Acer Liquid E future updates

Hey Fido/Rogers people, it's great that you provided the Android 2.2 update for the Liquid E within a reasonable time frame.

 

Is there going to be an update to Gingerbread (2.3) eventually?

Based on the talk on the net, there doesn't seem to be any word of an official Gingerbread release from Acer for the Liquid E, but that's not a guarantee that it won't be available.

Wow looks like someone has actually made a Gingerbread ROM for the Liquid:

Not sure if I'm brave enough to try it though.

Yeah, I've seen a few actually. If you do decide to try one out, I suggest you read all the comments before installing because sometimes some funtionalities don't work in ROMs. 

 

Also, an interesting tidbit of information. I read that Gingerbread 2.3 is reserved for the Nexus S and that 2.4 will also be Gingerbread.

Funny you should mention that.  I was just reading earlier about how Google is not calling anything 2.4 so far:

I don't think there have been any official announcements that other devices won't get Gingerbread,  it just happens that the Nexus S is the dev phone so it was the first to get it.

Re: Acer Liquid E future updates

   

   I have examined Acer, and think it is a fabulous phone, so easy to rea  

  However although I would love to own it, I am told I have to wait 18months as I have had an update!

  Unfortunately, my update was has been dropped, and broken, and I am using an old phone!

  As a 79 year old senior, with poor eyesight, the Acer would be perfect - so clear and concise!

  Is there anything I can do about this?  Thanks!

Re: Acer Liquid E future updates

Hello AAnana,

 

As a Fido customer, you can use your FidoDollars to buy a new handset. The FidoDollars would be applied towards the after-taxes full price of the Acer Liquid E ($375.00).

 

Let me know if you need more details or have other questions.
