Acer prepares budget Liquid Z3 for mid-August European launch
Acer has launched the latest budget device in its <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/291165==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/04/24/retains.most.of.design.from.predecessor.liquid.e1/" rel='nofollow'>Liquid smartphone line</a>. The low-cost Liquid Z3 provides a 3.5-inch touchscreen display, though it is thought not to be a high-resolution panel, along with a dual-core 1GHz processor from an unnamed manufacturer, and 4GB of storage packed into a relatively lightweight 120-gram (4.2-ounce) case.<br />
<br />
Other standard smartphone features make an appearance, such as Wi-Fi, GPS, and a 3-megapixel rear camera, but unusually it offers dual SIM card slots and will be supplied with Android 4.2 onboard, according <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/291166==http://www.phonearena.com/news/Acer-Liquid-Z3-is-official--cheap-Android-in-a-small-package_id46063" rel='nofollow'>to</a> <em>PhoneArena</em>. The Liquid Z3 is supplied with support for the company's AcerCloud cross-platform online storage service. It will also come with a number of predefined user profiles offering various home screen layouts, with "Basic Mode" offering simple call and text functions, a voice-centric "Keypad Mode," a "Senior Mode" with the weather, clock, quick contacts, and a magnify function; and a more-standard "Classic Mode" providing a more typical layout.<br />
<br />
The Liquid Z3 will be made available in a number of countries in Europe, as well as Russia, for 99 euros ($131) by mid-August. It is unknown if it will go on sale in the United States in the future.
