According to a statement in a New York press conference, Acer says that AT&T and T-Mobile are evaluating their Liquid Metal handset, running Android 2.2, and spec’d very similar to T-Mobile’s G2 — minus the keyboard.

Rogers Communications of Canada has already chosen to carry the Liquid Metal, but there are no firm commitments from any U.S. carriers — yet.

The Liquid Metal is a GSM phone, running on an 800 MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, sports a 3.6-inch, WVGA (800×480) screen, 5 megapixel camera, stainless steel battery cover, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi b/g/n, DLNA/UPnP support (for linking to PCs, TVs, and game consoles), and Dolby Surround Sound. Regretably, Acer opted to cook their own user interface, called the Breeze UI, rather than going with the stock Android interface.

Additional comments at the press conference indicated that Acer has long-term plans to ultimately have all their smartphones include a new tiled UI to function as an “abstraction layer across mobile gadgets” regardless of their OS.
