Canada didn't win that hockey game last night, but they have beaten the U.S. to getting the Acer Liquid e smartphone, set to arrive in North America with Canadian provider Rogers this spring. It's not really a consolation prize, but it looks like a decent smartphone.

Acer's upcoming handheld will be first Android 2.1-powered smartphone in the land of our neighbors to the north, and the first Acer phone at all in North America.

The Liquid e made its debut at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last week, and while there still isn't an official price or a spring date to mark on the calendars yet, some features to look forward to include a 3.5-inch touchscreen display, 7.2Mbps 3G capability, a Snapdragon 768MHz processor, Wi-Fi and a 5-megapixel camera.
