We already know Dell is working on an Android smartphone and now we learn they have an Android MID (mobile internet device) as well. Vietnamese site Tinhte.com got their hands on an early prototype and captured a quick video. The engineering sample lists the model variant as “US” so it might be headed for our shores.

Highlights of the device include:

  • 5-inch WVGA 800 x 480 touchscreen
  • Android 2.0
  • 5-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash
  • Front-facing video camera
  • 1,300 mAh battery
  • WiFi, Bluetooth and 3G WWAN connectivity

Important details like pricing and availability are unknown at this time.

I’m not really sold on Android MIDs yet after reading the early reviews of the Archos 5. If you own an Android phone, why would you want to carry around a 2nd device like this?

Update: Everyone is calling this a MID, but the pictures from Tinhte clearly show an incoming call. I guess we will have to wait and see when more information leaks out about the device.

The picture speaks for itself.
