LAS VEGAS--If you find the traditional black and silver handsets to be boring, then you might want to check out the newly introduced Acer Liquid Mini line of Android phones.

Available in five different colors--royal blue, lime green, light pink, and yes, piano black, and jet silver--the Liquid Mini focuses on style, with chrome edges, a curved body, and soft-touch finish. It features a 3.2-inch, 480x320 multitouch screen and Acer's customized user interface, which sits on top of Android 2.2.

The Liquid Mini isn't just about looks, though. The smartphone also has a 5-megapixel camera with DLNA support, full wireless options, and a 600MHz Qualcomm processor. Preloaded apps include Documents to Go, RoadSync, and Acer's own SocialJogger app, which integrates your Facebook and Twitter accounts into one feed.

The Acer Liquid Mini is expected to be available in the U.K. in April but pricing has not been released at this time. Acer told us that the handset won't be immediately available in the U.S.
