We’re placing this in the rumor category for now, but Dell’s smartphone entry has been spotted with a slick slab design that is reminiscent of the Palm Pre when closed or even the iPhone. However, Dell’s entry will be more open-source being powered by Google’s Android operating system. Looks like HTC is going to get some competition in the Android space. The Windows Mobile manufacturer was first to the Android market with the T-Mobile G1. Unlike HTC’s G1 design, Dell’s design looks a bit cleaner without navigation controls–like the trackball on the G1–nor buttons.
