Acer might not be doing so well in the smartphone category, but the Taiwanese is optimistic about its future. The makers behind the Acer Iconia B1 tablet are reportedly prepping to launch two new handsets this month.
One of them i.e. Acer Liquid E1 will likely to be launched in Taiwan. The christened handset was shown earlier this year at MWC 2013. Even U.K -based retailer Expansys has listed the device for 174.99 GBP (Rs. 14,440). The Android powered handset is expected to roll out in the following countries: France, Italy, Belgium, Russia, Ukraine and Netherlands
As per buzz, Acer is also planning to launch the Liquid Z2, a dual SIM Android handset with 3.5-inch display, later this month. As of now, Acer hasn't come out in open to announce the two cherished handsets in India. GizBot will update you on this in the coming days.

Acer Liquid Z2- Specifications and features
Another handset that is ready to enthrall consumers is the Acer Liquid Z2. The device is rather low on specifications side. The Acer Liquid Z2 comes with a 3.5-inch display with a resolution of 320 X 480 pixels, 1GHz single core processor, 512MB of RAM, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, 3G, Wi-Fi, FM Radio, a 5-mega pixels shooter on the back , and 1,300mAh battery fitted inside.

Acer is not the crème smartphone vendor out there in the market. But the above mentioned handsets could do wonders. If Acer priced these Android jewels right then surely the Taiwanese giant has a chance to succeed in the near future.
