Analyst claims Dell Android phone still enroute

Dell Android phone in fall

A Collins Stewart analyst believes Dell's rumored Android powered mobile device will be a cellphone after all and be launched in limited numbers via China Unicom. Ashok Kumar said he checked with electronics manufacturer Foxconn, which is said to be the contracted builder for the device. Kumar said other Chinese carriers passed on the Dell devices, which will reportedly run on ARM's Marvell processor.

Kumar also believes the device will have little to distinguish it from competing products, saying early looks have the phone being a "me-too product" along with a price that "offers little advantage over established players."

The release of this device would mark Dell's first smartphone, Android-powered or otherwise. Dell discontinued its Axim line of PDAs in 2007 and has yet to make a return to the handheld device industry.
