Acer took the wraps off its first two MWC smartphones a few days early. The Liquid E1 and Liquid Z2 run Android and target the entry-level and mid-range smartphone shopper rather than the high-end flagship seeker. The E1, for example, has a single-core 1-GHz processor paired with a 4.5-inch qHD display. It will be available in both single- and dual-SIM configurations and comes with stereo speakers and a 5-megapixel camera. The Z2 is an entry-level phone with a dual-core 1-GHz processor and a 3.5-inch HVGA display. As with the E1, the Z2 will be available with two SIM tray options. It comes with a 3-megapixel camera. The Liquid E1 will cost between €199 and €229 ($262 - $302), while the Z2 will cost between €99 and €129 ($131 - $170). These devices are slated for European markets in the coming month.
