Poor old Acer. It seems to be constantly trying, yet never quite attaining (just like our school report card used to say).
The main point that links its various Android handsets together is the fact that none of them has managed to set the world alight. But, in true Alexandra Burke fashion, it's having another go.
The Acer Liquid Glow will be the latest attempt to win some meaningful market share, and it's due to be unveiled for all and sundry to see at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week.
In terms of the key specs, the Liquid Glow is equipped with a Qualcomm 7227A 1GHz processor, a 4.3in WVGA display, 1GB memory/512MB RAM and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.
As you can see, it's not quite on the bleeding edge of innovation - further proof comes in the fact that the camera is only a 5MP affair - though you are at least future-proofed to some extent thanks to the presence of ICS and the fact that the Liquid Glow features NFC support.
Perhaps one of the more interesting things about this handset is the fact that it'll come in a number of intriguingly described colours: Sakura Pink, Alpine White and Cat's-Eye Black. Yes, to get straight to the point, that is indeed just pink, white and black.
We're told you'll be able to get your hands on the Liquid Glow from the summer onwards. And if those specs are looking a little dated now...
