It will retail for £440, and it is a good thing that already includes VAT and delivery, which means the device is just a wee bit more affordable than the HTC 7 Pro and Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc.

Dell Presents Tablet Phone in Korea

Smartphones are too small for reading e-books, and tablet PCs fall short on portability. That’s why Dell is pioneering a new segment in the mobile communication market — the tablet phone, Ian Chapman-Banks, general manager of Dell Asia Pacific, said on Wednesday.

Dell Venue Android 2.2 phone is announced

The younger sibling of the Windows Phone 7 Dell Venue Pro, the Dell Venue has been announced and the Android OS isn’t the only change. The announcement was done by the Korean carrier KT, and while the remake was expected, a lot of people weren’t expecting for the external keyboard to be removed. It’s not that the virtual keyboard is all you can now use for typing, but our excitement goes down as the design doesn’t look that classy, and the attraction of a large keyboard-device is lost.

First Dell Android phone – Dell Aero

Of all the hot new Dell devices, the Dell Aero is probably the least exciting, although it’ll be first, coming to AT&T sometime soon in Q2 2010. In addition to it’s 3.5-inch (iPhone size) touchscreen, it’s coming with a stylus for handwriting recognition on the device (Apple Newton, anybody?)

It’ll also come with a Marvell 624MHz processor. While this is what the Motorola Droid (and a ton of other phones have), it sort of solidifies the Dell Aero as a mid-range Android phone when you look at competition from the various 1GHz Android superphones out there.

The Dell Aero will also come with only Android 1.5, although the leak says that Dell is planning an upgrade to Android 2.1 sometime later this year. The strange wording in the leak has got some thinking that maybe Dell might just not opt for an OTA update and only give new Aeros the 2.1 update. That would be really unfortunate.

Of course, there’s the AT&T issue. Their first Android phone – the Motorola Backflip – featured a heavily modified locked down version of Android. Some indications pointed towards the Dell Aero being the same way, but with the Backflip getting so much backlash, it isn’t out of the question that AT&T would free her up a bit – if their Apple overlord lets them.

Dell Smoke, Flash, and Thunder – three new Android phones

Dell is reportedly working on three different Google Android-powered smartphones as the PC manufacturer further expands into new markets, though price and release date information hasn’t been released.The Dell Smoke smartphone is similar to the Samsung BlackJack or Palm Pixi devices, with a 2.8-inch touchscreen and full QWERTY keyboard, thin design, and microSD support up to 32GB. The Dell Smoke runs the Android 2.2 Froyo OS.The Dell Flash is a slider phone with a design based off curved glass, has a 3.5-inch display, 3G, 512MB RAM, 5-megapixel camera, microSD card support up to 64GB, Bluetooth 3.0, and Wi-Fi. The Dell Flash runs Android 2.2 Froyo.The Dell Thunder is a bar-style phone that uses a 4.1-inch OLED display, 8-megapixel camera, and is said to include a mobile Hulu app built directly into the phone. It also has streaming radio, on-board video support, along with easy-to-use access to Twitter, Facebook, and other social networking sites.The Smoke, Thunder and Flash smartphones prove that Dell is intent on working itself into the Android smartphone market in the future. Apple and Research In Motion will not surprisingly stay locked into their platforms, but there are numerous options available for other companies.I have no problem using my RIM BlackBerry keyboard, but I’ve heard many phone owners request something besides a vertical keyboard. Aside from this physical design issue, I’m looking forward to hearing release information and pricing for each new phone.Dell can benefit by using Android since app developers are drawn to the open platform – and software advances can be shared in the community. Dell has some experience promoting both smartphones and Android devices, as the company first showed off the Mini 3 Android smartphone a few months ago. Sadly, the Dell Mini 3 smartphone is available for consumers in Brazil and China only, but US customers now have these 3 new slick devices to look forward to.

Dell Mini 5 Tablet Phone Might Be Released by T-Mobile

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has approved a version of the Dell Mini 5 with support for the special version of 3G used by T-Mobile, a sign that it may carry the Android OS-based device with a 5-inch Touchscreen and 1 GHz processor.

Information leaking from AT&T indicates that it intends to offer the Mini 5, but the FCC filing for a version with AWS support is the strongest evidence yet that it will be coming to T-Mobile as well. At the very least, Dell may offer an unlocked version for T-Mobile customers.

A possible release date remains unknown, however. AT&T will reportedly launch its version this summer.

A Preview of the Dell Mini 5
Dell is positioning the Mini 5 as a large smartphone rather than a small tablet, as it will have a 5-inch screen and the ability to make phone calls.

Its capacitive touchscreen will have a WVGA (800 x 480 pixel) resolution and support for multi-touch.

The Mini 5 is going to run Google’s Android OS on a 1 GHz processor. The prototype units that have been shown for the last few months run the older OS 1.6, but according to reports, it will debut with something more recent, possibly version 2.1.

Dell’s mini-tablet will sport 3G wireless access, and will also include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

The Mini 5 is going to include a 5-megapixel camera on its back, and a front-facing one for video conferencing.

In addition, it will include a 3.5-mm headphone jack.

The tablet and its successors are going to be bundled with a suite of entertainment, communications and productivity software, as well as an Adobe Flash player.

Dell Mini 5 Could Be Coming to AT&T

The Dell Mini 5 will be Dell’s second Android smartphone, boasting a 5-inch touchscreen and a SIM card slot. It could also be AT&T’s second Dell smartphone.

If you remember the leaks of the Dell Streak last year, it’s worth knowing that Dell showcased this device during CES. According to Pocket-lint, the device sports a SIM card slot and will be marketed as the Dell Mini 5. With the recent AT&T announcement of supporting Android, there’s a good chance we’ll see the Dell Mini 5 joining the Mini 3 on AT&T Wireless later this year.

Interestingly, the Dell Mini 5 will be available in several colors including pink, black and red. That would make it the first high-end Android smartphone to be offered in more than just the usual few mainstream colors.

According to Pocket-lint, the Dell Mini 5 will also boast a multi-touch display, though the demo units were only running Android 1.6. There’s obviously hope that Dell will offer some software that takes advantage of multi-touch, but it remains to be seen whether that will actually happen. For the time being, it seems like the European versions of Android phones are the only ones to get multi-touch software out-of-box.

Dell confirms Android-powered tablet device

Dell has teased with a new tablet/slate PC at its keynote speech at CES in Las Vegas.

Giving virtually no details, as per usual with Dell’s teasers, the new device will get a 5-inch screen size and be Android powered.

“It is 5-inches, however we are working on different screen sizes and form factors”, said a Dell spokesman.

Refusing to be drawn on a name for the device, the word “slate” (just like in Ballmer’s Microsoft  keynote speech) was bandied around.

The new model, which will go up against the currently available Archos Internet Tablet and recently announced JooJoo (formerly the CrunchPad), will allow users to surf the Web from a handheld device bigger than a touchscreen smartphone, but smaller than a standard netbook, whilst working in a similar way to a mobile phone.

Dell, has confirmed that the device will come with a built-in SIM card option making the HD2 from HTC look tiny in comparison.
