Acer has announced another low cost smartphone during the massive trade show IFA 2014 organized in Berlin. Named as Liquid Z500, the handset mainly targets music loving youths who like to listen to music on the go and would love to purchase an affordable cheap smartphone. The device sports dual front-speakers, and based on manufacturer’s promises, the listener can reach the CD quality audio from the “powerful and advanced” front speaker system that the Acer Liquid Z500 is equipped with. Along with the smartphone, Acer has also revealed two new Android tablets – the Iconia One 8 and Iconia Tab 10. Let’s take a look at all the three devices what they have to offer.
