Aside from the Acer Special Edition Ferrari Liquid, they also had on display the standard edition of course as well as a couple of other handsets that I was told would most likely hit the Indian market as well, but prices or availability was unknown.

First off is the beTouch E400 which will run on an Android 2.1 OS with a 600mHz Qualcomm processor to back it up. it's not a bad looking handset however the real put off is the unnecessary waste of space above and below the touch-sensitive keys.

The Acer Stream is a good looking, comfortable handset, The UI that has been created for this handset, that runs on top of the Android 2.1 OS, is not very complicated but doesn't really offer anything extraordinary. What does stand out in the devices feature set is the HDMI (Type D) micro connector and the Dolby Mobile audio enhancement. The prototype sounded excellent but I'll wait till I see the final piece, if it get's to my desk. The Stream is equipped with a 1GHz processor. What did come off a bit strange is that the spec sheet talked of a 5MP camera with 720p video recording? A first. So far it seems like 720p was restricted to the 8MP cameras.

The Acer P400 was also display which looks like the Windows Mobile version of the beTouch E400. There didn't seem to be a custom UI designed for the handset, yet.
