Acer shows off Liquid Jade Primo’s Continuum action in new promo video

Windows 10 Mobile has been available on new smartphones for months now, but it still feels too early to say what, if any impact the new software release will have on the struggling platform. One thing we can say, though, is that its arrival has brought the third-party OEMs out of the woodwork, and the Windows-based smartphone landscape we’ve been seeing at shows like MWC and CES has been anything but a Lumia-dominated spectacle. One of the first of these models to catch our eye was the Acer Liquid Jade Primo – which just saw the launch of an Android-running cousin at MWC – and now Acer’s doing its best to hype the phone’s arrival with a new promo video.

As one of the many new Windows 10 Mobile models to support Continuum, it’s little surprise that Acer is putting an emphasis on the Liquid Jade Primo’s ability to connect to PC hardware and boost user productivity in the process.

While Continuum won’t do multi-tasking in the way most of us PC users are accustomed to, juggling floating windows or giving us a split-screen view, the ability to quickly jump between apps is very much the focus of this spot. To Acer’s credit, it’s making sure not to mislead anyone, clarifying that we’re talking about “separate apps on separate screens.”

We’re still keeping our eyes out for the start of Liquid Jade Primo sales. We’ve heard a February date mentioned before, but so far haven’t seen the phone hit retail. We don’t know if we’re just looking in the wrong places, or if things might have hit a delay, but with the way Acer’s promoting the handset now, it’s likely to arrive soon.
