    Acer has launched a new Android smartphone called the Iconia Smart, at the MWC event in Barcelona, showcasing version 2.3 of Google’s platform running on a larger than life display.

    The Iconia Smart is noteworthy for its 4.8 inch screen which puts the 4.3 inch unit of the HTC Desire HD to shame. This size may be a little too much for most to handle, putting it in contention to take on the five inch pseudo-tablet design of the Dell Streak.

    The Acer Iconia Smart has an HDMI output as well as built-in DLNA compatibility to make media sharing in a well-connected home relatively simple.

    An eight megapixel digital camera, presumably with HD video capture, is featured on the rear of the device, while a front-mounted two megapixel snapper is also present for video calling.

    With a 4.8 inch display, the Acer Iconia Smart will not be easy on the wallet when it arrives in the UK, although, so far, the firm has kept quiet about any pricing or launch date plans.

    With the ever-increasing number of Android 2.3 handsets on the horizon, the Iconia Smart will need to work hard to win an audience.

    Acer Liquid Mini

    Acer is continuing its fight for recognition in the smartphone market with the launch of the Liquid Mini, a handset based on Android and possessing of a relatively dinky size which aims at winning it more of the mid range market share.

    The Acer Liquid Mini has a 3.2 inch touchscreen display which looks tiny when compared to the four inch behemoths at the more expensive end of the market. Android 2.2 runs onboard along with Acer’s tweaked user interface.

    Acer has made sure that the Liquid Mini looks similar to its larger sibling, so the convex curves on the top and bottom are chromed to add a premium feel and the whole thing seems to be put together with a lot of care.

    Wi-Fi, 3G and GPS connectivity all make an appearance, while you will also be able to share media with compatible televisions and computers thanks to its DNLA certification, although this is a feature which mainstream users may never use.

    With some healthy specs and a potentially affordable final price, the Acer Liquid Mini will be one to watch when it touches down at stores in the UK this April.
