Working with top gadget blog is obviously very fun when you have the chance to try the shining new gadget that yet available in market. See how one of Engadget writer manage to spot and videos Dell Mini 5 hold by Michael Dell. It is very brief video but I’m sure that is pretty exciting. That chance doesn’t come that often..
I suppose that ‘incident’ wasn’t stopped there. By now, I guess they have been granted the permission by Michael Dell to have the first look into Dell Mini 5. So there are now more images of Dell Mini 5 complete with the video as well.
Dell Mini 5 is one ‘giant’ smart phone with huge touch screen. As expected, it’s running on Android OS. The only spec that known so far , is Snapdragon 1Ghz processor, the chip that powering this giant.
If you take a look at one photos comparing Dell Mini 5 and iPhone, you’ll notice that Dell Mini 5 is a lot bigger than iPhone . It may not fit nicely into most pockets. It’s too bulky also to be a regular smart phone when more peoples now bring along more than 1 phone. It has the potential as mini tablet which seems to be more suitable category for Dell Mini 5.
Stay tune for more impressions post, stated at the end of that post.
Dell, a brand very synonym with affordable PC has confirmed their entrance into the smartphone market. It’s Dell Mini 3, if you wondering what would the first smartphone from Dell be called.
Dell is partnering with various carriers to market their smartphone. What’s more interesting is, on the press release, Maxis is listed as among the earliest carriers that going to sell this phone.
In addition Dell has existing agreements with other leading global telecom providers, including Vodafone in Europe; Australia/New Zealand, AT&T and Verizon in the U.S.; M1 and Starhub in Singapore; and Maxis in Malaysia, creating more opportunities to meet the needs of a connected lifestyle.
Given Maxis position as the leading carriers in the local market, it’s obvious why Maxis is the primary target. But it’s too early to predict how Dell Mini 3 will be performing, and how it will help Maxis to further strengthen it’s position.
Dell Mini 3 will run on Google Android (hopefully 2.0), and although no spec has been released, here is what I found from BGR.
