Acer’s Liquid Mini is a lower-end Android released in the UK, a shrunk-down version of the company’s earlier Liquid. The Liquid Mini is about to receive an update, with Acer revealing the smartphone will soon be available in a new assortment of colors and running Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
The new case options for the Liquid Mini will now include cherry, lagoon, pearl and steel. All together, that makes nine shades for you to choose from; if at least one of those doesn’t suit you, we don’t know what to tell you.
The most significant part of this refresh is the new inclusion of Gingerbread; just because the Liquid Mini is running a 600MHz CPU that’s on the slower side of things and has a relatively tiny 3.2-inch screen doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to enjoy the latest Android release.
We haven’t heard exactly when Acer plans to get this new Liquid Mini out to retailers, or about its plans for Gingerbread upgrades for existing owners. Hopefully, we’ll hear more soon.
