Same here, but I wonder if it is a wolf in sheeps clothing, don't know what hacks are available for it with any customised roms.

Seems to be lots of support for custom roms, no idea what they are like though - http://android.modaco.com/topic/340767-all-custom-rom-collection-for-acer-liquid-e-2962011/

This is the correct link - http://android.modaco.com/forum/502-acer-liquid-metal-liquidmetalmodacocom/

The ones I posted might be for a different acer liquid, only just realised there might be more than one, sorry for any confusion.

What kind of hacks are you talking about? Don't much about much on the subject, cheers.

lovely phone and comes with leather slip case.
I have had htc sensation and iPhone, and honestly this is just as beautiful in it's own way
a real bargain for a premium 800x480 smartphone
go for it, you won't be disappointed

What's the comparison between this and the Orange Monte Carlo like?

I really don't know very much about the subject, I'm a desire HD and a500 tablet owner, both are unrooted and on the stock roms.

As far as I know, from what I've read people root their phones and install custom roms to add enhanced functionality (from basic things like screen capture to replacing boot logos and overclocking the cpu for faster performance etc) to complete overhauls of the UI, alot of phones have different UI's installed over the vanilla android rom like HTC sense, some people dont like the ones provided and in those cases the custom roms provide a far greater choice. If a phone has a decent community chances are it will continue to evolve long after support has been discontinued by the oem. Which is sort of comforting ;)

yes it does
Power the Liquid Metal on and you are greeted with Acer’s custom UI sitting on Android 2.2, Froyo. We’re not so bothered about Gingerbread at this point in time because the majority of useful functionality is within Froyo, such as Adobe Flash support in the browser.

it's faster and more compact, but I am not sure it's an upgrade worth doing, in the same way, I also wouldn't upgrade to the HTC Desire S.

you are trading a premium phone from one generation for a mid range phone from the next.
if you don't mind size I would say the best upgrade you can do is to the HTC Sensation.

Well took the plunge and bought this phone through TCB, so should get it a little cheaper...

I have had a good search on the web and I can't find an easy step by step guide to get gingerbread onto this phone... any tech savvy folk out there that could help? I have a San Fran which is running a custom rom so sort of know my way around with a bit of guidance! :{

Thanks in advance... heat for the OP too, btw think this deal might end at 2pm so get your order in!!

Acer has a 2nd-generation Snapdragon processor where the Orange is a old non-Snapdragon chip that doesn't support Flash, iPlayer etc... Graphics are 2-3 times faster as well.

It's the same chip as the T-Mobile G2 here:

This is the forum for the Liquid Metal: http://android.modaco.com/forum/502-acer-liquid-metal-liquidmetalmodacocom/

It has a different processor so hacks and ROMs for the older Liquid won't work.
