The Aero, Dell's new Android-based smartphone, is coming to AT&T the carrier has announced. They were not very specific about what you can expect but they promise to have more details soon. Pricing and release dates have not been revealed either. Basically, the only thing they did confirm is that the Aero is an Android phone and it will include an alternate user interface created especially for it by Dell.
And apparently the Aero is just a re-branded version of Dell's original smartphone that took advantage of Google's Operating System: the Dell Mini 3iX. At least that's the rumor among online tech geeks. They are basing this on pictures of the new phone, which are very similar to the the Mini 3iX. Specs for the Mini 3iX included a 3.5-inch screen, GPS, 360 x 640 touchscreen, 3.2 megapixel camera, a microSD memory card, Wi-Fi, 3G, and Bluetooth.
There are also rumors floating around that AT&T will be picking up a second Android-based smartphone from Dell in near future. The phone, the Dell Mini 5, will be bigger than the Mini 3iX, with a 5-inch display, a WVGA (800 x 600 pixel) resolution, and be a capacitive touch screen with support for multi-touch. Whether or not and when it will be released in the United States is not known at this time.
