Dell Smoke, Brand New Android 2.2 Device, Looking Hot
Dell’s coming in full force, ready to deliver some cool Android 2.2 devices, in cool form factors. The one we’re dealing with here is Dell Smoke, a handset that resembles Palm’s Pixi, but only better. “Smoke” is a mere codename for now and what we know about the device is that it runs Android Froyo on a 2.8 inch QVGA display.
In case you’re wondering, Froyo is the unofficial name for Android 2.2. Dell Smoke uses an unconventional design, packing a portrait QWERTY keyboard under a pretty decent display. This BlackBerry rival is supposed to reach the market in Q2 2011, featuring a Qualcomm next-gen MSM7230 processor at 800 MHz, a 5 megapixel autofocus camera and a microSD card slot (32GB).
14.4 Mbps HSPA is also on its feature list, plus WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and dual microphone noise cancelling. All of these come in a 12mm package, that seems very enjoyable.
