Dell Mini 5 (Streak) MID is Taken Apart [Video]

Last year on October we heard of the Android-powered Dell Streak MID, then a month later, there was a rumor saying this device would be arriving at AT&T. Well, it hasn't arrived just yet, but someone over at Tinhte already had fun tearing the Dell device down. The Dell Mini 5 (aka Dell Streak) had a "surgery" which revealed a 1,530mAh battery, a 3G modem with SIM slot and WiFi support. The 5-inch Android-powered device also comes with the already famous 1GHz Snapdragon processor. The video also reveals that this new device from Dell comes equipped with not only one, but two microSD card slots. It is believed that one of those slots might be for either onboard storage or for Google's Android OS. No word on pricing or availability.

The first thing China Mobile wants you to notice is that they will offer the mini 3i in two colors; Red Passion and Oiled Bronze. And of course that is arriving later this month, although I wonder how late, if we are at the end already by just a few days. Well, I guess that's what they meant; in just a few days.

Dell Streak MID to be first Android device on AT&T?

We hear from sister site SlashGear about the Dell Streak MID, which will use Android as its Operating System. Chinese Commercial Times is claiming that AT&T will be the US carrier of this Dell device, and that it will be built by Qisda. An exact release date was not given, just the year, which is 2010. Now at this point in time, all this is just rumors, but it is kind of weird and funny that the company that hasn't release a single Android device and the company who doesn't want to release an Android phone in the US - at least not yet - join forces to release this device. Maybe it makes sense, maybe I'm just crazy, nevertheless, it is weird. Don't you think? Let us know in the comments what you think is going on. Anyway, the Dell Streak seems to be a nice device, and as far as we know, it sports a 5-inch WVGA 800 x 480 touchscreen, WiFi, Bluetooth and 3G WWAN connectivity. It also has a 5-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, a microSD card slot for extra storage, and a 1,300mAh battery.

Dell Mini 3i gets Unboxed after a few Hours of been Officially Announced

So Dell already announced that it will be marketing an Android smartphone in China and Brazil. Well, a few hours later the same Dell smartphone - named Mini 3i - was unboxed by the guys over at PConline. Also, a few surprises were revealed on this unboxing. For some reason, Dell decided that a 3.5mm headphone jack - which any respectable phone has nowadays - is not important to have on this smartphone. Instead, they included a handsfree kit of their own, which connects to the miniUSB port. The good thing for those who want to use their own headphones is that Dell also included a miniUSB to 3.5mm headphones adapter socket. Another surprise is that they put a stylus as part of the goodies inside the box of the Mini 3i. But don't worry, the phone does have a 3.5-inch capacitive display, the stylus is similar to the Pogo stylus for the iDon't phone. And the truth is that many people in China will appreciate this when they get to input Chinese characters. When exactly will this new Android phone make its way to the US is uncertain. But we'll keep you up to date. [Via SlashGear]

DELL to sell Android based Mini 3 Smartphone

Okay, so we knew it was coming, Dell gets their hands on anything they can, so an Android smartphone from Dell was the obvious next step. First, Dell’s official blog confirmed the news, and then, the official press release came out. But first, it'll show up in China and Brazil. Why in those two countries first? Well, according to Dell, size baby, size, China Mobile has over 500 million subscribers, and Claro in Brazil serves more than 42 million people. I personally do not believe all those 500 million in China will buy a Dell phone, but hey, what can I say, Dell wants them to. Dell has already an existing telecom partnership with both, China Mobile and Brazil's Claro. Lets not forget that back in April, Dell was the first to embed China Mobile’s technology into the Mini 10 netbook. Here's what Ron Garriques, President of Dell Global Consumer Group had to say:
Our entry into the smart phone category is a logical extension of Dell’s consumer product evolution over the past two years. We are developing smaller and smarter mobile products that enable our customers to take their internet experience out of the home and do the things they want to do whenever and wherever they want.
