Acer's Liquid Glow smartphone has NFC, a 3.7-inch display, and will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

Acer has taken the wraps off of their upcoming Liquid Glow Android smartphone. The device is due to be officially unveiled and shown off at Mobile World Congress next week in Barcelona.

The Liquid Glow has a 3.7-inch display, 5-megapixel rear camera, and packs NFC. Details on the processor, screen type, radios, and other specs are unfortunately pretty much non-existent right now, but a dual-core processor is likely in the cards.

The Liquid Glow is Acer's first Android 4.0 smartphone and the company's first smartphone which actually looks good. From the looks of it, the design of the Liquid Glow is a cross between the T-Mobile Galaxy S II and the original Palm Pre. Sexy, but totally pocket-able.

All said and done, Acer may actually have a major hit on its hands with the Liquid Glow. I'm not sure any of their previous devices have sold well, besides the Acer Liquid A1 which launched way back in 2009. Acer has been trying desperately to succeed in mobile for a while now, and the Liquid Glow might be their best chance yet.

I'm sure we'll find out more about the Liquid Glow next week at MWC. We'll be their live and will make sure to get some photos of the Liquid Glow when it gets revealed.

The Acer Liquid Glow will be available in early summer 2012.
