Acer Social Jogger Widget and Apps Available for Download


One of the best things about the stock UIs we see preloaded on various devices we purchase, are the social netowrking applications and widget integrations. This software allows us to keep track of our favorite social environments while keeping friends and family up to date with current happenings on the fly. Almost every UI available has a stock interface of some kind (the pure google devices not included), and every vendor has a different way of going about these, some focus on design while … [Read more...]

Acer Iconia Tab A500 – $450, April 24th

It’s pretty clear that AT&T isn’t relying on the iPhone and iPad any longer: with other carriers announcing Android Honeycomb tablets left and right, AT&T finally came to the table with an offering of their own.

Rogers Acer Liquid MT hands-on


The last we heard of the Acer Liquid Metal was when it hit the FCC bearing some AT&T bands. Now, the device has turned up on Rogers in Canada as the Acer Liquid MT and we're going to go ahead and put it through its paces. A quick look at the specs tells us that it's certainly not up to par with the dual-cores of today but if anyone is looking to get started with a basic device that has a lot of features the Acer Liquid MT fits rather nicely. A spec reminder: 1500mAh Li-Ion … [Read more...]

Acer Liquid Metal Hands-on and Impressions [MWC] [VIDEO]


The Acer Liquid Metal doesn’t really do anything special software wise, but it’s the hardware that its name is derived from. The phone is constructed of mostly aluminum, but a unibody design it isn’t. Still, all of the materials come together to make a nice looking phone that anyone would want to carry around. Perhaps the most interesting thing about the Acer Liquid Metal was its LED notification system – three backlit icons on the top of the device will notify you for three different … [Read more...]

Acer Iconia Smart Runs 2.3 On Huge 4.8-inch Screen


Double take. That’s exactly what I did when I saw the Acer Iconia Smart. The screen size alone didn’t get me, after all it seems we’ve got 10-inch tablets in bulk, but the shape of the Acer Iconia Smart caught my eye and I was immediately intrigued: I like the concept of the 4.8-inch screen. If you take your typical 4-inch or 4.3-inch smartphone and scale it evenly, you would likely have a fatty phone that looked pretty awkward in your skinny jeans. By keeping the width of the screen … [Read more...]
