Acer and Scuderia Ferrari have been successful partners for quite some time now, with Ferrari branded, Acer laptops being the most prominent product to come from the relationship. The latest addition to the Acer Ferrari product line is significantly more pocket friendly than any of its predecessors - it is an Android smartphone.
The Acer liquidimini Ferrari Edition droid is aimed at all the Ferrari fans out there, who cannot afford the Vertu made handsets, which are also endorsed by the Italian car maker. The smartphone is essentially a Ferrari themed, Acer Liquid mini E310.
The droid is powered by a 600MHz CPU, and comes with 512MB of RAM on board. The device has 512MB of built-in memory, which is expandable through a microSD card (8GB is included in the retail package). The screen is 3.2" LCD unit with HVGA resolution and multitouch support. A 5MP camera will help you capture your racing moments with video recording available at the lowly 480p. All this entry level Android goodness will come in a Ferrari red body, which weighs only 105 grams. Another important addition to the droid's retail package will be the exclusive Bluetooth headset.
The Acer liquidmini Ferrari Edition will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread with UI, which has been Ferrari themed as well. Logically, the pre-installed sounds of the droid will include Ferrari engine sounds too.
There is currently no information on price or availability of the droid, but don't expect the former to completely match its internals. We can't help but be a bit puzzled by the hardware selection for a Ferrari branded Acer device. Its budget oriented background appears to be somehow out of sync with the philosophy of the Italian maker of exotic cars, don't you think?
