After months of speculation, finally today at CES, No. 2 PC-maker Dell confirmed itâ€™s launching an Android handset for the U.S. The not-so-surprising news is that the carrier behind this launch is the iPhoneâ€™s own home network: AT&T.
There are no details about hardware specifications, price or availability, but from previous rumors we’re expectingÂ it to feature a 3.5 inch capacitive touchscreen display, with a resolution of 640Ã—360 and a 3 megapixel camera. We’ll keep you posted as details become available.

Dell is not a new comer to the handheld market and this is technically not their first Android offer either.Â This smartphone will be a revised version of the Dell Mini 3i thatâ€™s being sold in China and Brazil.Â They are also highly regarded in the industry by their very successful line of PDAs back in the early 2000â€™s the Axims.Â A little, yet ironic fact is that those were manufactured by the then unknown HTC, marketed under the Dell brand.
