In a totally expected turn of events, Engadget (source) has once again got hold of some pretty confidential tech documents; This time the pertinent details of two upcoming smartphones from Dell -- One running on Windows Phone 7 OS; The other, on Google's Android operating system.
Dell Lightning - The Ultimate Windows 7 Phone (?)
The renders on these slides look slick as hell, but they're no match for the spec sheet, which looks even better: 1GHz QSD8250 Snapdragon processor, WVGA 4.1-inch OLED display, [...] 3G, five megapixel autofocus camera, 1GB of flash with 512MB RAM plus 8GB of storage on a MicroSD card (non-user-replaceable, we're assuming), GPS, accelerometer, compass, FM radio, and full Flash support including video playback. We'll see what happens with that -- the ship date is pegged at Q4 - Engadget (via source link)
Dell Thunder - Runs on Android, Dons a 4.1" OLED Screen
[W]hile "Lightning" is the company's answer to Windows Phone extravagance, the Dell Thunder that's leaking out along side does up Android 2.1 with similar aplomb and a 4.1-inch WVGA OLED screen. There's a heavily custom Dell "Stage" UI on top, which seems much different (and classier) than what we've seen on the Streak or Aero. It apparently ties into Facebook and Twitter for social networking, and taps Swype for a touchscreen keyboard replacement, along with grabbing just a pinch of HTC's Sense good looks. Dell's document also claims this has Flash 10.1 for watching web videos, along with a mention of an "integrated web video Hulu app." [...] There is supposed to be an 8 megapixel camera, however, and the phone will be sold [...] around Q4 of this year, with an LTE model to follow near the end of 2011. - Engadget (via source link)
No word on pricing nor exact release date for both devices yet.
