PRESS RELEASE

  • Your gateway to the world of Smartphones with Quick Mode Profiles
  • Affordable dual-core performance with dual SIM
  • Cool design with protective flip cover and trendy colours

Bioggio (Switzerland), August 1, 2013 - Following the success of the Liquid E1, E2, S1 and Z2, Acer today unveiled the Liquid Z3 smartphone for anyone who wants a smartphone that packs the features they need without the extra size they don't. This is the latest addition to the lineup and the fifth smartphone Acer launched since the beginning of the year, further strengthening the company commitment to the smartphone market.

The Liquid Z3 features four pre-defined user profiles and a fast dual-core 1 GHz processor offering budget-cautious smartphone upgraders and first-time users between 7 - 70 years of age a fluid experience. 

"While much of the industry is trending toward larger and more complex devices, we believe there's also a whole lot of room for thinking small and simple," said Allen Burnes, vice-president, smartphone division, Acer Europe. "Liquid Z3 bridges the gap for a new generation of smartphone users, providing they really can have it all without sacrificing the size and simplicity they want."

Less is more

In a small design powered by Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, Liquid Z3 gives you many features per square centimeter at just 109 x 60 x 10.4mm and only 120 grams. The Liquid Z3 touts a dual-core 1 GHz processor, a vivid 3.5-inch display, 4 gigabytes (GB) of internal user storage, Wi-Fi¹, integrated GPS, and a 3-megapixel camera. The optional dual[1] SIM card slot gives users all the convenience of having two mobiles in one and easily manage personal and business communications combined with an HSPA+ (up to 21 Mbps) data connection that lets favorite apps react quickly and flow smoothly, while web pages and streaming media load very quickly.

Custom profiles 4 you

The Liquid Z3 features four different Quick Mode profiles targeted at different user and age groups.

  • Basic Mode: For youngsters with call and text functions;
  • Senior Mode: Messages, radio, weather, magnify, clock, quick call contacts;
  • Classic mode: All main functions in a simple and organized layout for first time smartphone users;
  • Keypad mode: For people who primarily use voice and need their keypad right away.

Easy to Share Files and Media

Acer smartphones also support AcerCloud, a file sharing and media management solution that lets users easily retrieve, enjoy and share their multimedia and data files using a variety of computing devices. AcerCloud simplifies management of digital assets across mobile devices, regardless of platform, and is free on new Acer products.
