Dell 2011 Road Map Leaks, More Android Smart Phones and Tablets on Horizon

The 2011 road map for Dell has landed online and we’re only happy to learn of new Android devices to put on our watch list.  Look for additional smart phones and tablets from the PC giant, including the Millennium, Hancock, and Silver Oak.

The full details are a bit lean at this point but we can hope to expect the Ice Cream (Sandwich) version of Android running on the Hancock with a 4-inch qHD screen, an 8-megapixel (HD) camera, and a front-facing camera of 1.3-megapixels.  Judging by the really tiny image of the road map, the Hancock should feature a 4-row sliding QWERTY keyboard.  The Millennium looks to be a nearly identical handset save for it being a larger (4.3-inch) touch only phone with DLNA support.

On the tablet front, we have even less for the four Android units on the horizon from Dell.  Beginning around April and heading into early 2012, we will see the Gallo (Honeycomb), followed by the Sterling (Q4)  and the  Opus One and Dell Silver Oak in Q1 of next year.  The road map also mentions that a few of the tablets (Gallo, Streak 7)will see handwriting recognition updates later in 2011.
