As announced at CES, Intel and Acer have officially revealed the third commercially available smartphone with Atom Z2420 (Lexington platform) processor in South-East Asia. Dubbed as Acer Liquid C1, the smartphone will first make its way to Thailand, followed by other markets in the region.
The Acer Liquid C1 also takes the tally of Intel-powered smartphones available globally to nine. Intel seems to be making some progress on the smartphone front, albeit slowly. The first Intel-powered smartphone XOLO X900 was launched in India last year in April by Lava.
The latest Acer smartphone Liquid C1 features a 4.3-inch display, 2000mAh battery, 8MP rear camera, Atom Z2420 processor, Android 4.0 and HSPA+ connectivity.
The phone will be initially sold at the Mobile Expo in Thailand from 7 to 11 February under a special promotion and will later reach the retail stores for $ 335.
