Powered by a 1 GHz dual-core processor and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the Liquid Z3 features a 3.5" display with a resolution of only 480 x 320 pixels, 512 MB of memory, 4 GB of internal storage and a 3 MP rear camera. With a weight of only 120 g, it measures just 109 x 60 x 10.4 mm. Additional features include a GPS module, Wi-Fi and the ability to connect to 21 Mbit/s HSPA+ networks.
The four pre-loaded user profiles that make this smartphone really user friendly are called Basic, Senior, Classic and Keypad. The Basic one, for example, is aimed at youngsters, offering call and text functions. The Senior mode allows access to messages, radio, weather, clock, magnifier and the quick call function, making it much easier to use by the elders than a fully-featured smartphone.
Available in Rock Black and Classic White, the Acer Liquid Z3 will hit Belgium, Netherlands, Ukraine, France, Spain, UK, Italy, Germany and Russia by the end of August. Priced at about $132 on these markets, the Liquid Z3 may arrive to the United States later this autumn, but we have no official confirmation yet. It would be a pity not to see it crossing the Atlantic, since it would be an interesting alternative to those who can't decide between the Sony Xperia E, Samsung Galaxy Fame and the HTC Desire 200!
