I have to admit: I’d totally forgotten all about Acer, as it’s been several months since we’ve mentioned them on our hallowed pages.
But the Taiwanese manufacturer is very much alive and kicking, and over in New York this week it’s been talking about its Acer Liquid Jade flagship smartphone, alongside the Liquid Leap – its first foray into wearable tech.
Uhm, there’s not a great deal to go on at the moment, as this week’s press conference was more of a pre-launch type affair.
All we know about Acer Liquid Jade specs for now is that it’ll have a 5in display (or thereabouts) with Gorilla Glass, some flavour of Android (KitKat, presumably), and “no flat surfaces”. Photo nicked from CNET, incidentally.
As for the Acer Liquid Leap, it’s somewhat of a smartwatch/fitness band hybrid, offering text and call notifications. It’s 17mm thick, and comes in both red and black.
And, uhm, that’s all we know for now. There's no specific word on price, launch dates or availability for the Acer Liquid Jade or the Liquid Leap at this stage, but we’ll likely hear more at the Computex 2014 trade show in Taipei, which takes place from June 3 to June 7.
