Acer Stream Coming To eXpansys In The UK On August 2nd; Packing Android 2.1, 1GHz Processor, 3.7” AMOLED, HDMI And More For £400

The Acer Stream is coming to the UK, and it’s coming soon. Acer’s newest and most powerful Android device to date will initially be available exclusively through eXpansys.com in the UK starting on August 2nd. £400 will get you the device, unlocked. This is your only purchase option, as no carrier subsidies have yet been announced. I will say it’s pretty robust on the spec-sheet. The Stream features:

  • A 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor
  • 3.7” WVGA AMOLED Display
  • 512MB ROM / 512MB RAM
  • 2GB Internal (Flash) Memory
  • MicroSD Card Slot
  • WiFi (presumably B/G/N), Bluetooth, and GPS
  • Mini HDMI-out
  • 3.5mm Headphone Jack
  • 720P (24FPS) Video Recording
  • 5MP Camera
  • Android 2.1 with Acer Touch 3D UI 4.0

And here is the Stream, in all its glory:

The first thing I notice about the Stream is its lack of a trackball, d-pad, or optical trackpad.

  • QWERTY keypad
  • 2.6” 320 x 240 screen
  • 416 Mhz CPU
  • 256 MB RAM
  • 512 MB Memory
  • 3.2 MP Camera
  • WiFi (likely topping out at 802.11g)
  • Android 1.6

I have no idea what Acer is shooting for with this phone.

Will Acer’s Stream Make A Splash?

While the name leaves a little to be desired, the Acer Stream was recently approved by the FCC and will soon be on its way into the hands of consumers.

With specs that closely resemble the likes of the Nexus One and the Droid Incredible, the Acer Stream (a.k.a Liquid Stream) boasts some pretty decent hardware and even better, comes with Android 2.1, although hopefully we’ll see Android 2.2 shortly after the release.
