Dell Mini 5 Passes FCC With AT&T 3G Bands, Engadget Gets One

Dell and Android fans should be happy to see this one.  The Dell Mini 5 has earned FCC approval with 3G bands needed for AT&T, Rogers, Bell, and Telus 3G.  While this has been rumored for a while and Dell officially said they were launching a device for AT&T, this is the first confirmation we have that the device is actually the Dell Mini 5.  RF tests reports this as a “mobile internet device” with support for WiFi plus full HSPA on WCDMA bands II and V (that’s the coverage needed by AT&T, Rogers, Bell, and Telus) plus EDGE on the same frequencies. Hopefully we will be getting our hands on this device very soon.  Personally, I can’t wait.

For now however, we get to live vicariously through Engadget’s  hands-on.  There’s a pair of galleries and short video up online now.  Check back for more as we can get it!
