Dell Aero – Android Never Looked So Good


Besides the status bar, you wouldn’t know this was Android. This in my opinion could be the best looking Android UI we have seen since HTC Sense. The phone I talk about is soon to be released by AT&T called the Dell Aero; a version of the Dell Mini 3i. I can not say much about functionality as the phone has not been released but first impressions like this make me all warm and fuzzy inside. As for what we’ve heard about the specifications it has a 5MP camera, 640×360 touchscreen, and other features seen in the Mini 3i. The screen size is an unusual one for Android that we don’t see often; halfway between a G1 and a Nexus One.

This phone is announced along side the first pair of GSM webOS smartphones, Palm Pre and Palm Pixi, to make it to the United States.  It also marks the second Android phone to come to AT&T since the Motorola Backflip. We can only hope that the Dell Aero does not follow in the Backflip’s disastrous footsteps. No release date known yet.

  1. I dunno, it doesn't look bad or anything, but it looks very 'dumbphone' ish. It looks like any old ui from the 90's, and doesn't really appeal to me. That being said, in action, this may be really nice.

    • "but it looks very 'dumbphone' ish."

      Um…how? Theres no standard keyboard on the thing. The graphics are fancier then what is on the iPhone…seriously…what phone in the 90's had color, email, camera, updated weather on the main screen. 90's? Please. You don't have to like the phone or be impressed by it, but what's with the making up demonstrably inaccurate comparisons about?

  2. I've had my AT&T Nexus One for only a few days, but I can't see myself trading it in for something like this. I love the "Google Experience" UI provided by the N1. However, this is the beauty of Android. People can have a choice of the different Android flavors while still having access to the underlying Android OS.

  3. ::site is live if you type it in but link doesn't seem to work

    I'm actually surprised that AT&T even acknowledged this as an Android phone considering all the commercials I've heard/seen only refer to the Moto Backflip as "with MotoBlur" but don't speak a word of Android. Even more-so than that, they seem to acknowledge (I assume) the Nexus One via this page:
    just as a phone manufactured by HTC (unless there's another one coming up from HTC)

    but they still downplay Android a bit by claiming it has "hundreds of apps and thousands of widgets" as compared to the 100k + apps the iCrap can do

  4. this phone is sick, the UI looks amazing and with the android app store iphone could have a run for its money. check this thing out when its released

  5. smart idea i like it but it looks weird and dumb the iphone is much much better !!!!! espesially the person who invented it!ya u shall never know who wrote this hhahahhahahhahahahahhahahahahahahahahahhahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhhaaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhaahhahahahhahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa ayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  6. The conference was under Chatham House rules, but broadly speaking: the Chinese were furious about the Taiwan arms sale, arguing it had come at a time when relations between the island and mainland China were at their best for years.
