Dell to Offer 800MHz of Froyo Sexiness with ‘Flash’

That picture you are staring above this paragraph… it’s a Dell phone. Yep, that sleek beauty is called the Flash and it’s yet another Android phone to begin pining over. Engadget has scored what appears to be an entire handset roadmap for the PC giant tonight and this marks the second Android unit. Let’s get into the nuts and bolts, shall we?

Compared to the Thunder, the Flash feels like Dell’s idea of a mid-range device. The phone features a 3.5-inch WVGA LCD touch display, a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and image stabilization, and TV-output. For the real geeky types, the Flash is powered by an 800MHz Qualcomm MSM7230 processor and boasts 512MB RAM and ROM with microSD expansion up to 64GB. Oh yeah, we almost forgot – it will be running Android Froyo with Flash 10.1 capability as well! The only bad news we can find comes in the expected release.  Look for this one on AT&T in the early parts of 2011.

Head to Engadget to see the full leaked document with extra pictures!

      It's the same CPU as in the Nexus One, just slightly lower clocked. The rest of the chip is quite a bit better than what's in the Nexus One, a better 3D graphics part for example.
