Fido releases first Android: Acer Liquid E

Fido has released another smartphone and their first Android-powered device, the Acer Liquid e. This can be yours for $30 on a 3-year contract or $375 no contract.

From now on you can expect more smartphones (and more Android devices) to trickle down from Rogers lineup to Fido. The reason is more handset competition from the mid-level carriers and that customers are demanding devices that can do more than talk and text. Bell’s Virgin Mobile started to bring on smartphones when they hopped on to HSPA back on February 2nd. TELUS’ Koodo Mobile has also started to release smartphones over the past few months. The entry level devices will be left for Solo Mobile and Chatr.

As for the specs of the Fido Liquid e:  comes with a 3.5-inch display, 768MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 5 megapixel camera with video capabilities, WiFi, full HTML browser, GPS, Bluetooth, 3.5mm headset jack, holds up to 32GB. Overall dimensions are 116×54×12.75mm with a weight of 135 grams.
