Taiwan-based device maker Acer has announced its second NFC-enabled smartphone, the Liquid Glow, which will run Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich.
The mid-range smartphone follows the release by Acer of the Android-based Liquid Express, in November in the United Kingdom. Acer said at the time that all of its forthcoming Android smartphones would support NFC, and so far the company is making good on that pledge.
Acer said it would release the new phone, the Liquid Glow, in early summer. With the latest version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, the smartphone will be able to support Android Beam, Google’s enhanced peer-to-peer sharing feature for Android, using NFC.
