Acer has repainted its Liquid Mini smartphone with four new colours for the summer.
The four colours are cherry, lagoon, pearl and steel, which apparently “evoke summer, vacation and the longing for relax and have fun with friends (sic)”.
We’re not quite sure how steel is reminiscent of lounging on a sunny summer beach, unless there’s a naval base nearby and a battleship happens to be looming on the horizon.
There’s more to the freshly daubed compact handsets than outer apperances suggest, however, as the new Liquid Mini comes with Gingerbread, plus the new Acer 4.2 UI on top.
The latter boasts widgets on the home screen, a revamped virtual keyboard and the ability to press the Home key to flick swiftly between apps.
Acer’s SocialJogger 2.0 app now has support for Flickr and Plurk on top of Facebook and Twitter.
The Liquid Mini boasts a 3.2 inch display, 600MHz processor, 5 megapixel camera, GPS, wi-fi and 3G.
