I was in PB Tech on Saturday and saw they had several boxed Acer Liquid android phones on sale. They are all the black model. They look VERY nice. Didn't realise my leg was reflected so clearly.....
I had one of these (white model) for a couple of months before I bought my Nexus One. They have 768MHz snapdragon processor. They can be overclocked to 920MHz and be stable, though it appears to depend on the phone. Some were fine and would work on 1GHz and others reported 920MHz was last stop on the line for a usable phone. Still others said anything over 768MHz wasn't reliable. So experience appears to vary.
I tried 1Ghz and it would boot - usually - then crash within 60 seconds. I didn't bother with 920MHz as the 768MHz stock speed was more than adequate.
Screen resolution is 480x800. The only limitation that was annoying was the relatively limited internal storage. It has about 195MB, but about 30Mb of that is taken up with apps you can't delete...so the phone can be tight on space. I solved that problem by using the Liquid Community ROM (LCR) which was an Android v2.1 leak from Acer, rooted, that was hacked to support Apps2sd on a partitioned sdcard. It worked *really* well and was my everyday ROM on the phone.
It has a 5MP camera.
The phone is flashed using an Acer Download Tool. It can be restored to stock factory load simply by using the Acer tool to install a stock ROM on the phone. Each ROM includes all relevant firmware support including radio. It's virtually impossible to brick this phone.
"malez" at modaco.com has made a great custom recovery for it, merging the best of Cyanogen and Amon_RA's recoveries as well as some new stuff of his own.
This is a hackers phone with loads of power at a good price. Good Value. I'm not selling these phones. I just really like this one and it hasn't got much attention in NZ.
It's a Vodafone / 2Degrees phone. Quad-band GSM with UMTS 900/2100 3G.
IIRC the price is $783.nn incl GST. You might get it cheaper elsewhere, but any warranty will be much harder to follow up.
