Acer, Dell, and Asus are all computer manufacturers that have tried their hand at building a smartphone. Asus worked with Garmin to create the sub-par (and too-late released) Nuvifone, while Dell's 3i has yet to leave China (and doesn't sound very impressive, spec-wise). Acer is the only one of the three that seems to really be taking their smartphone offerings seriously. The A1 Liquid is set to be one of the most powerful smartphones in the world, and it looks like it's going to have one hell of a gorgeous UI.

HDBlog.it (via Giz) has a whole gallery of pics. Acer has put in a single homescreen toggle that allows you to switch your WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, and other functions on-or-off. They've also put in an alt-tab-like task manager, as well as a brand new dialer. It's clear that Acer isn't just throwing together an Android smartphone to take advantage of the craze. They've put some dedication into this machine.
The hardware is equally impressive. The A1 Liquid has a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, clocked to 768 MHz, a WVGA capacitive touchscreen, a 5 MP camera, 256 MB of RAM, WiFi, and a 1350 mAH battery. Oh, and there's a 3.5mm headphone jack on it as well. All in all, the A1 is shaping up to be one badass smartphone offering. With any luck, carrier and cost info will be out in the near future.
