standard 3.5mm headset jack allows users to connect their own headphones or headsets.
Pricing remains unknown, though if consistent with other areas is expected to be close to $500 unsubsidized. [via UnwiredView]
