Acer Liquid Metal Handset running in Android Froyo dated!

An Acer UK spokesperson confirmed to us that the handset, which features a metal backplate, will run Android 2.2 Froyo, and will be on sale at the end of October.

The Acer Liquid Metal is nothing but a rumour posted by a blogger right now, but the accompanying renders look awfully authentic to us. So with a pinch of salt in hand, we’re excited to see the new look design, which appears to combine the odd curves of the original Acer Liquid with a slick metal backplate.

Internally, the Acer Liquid Metal is alleged to pack an 800MHz chip, 512MB of RAM, and a 3.6-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen, with Dolby Mobile and Bluetooth 3.0, the latter of which has only recently begun to be adopted by the mobile industry. It would supposedly run Android 2.2 “Froyo” as well, though hopefully without the atrocious and confusing software skin Acer draped over the Acer Stream recently.

Samsung I5510 Spotted At IFA

According to some of the bloggers,  the I5510 smartphone was spotted showcased by Samsung at the IFA 2010. The Samsung I5510 appeared on the Vodafone booth touting Android 2.2 Froyo with TouchWiz 3.0 on top of it and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. The device is expected to cost around 200 Euros at the time of its launch. From the pictures of the device, it looks like a mid-end Android handset and will be a worthy addition to the Galaxy line-up of Android devices from Samsung.

As of now no more details about the handset is available. Launch dates for the I5510 are not known at the moment although it looks finished which means we can expect it relatively soon. At the time of its launch the Samsung I5510 will be available exclusively on the Vodafone network.

Orange HTC Desire owner expecting update to Android 2.2

HTC Desire owners have been holding their breath and waiting anxiously for the upgrade to the latest version of Android, ‘Froyo’. However, if you are on the Orange mobile network then you will unfort

unately be sorely disappointed today, as news emerges that the over-the-air update has been delayed until mid-September.

Android fans there has been a delay in receiving the 2.2 Froyo update from HTC, & we now expect it to be available mid-Sep. Apologies–commented by one of the usersCanor Maples.

The official HTC Desire Android ‘Froyo’ update came from HTC at the beginning of August, but many of the networks have opted to delay the release to its customers until they have fully tested the stability of Android 2.2, though they deny they are adding their own little ‘frills’ to the update.

This is not the first time that Orange customers have been disappointed with an Android update, with HTC Hero owners tied to Orange had to wait a month for their update to 2.1. Clearly the guys at Orange with the responsibility of rolling out the network are just a tad pedantic or perhaps they’ve found issues and are now trying to fix them.

So please don’t shoot the messenger Orange customers, but I’m afraid the news today isn’t exactly happy for you. Be patient, sit tight and keep reading our commentaries of Android 2.2 ‘Froyo’ in anticipation.
