Acer revs up Ferrari smartphone

Vroom vroom

Application security programs and practises

First laptops, now smartphones. Acer is applying the Ferrari touch once again, this time for a makeover of the Liquid E Smartphone.

Aside from the Ferrarified exterior, what else is different? There's a Bluetooth headset that cancels echo and automatically regulates volume levels and, umm, and...several Ferrari ringtones, images and videos.

Acer Ferrari Liquid E Smartphone

Top gear?

OK, we are not racing fans, but plenty are. And the Acer Liquid E Ferrari Special Edition is undoubtedly a fully featured tphone, which will undoubtedly retail at a fully featured price (the RRP for the non-Ferrari version is £349).

As with the Liquid E, the E Ferrari runs Android OS 2.1, comes with a 3.5in Hi-res touchscreen, has a 5Mp camera and runs a Snapdragon processor at 768MHz.

With no pricing available yet, we wonder how much more Acer can charge for a bluetooth headset, a few carbon fibre logos and a paint job.

The phone goes on sale in July. No network deals announced yet.
