MANILA—Taiwanese computer giant Acer recently introduced its new line of smartphones and tapped host-singer Toni Gonzaga as its brand ambassador.

The company said Gonzaga and Acer "share the same exceptional qualities, true to their promise of constant innovation, passion and sense of excellence every step of the way."

Targeted at mobile workers, Acer introduced the Liquid Jade smartphone, which it said can deliver seamless performance wherever users are -- at work or at play.

Acer Philippines general manager Manuel Wong in recent media briefing held in Pasig City said the 5-inch IPS HD screen allows convenient viewing of documents, photos and videos.

Aside from the sleek design, the company said the Liquid Jade packs a formidable punch powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor that allows snappy performance all the time so users can carry out several functions usually performed using a traditional computing device can perform on a 7.5mm ultra-thin smartphone.

And since most professionals these days do their business outside the office, the company said 21Mbps HSPA+ connectivity guarantees speedy connection to any network and allows users to browse their favorite websites and social networking sites -- thanks also to its Android 4.4 KitKat operating system.

With the 13 MP rear and 2 MP front cameras, Acer said users will have an easier time to capture clear photos.

“It has always been Acer’s mission and vision to provide our customers the best that technology can offer,” Wong said.

“So we brought the kind of technology in our smartphones that people actually need, and this is because we have remained sensitive and listened to what our customers say and feel,” he added.

Aside from the Acer Liquid Jade, other smartphone models in the Acer Liquid line include the Liquid X1, the Liquid E700, the Liquid Z500, and the Liquid Z200.
