There’s absolutely no guarantee it will find a home with AT&T (or even Bell, Rogers or TELUS, for that matter), but Acer’s Liquid aka A1 has been spotted in an FCC filing complete with 850MHz and 1900MHz bands of HSDPA. Much has been made in the past about the device thanks in part to its Snapdragon processor — unfortunately underclocked to 768MHz — and in recent months rumors that would see it carried by AT&T have been on the uptick. Not speaking directly to the matter, one Acer exec went so far as to say that AT&T and T-Mobile would be foolish to not pursue a strong relationship with the Taiwanese company. As for whether or not such a thing would ever materialize is up for debate, but perhaps this is the first of many regulatory precursors needed for a full-scale smartphone invasion.
