Acer presents the Glow, an affordable smartphone running Android 4.0. A brand manager talks about a sale price set at 240 euros … without subscription. While the mobile is equipped with a processor running at 1 GHz, we find that the reactivity is still to go.
This year, Acer had no stand on the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. We still could see the entire range (tablet and mobile) in the presence of Wahid Razali, product manager of the branch smartphone.
The Acer Liquid Glow is powered by a Qualcomm MSM8255 single-core processor running at 1 GHz, it comes with a RAM of 512 MB The screen resolution is 3.7 inches (480 x 800). Memory storage is limited to 1GB, but it remains an expandable via micro SD slot present on the wafer.
Acer also states that the Liquid Glow will feature a 5 megapixel camera. At first glance, the technical specifications (memory, processor, screen) which we plan a few years back (Liquid Acer A100) are not likely to reassure.
However, we can confirm ECI Cream Sandwich is a perfect example of reactive on this platform. This observation reminds us that the frequency of a processor is not everything, Snapdragon architecture has evolved since the first series.
