Full of eastern promise
Dell has finally taken the wraps off its first smartphone offering, but it appears to be targeting only the huge Chinese mobile market, for now.
Chinese language site 163.com took a few photos of the Mini 3i at a China Mobile event. Details are sketchy, especially considering the limitations of Google Translate, but it appears to be a 2G device running a variant of Android developed by China Mobile called OMS (open mobile system).
The Dell Mini 3i has a 3.5 inch capacitive touchscreen and no physical keyboard, a 3.2MP camera, mini USB port and a mini SD slot. It was unveiled at a launch event for China Mobile's new Mobile Market online application platform, so all indications so far are that the handset will be limited to China.
