AT and amp;T and T-Mobile Likely Candidates for Acer's Liquid Metal Smartphone

Latest word involving the much-anticipated Acer Liquid Metal device has been that AT&T and T-Mobile are considering snatching up the Android device, according to a senior Acer official at a New York City press conference.

It’s already been confirmed that Canada’s Rogers Communications has decided to sell the Liquid Metal smartphone, and is due for it’s launch sometime soon.

This would be a great addition for AT&T, likely taking the title as the most bad-ass Android smartphone on the network.

Chrome OS Notebooks due to launch late November

The time has finally come for the next generation Google Chrome OS to hit notebooks, and a couple big name PC companies are following suit. The end of this month, Google will introduce its own branded notebook manufactured by Inventec, featuring an ARM-based platform with expected initial shipments to reach up to 70,000 units. Hewlett-Packard (HP) and Acer won’t be far behind with their Chrome OS notebooks, being manufactured by Quanta Computer and expected to launch in December this year. Asus will be sitting on the sidelines observing the market for Chrome Notebooks before they take their dive. This should be an exciting holiday season for Chrome infused notebooks worldwide, and I’m sure sales will be nothing short of outstanding.
