Acer's Liquid Express is now shipping, and if there's anything memorable about the phone, it's that it might finally help NFC spread to the mid-range Android market. The 3.5-inch Express is the same size as most of the Liquid line, includes the same 5-megapixel camera, and has the 800MHz processor of the Liquid MT. There's no word yet on internal memory, but it comes bundled with a standard 2GB microSD card. It's also free with even the cheapest two-year contracts on both T-Mobile and Orange. That means the Liquid Express is a cheap way to join the NFC future, although you'll be doing it on a phone with specs that will rapidly be from the past.
