The Liquid e is the follow-up to the Liquid, except with a silly lowercase letter tacked on. The onscreen keyboard has been tweaked, the dictionary has been expanded... oh sorry, we nodded off there.
But we woke up again as the Liquid e offers Android 2.1, the latest version of Google's mobile operating system. Being an Android phone, the Liquid e includes all manner of Google goodness. The browser is Google Chrome, it syncs your stuff to the cloud with Google Sync -- and to your Acer computers with Acer Sync -- and Gmail offers push email. Google Maps and Street View are built-in.
The phone is dominated by the 89mm (3.5-inch) touchscreen, which is capacitive and zippy. The Liquid e looks like a slab of a phone, but it's actually comfortable to hold. It's all screen, which is particularly useful when you flip it into landscape orientation and fire up the YouTube player or type a message.
The processor is the same underclocked 768MHz Snapdragon chip in the Liquid, which is a shame. We always like a speed boost. A 5-megapixel camera captures snaps, and records them to microSD. There's a mini-USB port and 3.5mm headphone jack too.
