Acer Aims Midrange With Liquid E3 and Z4
The Buzz: Acer's Mobile World Congress smartphone lineup this year redeems the Taiwanese company's handset reputation after last year's release in Barcelona that was met by critics with yawns. Acer debuted two midrange smartphones -- the Liquid E3 ($236) and Liquid Z4 ($136). Both have sleek designs, attention to detail and an affordable price.
The Specs: The higher-end Liquid E3's features include a 4.7-inch 720p display, quad-core 1.2GHz MediaTek processor running the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS, and 13-megapixel camera. Acer says it will ship the Liquid E3 in Europe by April with broader distribution after that.
