Dell Flash, Smoke, and Thunder appear on Android’s radar

The Aero and Streak are no longer the only Android phones in Dell’s lineup. Engadget has posted some leaked slides which reveal two new devices coming in Q4 2010 and early 2011.

The Dell Thunder.

First up is the Dell Thunder which runs Android 2.1 on a Snapdragon processor with a 4.1 inch WVGA OLED display. The high-end phone also features an 8 megapixel camera with on-device image (and video) editing for easy sharing.

Running on top of Android 2.1 will be Dell’s Stage UI. The new user interface looks like a mix of HTC’s Sense UI and Motorola’s Motoblur with its tight social integration.

One of the more interesting features of the Thunder is its unlimited online storage space. Dell will offer unlimited support from the clouds to store and retrieve all of your data.

Look for the phone to appear on AT&T around Q4 2010, with a possible 4G LTE version in late 2011.

The Dell Flash.

Next we have the Dell Flash which is said to run the upcoming Froyo build of Android on a Qualcomm 800 MHz MSM7230 processor paired with a 3.5 inch WVGA TFT display. Other notable features include a 5 megapixel camera, TV-out, and support for HSPA+ (up to 14.4 Mbps down, 5.6 Mbps up).

This device is slated for AT&T and could appear in Q1 2011. The Flash will feature the same Stage UI and also offer unlimited syncing with the clouds.

The Dell Smoke.

Finally we have the Dell Smoke which offers the most interesting form factor. Dell has paired a portrait QWERTY keyboard with a 2.8 inch QVGA display. The Smoke also features the 800MHz MSM7230, 5 megapixel camera, and HSPA 14.4Mbps. Look for this phone to be dropping in Q2 2011.

      Its not easy to be forgotten –especially when there are only few win phone 7 phones who made a debut earlier. The specs is not what you call “super” — but its a fairly good phone with a classy 4.1 inch screen. Reactions to Dell Lightning.

    Wow, no wonder apple shat themselves and sued HTC… android is moving FAST!

    Unlimited cloud storage? Picture and video editing? 4″ screen? I’ll have to see what other manufacturers are doing at the end of 2011 when I go to replace my Droid… but all of those features coupled with LTE on VZW would definitely be worth some consideration. Hopefully those are all standard features in a year and a half…
