Dell Aero Android Smartphone Finally Released
Over five months after initially being announced, Dell’s first smartphone — the Android-powered Aero — is finally available for purchase through the computing giant’s website. Originally released in China as the Mini 3, the 3.5-inch slate-style handset offers up a thoroughly mid-range set of features, including a 624MHz Marvell processor, 640 x 360 pixel resolution, and — making today’s LG Loop look pretty advanced in comparison — Android version 1.5 at the core.
On the plus side, a five-megapixel camera with flash is included, along with WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, and tri-band HSDPA (AT&T bands), plus ActiveSync capabilities for syncing with Outlook. Still not available directly from AT&T, the Aero is going for $100 on two-year contract, or $300 without.
