Michael Dell confirms Android phone launch in the US

Dell’s CEO Michael Dell has recently confirmed the fact that his company prepares to launch an Android smartphone in the US – although he didn’t say if the smartphone will be a remade version of the Mini 3i (recently announced in China), or a completely new device.

AT&T is the carrier that will release Dell’s first US Android smartphone.

According to Techpulse 360 (via eWeek), the smartphone will probably be available in the first months of 2010.

By early 2010, there will be many new Android handsets on the market, so Dell has to be very careful with this upcoming phone if it wants to be successful. Partnering with AT&T seems to be a good move anyway, especially since the giant carrier doesn’t have (for now) an Android smartphone in its offering. We’ll see how things turn out after the Holidays.

    I will believe it when I see it. AT&T is weird about Android.

    I dislike AT&T, I actually think their CEO is weird about Open Source and Linux.
