Acer pushes out new smartphones for Q3, targeting high to low end

Michael Kan | June 2, 2014
Taiwanese PC maker Acer has made another big push into the smartphone market, and unveiled four new models under its "Liquid" brand that will arrive in the third quarter.

Acer made no mention of what markets the company is targeting, but in the past it released phones to countries in Europe and Asia. With the PC market continuing to shrink, the company is expanding in mobile devices, and earlier this year unveiled its first wearable product, called the Liquid Leap, which will also arrive in the third quarter.

The company has yet to become a major smartphone player. But it is hoping the devices will help drive adoption of its consumer cloud services, called "Build Your Own Cloud." These services will let users automatically synchronize files and multimedia between different products, including PCs, smartphones and tablets.

The PC maker is expected to show off the new phones at the Computex trade show in Taipei next week.
