While their recent releases have been underwhelming, I do have fond memories of my original Acer Liquid, despite it's more-flexible-than-a-rubber-band construction.
The big unknown on the spec sheet is the 'MTK 6575', not a CPU i'm familiar with, but it apparently has been shipping out on all sorts of cheap Chinese devices (you know the ones I mean) already.
The ALGD (as it shall now be known) is slated for release 8th August 2012, in both black and white, via Expansys priced at only £148.99!
As the champions of low cost devices, this is a device MoDaCo will definitely keep a keen eye on!
