The Dell Aero: AT&T's Second Android Phone
The Dell Aero– coming soon to AT&T
AT&T was pretty busy during CTIA last week, definitely making some big waves. We already saw AT&T and Palm announce that the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus would be coming AT&T’s way, but that wasn’t all, not by a long shot– they also revealed their second official Android phone (this not including the Nexus One that just came out with support for AT&T 3G), together with Dell called the Dell Aero (yes, Dell the computer company).
So what is the Dell Aero? According to AT&T– not only is it an Android phone, but the lightest Android phone out there. Design and specs wise, it looks to be pretty solid as well:
- A thin, sleek all touchscreen design with a 3.5 inch touchscreen with nHD resolution (or what looks to be a solid screen that should be fine for doing all your tasks from viewing texts to watching videos)
- 5 megapixel camera with flash and built-in integration with Facebook, TwitPic, Flickr, Picassa and YouTube— For direct uploading of your pix and videos to your social network site of choice, straight from your phone.
- WiFi, GPS and 3G
Unfortunately, that appears to be all AT&T is saying on the Aero right now, and we don’t yet know other details such as price, release date or even what version of Android it is running (though whatever version it is, we know AT&T and Dell customized it pretty strongly as you can see in the pic above which looks nothing like the stock Android homescreen we’ve seen on phones like the Droid and Nexus One), but we’ll make sure to let you know as soon as we find out.
One more pic of the Aero’s customized menu after the break.
