Most high-end 2010 phones have already been discontinued and sold off at £150-200+ (Sony Ericsson X10, HTC Desire Z, Samsung Galaxy S, etc..) and manufacturers are still launching lower spec phones at over £200 so it'll be while before this sort of deal becomes the norm.

I'm thinking more new budget levels stuff from the likes of ZTE/Samsung et al.

Android is only gaining in popularity so likely more manufacturers will jump on the bandwagon as well. Like I said the next six months will be incredible. I suspect in the lead up to Xmas to see deals that would blow your mind right now.

Doubt it most have dropped the earlier phones so quickly so that they dont have to support them , i think googles new terms state 18 months worth of updates or it revokes the useage of the OS for that particular brand in order to make the OS reliable and grow , personally i think youll find less phones being produced.

Two pieces of key evidence suggest the later:

Nah it won't be much of an improvement over the OSF out of the box. Although the Snapdragon CPU could probably be unlocked to 1GHz, so then it's a horse of a different colour! Anyone know if it's possible?
If you're willing to ship abroad, a regular OSF can go upwards of £140 on eBay, and the oled version even more (They are very sought after in Ukraine, Russia, etc).

So you could end up in profit or just about even after final value fee's etc.

It's the same chip that runs at 1GHz in the HTC Desire, SE X10, etc.. so boosting it to the same speed is quite common. SnapDragon is a generation ahead of the Scorpion (7227) and more powerful for the same clock speed.

Even at the standard speed it can play 720p video... Try that on a San Francisco ;)

£40 for an android handset..... and a branded one ...... i wouldnt be surprised if you see a lot more deals concerning cheap older android phones just as a real move to get rid of old stock , i wouldnt be surprised if the price of newer handsets increased inorder to support the Android platform updates.

Could be a good thing but could also be bad.

Yeah, you only see the really hot deals on old or slow selling handsets.

Most low to mid-spec 2011 phones are little better than last year's... HTC Salsa/ChaCha, ZTE Skate, Samsung Galaxy Ace/Mini... All the same old 7227 processor. They're hoping people will upgrade based on the OS so they can maintain margins on the hardware.

I think once the deals on 2010 phones dry up it'll be a while before we see 2011 phones offering the same bang-for-buck.

Can someone confirm this is unlocked?

I'm not going to vote cold, because the price is good, but I had an Acer Liquid (not the 'e' model, mind you, but the difference is only the amount of memory on board) and I thought I should share my experience:

The proximity detector didn't work properly, meaning that the touchscreen would continue working while you were in a call so you accidentally pressed buttons.
The ear microphone needed replacing
The phone often crashed when it recieved a call.
The phone often crashed when it made a call.
It was slow and laggy.
There was only ever one software update.

Some of these problems might have been fixed by Android 2.2, but I wouldn't recommend buying a phone from Acer.

not true. my 2.3.3 sf sold for £80 and I offered cheap delivery to all countries. Used many pictures and a good description.

quite big? not sure its necessarily better than OSF

probably hot deal though


thephonedatabase is interesting, but hardly returns reasonable results, e.g compared to Blade, the Desire scores the same as Liquid, which I rather doubt

That guy is hardly an expert reviewer and not running stock software.

8/10 from Trusted Reviews: http://www.trustedreviews.com/Acer-Liquid-E_Mobile-Phone_review
7.5/10 from PhoneArena: http://www.phonearena.com/reviews/Acer-Liquid-A1-Review_id2355/page/4

The phone has been around for 18 months in various versions and has a large community around it. If you look any major forum you'll see hundreds of people having issues with HTC, Samsung and Sony Ericsson phones.

And even more with Acer.
