Acer just announced that they will bring the first ever intel-based Android phone – the Liquid C1 in the Philippines. The Acer Liquid C1 will be powered by an Intel “Lexington” Atom Z2420 chip clocked at 1.2 GHz that will feature Intel’s proprietary “hyperthreading” technology.
In a post on Interaksyon – Intel Philippines outgoing Country Manager Ricky Banaag said “the launch of the Acer Liquid C1 in the Philippines is a “milestone”.. and their alignment and long collaboration with Acer in the PC space makes the launch “more exciting.””
The Liquid C1 is a 4.3″ smartphone with 400 MHz graphics engine, TFT IPS Touch capacitive display, 1GB of RAM and a 8 MP rear-camera but what separates Liquid C1 from other android phone is because of “the architecture and design of Intel’s chips, the connectivity options on Intel-based smartphones are a lot faster, enabling up to 21 Mbps of downlink streaming on quad-band technology.” the report said.
