Dell Starts Selling its First Smartphone

Dell, mostly know as a computer manufacturer has officially entered the mobile phone market in the US with its first smartphone “The Aero”.

The Aero is a 3.5-inch touch screen phone that runs on Google Android OS and it is available for just $100($99.99) with a 2-year contract with AT&T. It is also available without the contract for $300($299.99). Whats with the 1-cent discount ?

The phone weighs about 3.67 ounces (104 grams), and comes with a 5-megapixel camera. The quad-band phone includes Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless capabilities. It is capable of communicating over HSDPA (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access) 3G wireless networks, and GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) and GPRS .

Anyway, the phone is available in Dell’s website and you can get it from there itself.

Though Aero is not Dell’s first smartphone in the market. It has already experimented with a smartphone called the ‘Mini 3i” in china. Dell though kept it a secret as how well the phone performed in the market. I guess not so well, else they would have definitely made some press release regarding it.

Dell said the Aero would support a version of Adobe Systems Inc.’s Flash, a key software program that powers most Internet video and advertising. Flash has become a hot-button issue among technology companies since Apple publicly announced it would not support the software in its iPhone and iPad tablet computer devices.

The Aero’s release follows initial U.S. sales of the company’s tablet computer, the “Streak,” which also doubles as a cellphone. Like the Aero, the company’s tablet uses Android software.
