Dell Officially Announces Android Handset for AT&T

Dell Mini 3After months of speculation, finally today at CES, No. 2 PC-maker Dell confirmed it’s launching an Android handset for the U.S. The not-so-surprising news is that the carrier behind this launch is the iPhone’s own home network: AT&T.

There are no details about hardware specifications, price or availability, but from previous rumors we’re expecting it to feature a 3.5 inch capacitive touchscreen display, with a resolution of 640×360 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.  This smartphone will be a revised version of the Dell Mini 3i that’s being sold in China and Brazil. They are also highly regarded in the industry by their very successful line of PDAs back in the early 2000’s the Axims.  A little, yet ironic fact is that those were manufactured by the then unknown HTC, marketed under the Dell brand.
