Acer's looking to get the Mobile World Congress 2010 party booming by supplying attendees with a Liquid E hit. It has three other smartphones running the Android operating system up its sleeve as well: a mysterious Ferrari handset, the BeTouch E110, and the BeTouch E400.

Sharing the same name as a date-rape drug, rather alarmingly, the Liquid E is the successor to last year's surprisingly good, but not very glamorous, Liquid. The Liquid E looks very similar to its predecessor in terms of specs, sporting a capacitive, 89mm (3.5-inch) touch screen, a Snapdragon processor running at 768MHz (rather than its full 1GHz potential), and a 5-megapixel camera.

The Acer Ferrari will run Android 2.1 as well, and it'll have the usual HSDPA, Wi-Fi, a touch screen, and more. As for the two BeTouch phones, the E400 is the Android 2.1 model, while the E110 is the more affordable sibling with Android 1.5 instead.
