Dell smartphone roadmap leaks, powerful new Android and WP7 handsets on the way
Dell has big plans for this year, plans that involve some interesting smartphones, running either Android or Windows Phone 7. And today Dell’s smartphone roadmap for 2011 has leaked, bringing us the first glimpse into what Dell has in store for us.
At the beginning of the leaked shot we see the already familiar Venue and Venue Pro. Then, in May, the Dell Venue Pro MLK is slated. It’s unclear at this time what ‘MLK’ may stand for, but our best guess is that that’s when the smartphone will receive the first Windows Phone 7 software update.
Next up, in July, the Dell Wrigley will be released. This is another device with a portrait-sliding full physical QWERTY keyboard, like the Venue Pro. It will have a 1 GHz processor, a 4-inch WVGA (800×480) touchscreen, and an 8-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording.
In September, the Android-powered Dell Hancock is set to hit the streets. This will have a side-sliding QWERTY keyboard and will run Android Ice Cream. It will have a dual-core processor, a 4-inch qHD (960×540) touchscreen, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with 1080p full HD video recording, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.
The Dell Millennium will arrive in October. This smartphone will not have a physical keyboard. It will have a dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch qHD touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera with 1080p full HD video recording, a VGA front-facing camera, and DLNA certification. Like the Hancock, the Millennium will run Android Ice Cream.
