Dell Ophone named

A report from earlier this week had Dell's smartphone launching in China this week. A new, Tuesday report backs up those rumors, and goes on to unveil the name of the device. To be called mini3i, the device will launch at China Mobile. Sold under the Ophone brand, the carrier plans to add rebadged devices from other manufacturers under the new name.

The name comes from the Open Mobile System that is preloaded onto the handsets, which is a variation of Google's Android with custom apps that is backed by the Chinese government. Lenovo and Dopod (HTC's trade name in mainland China) may also bring out their own Ophones over the course of the next few days. Ophones will only be compatible with TD-SCDMA 3G networks unique to China.
