Dell, a long-time Windows Mobile maker in its PDA days with the Axim lineup, has been quietly working on a smartphone for some time, and now BGR is reporting that some materialized evidence of Dell’s efforts. The smartphone will be exclusive to the Chinese market, running on Google’s mobile OS, and capping out at 2.5 G EDGE data speeds. Here are the full specs, as reported by BGR:
-Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE class 12
-103g grams weight
-Dimensions: 58 x 122 x 11.7mm
-Display: 3.5″ nHD 640×360 LCD, 18-bit, 262K colors
-Microsoft Exchange support
-Google, AIM, Yahoo and MSN IM support
-3 megapixel auto-focus, flash, 8x digital zoom camera with 30fps video shooting mode, built in photo editor
-USB 2.0, Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR
-On-screen QWERTY keyboard, hardwriting recognition, multi touch UI
As always, spy shots are kind of blurry, and the re-posted picture at the bottom is no exception to that rule.
It’d be interesting to see what Dell’s worldwide smartphone plans are, and whether the PC maker will also be bringing Android and/or Windows Mobile smartphones to the US, and hopefully at 3G data speeds, if not 4G depending on how late the launch is.
