As we’ve known for a while, the Acer Liquid Android device has a processor from the Snapdragon family, just as the HD2 has, however, it has been determined that the HD2, or any WM6.5 device for that matter, cannot play 720p HD video. This is obviously not a Qualcomm issue since the Snapdragon processor can obviously handle the playback on Android, so the limitation boils down to Windows Mobile. One source says the issue may go away once Windows Mobile is upgraded to run on the Windows CE 6 core instead of its current Windows CE 5 core.

It looks like Qualcomm doesn’t want to wait around for that though. They’ve posted a job opening on their LinkedIn page asking for some talented developers to solve the decoding issue on Windows Mobile.
