Dell’s ‘Launch Ready’ Benzine

dell_benzineJust a few days ago we brought word of Dell’s Mini3i, the OPhone-based handset head for China.  After about 18 months worth of rumors, we finally have an actual handset to talk about and not just speculation.    So, with that out of the way, let’s dig in a little deeper.

First off, according to BGR,  we should stop referring to it as the Mini3i and instead call it ‘Benzine’ from here on out.  The image above shows what looks Palm Pre-ish, sans the keyboard of course.  Claimed to be launch ready, a sizable list of known specs has also made their way online.

  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE class 12
  • Size: 68.6cc
  • 103g grams weight
  • Dimensions: 58 x 122 x 11.7mm
  • Display: 3.5″ nHD 640×360 LCD, 18-bit, 262K colors
  • OTA capable
  • 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
  • A-GPS
  • On-screen QWERTY keyboard, hardwriting recognition, multi touch UI
  • MicroSD slot

We don’t know the memory or processor speed just yet, but everything else appears to be standard Android hardware fare.  Nothing super incredible that we see.

    It is great that finally the much awaited dell’s handset has come and become a reality. As regards its features, according to BGR, we should stop referring to it as the Mini3i and instead call it ‘Benzine’ from here on out. Thanks for the information.
