Dell Android Phone Leak

Dell's rumored Android device may have finally been captured in an image captured in a Chinese forum post (membership required to see). The image shows a handset with a full and reportedly capacitive (finger-controlled) touchscreen running Google's mobile OS, but reveals few other clues as to its features. It clearly exists in a prototype stage and not yet close to product.

The images' Chinese origin appears to support claims that the phone would launch first in that country using the government-backed Open Mobile System (OMS) variant of Android, which is also being shared by a Lenovo smartphone and multiple other handsets. Dell is rumored to have encountered embarassing delays for its entry into smartphones after early prototypes were reportedly rejected by Western carriers for being too similar to hardware they already sold.

    Well, duh!

    "Dell is rumored to have encountered embarassing delays for its entry into smartphones after early prototypes were reportedly rejected by Western carriers for being too similar to hardware they already sold."

    When exactly has Dell created a unique & original yet credible product?
