Smartphones with 4.5-inch screens have been making headlines at the CES, pushing smartphones ever-closer into that nebulous not-quite-a-tablet gray area. Not every manufacturer thinks bigger is better, though, as Acer introduced its liquidmini with a svelte 3.2-inch display.

The liquidmini seems like it should be a low-to-mid-range Android smartphone, featuring a 3.2-inch HVGA screen, HSDPA support, and a five-megapixel rear camera. For connection to your home theater system, the smartphone is compatible with DLNA streaming when used with Acer’s clear.fi system.

In addition to the usual assortment of features like Bluetooth and GPS, there are some small extras, like the FM radio the liquidmini packs. Acer estimates the phone will last for 6.5 hours of talk time on a full charge, up to 20 hours in standby.

Acer is releasing the liquidmini in the UK this April, offering silver, blue, black, green and pink editions of the phone. This initial deployment will see the phones running Android 2.2 Froyo. No word yet on pricing, or if we’ll see it in any other markets.
