For those of you who have been waiting to get their hands on the Dell Aero smartphone as it goes on sale from AT&T, I have a bit of bad news: it won’t allow the installation of unsigned Android applications.
This is according to Dell itself, speaking to PhoneNews.com. It appears the company isn’t the one who is imposing this restriction, but the exclusive carrier AT&T, which has done the same thing to other phones like the Motorola Backflip, for example.
This restriction regarding unsigned Android applications will no doubt spark a bit of an outrage for potential customers. Fortunately, there are other alternatives to the Dell Aero. Unless, of course, something can be done about AT&T’s business decisions.
