Dell has been giving the world sneak peeks for months, but today is the official announcement of the Dell Streak, an upcoming tablet phone that is going to run Google's Android OS on a 1 GHz processor, and sport a 5-inch touchscreen.
In the midst of ongoing research, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is now saying that there is scientific evidence to suggest that cell phones do not pose a significant health risk as a result of radio frequency (RF) energy.
Dell CEO Michael Dell has made it official: AT&T is going to introduce the Dell Mini 5 this summer. The smartphone, also known by its code-name "Streak," is going to run Google's Android OS on a 1 GHz processor, and sport a 5-inch touchscreen.
In January, AT&T committed to releasing five smartphones running Google's Android OS in the first half of this year. So far it has released only one, and its deadline is coming up soon. New models from Dell, HTC and others are in the offing.
When AT&T first announced plans to offer the Dell Aero, it gave few details on the smartphone, only to mention that it will run Google's Android OS. Today, AT&T gave a much more complete description of the upcoming model.
Dell is reportedly working on a slender, lightweight and affordable smartphone running Google's Android OS. The Dell Smoke will have a design similar to the Palm Pixi, with a small keyboard fixed below its QVGA touchscreen.
The Dell Lightning will apparently be among the first models with Microsoft's upcoming Windows Phone 7, and will include features like a 1 GHz processor, a sliding keyboard and a 4.1-inch touchscreen.
The upcoming Dell Thunder will reportedly offer a range of high-end features, including a 4.1-inch, WVGA, OLED display and an 8 megapixel camera. It will join a growing family of Android OS-based models from Dell.
The FCC has approved a version of the Dell Mini 5 with support for the special version of 3G used by T-Mobile, a sign that the carrier may offer the Android OS-based device with a 5-inch touchscreen and 1 GHz processor.
AT&T is reportedly going to release Dell's first two devices running Google's Android OS in the next few months. The Dell Aero will be a low-priced smartphone with a 3-inch touchscreen, while the Dell Mini 5 will have a much larger display.
AT&T has pre-announced its plans to offer the Dell Aero, a re-branded version of Dell's first smartphone running Google's Android OS. Expected some time later this year, this model will include an alternate user interface created especially for it.
Dell's first tablet computer running Google's Android OS, the Mini 5, will be only the starting point -- the company plans to introduce tablets with larger touchscreens that will be more direct competitors for the Apple iPad.
