Currently, Intel, while dominating the PC CPU market, is not a big player in the smartphone market and the chip maker is now trying to increase its presence in that market. The latest effort is Acer‘s Liquid C1 mid-range smartphone powered by an 1.2Ghz Atom Z2420, codenamed Lexington, chip. The phone comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.
Acer’s Liquid C1 features a 4.3-inch 960×540 IPS display and a 8 Megapixel auto focus camera. While the Intel chip inside has just single core, the handset is capable of 1080p video playback. You can expect Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS connectivity and a microSD card slot. Acer will launch the phone in South-east Asia countries. It works on HSPA+ mobile networks.
