When AT&T first announced plans to offer the Dell Aero, it gave few details on this smartphone, just that it will run Google’s Android OS. Today, AT&T gave a more complete description of the upcoming model.

It will be able to connect to the carrier’s 3G mobile broadband network, and it will also have Wi-Fi. It will likely include Bluetooth as well, but the carrier hasn’t confirmed this yet.

In addition, the Aero is going to sport a 5 megapixel camera, which is a higher resolution than previously thought.

As a consumer-oriented smartphone, it will also come with a range of social-networking software, like Facebook. Camera images can be uploaded directly to Facebook as well as Flickr, Picasa and TwitPic, while movies can be sent to YouTube.

AT&T still has not said when the Dell Aero will be released, but a recent unconfirmed report indicated that it will debut in June.

A price has yet to be revealed, either by official or unofficial channels.
