Vodafone Nexus One coming soon?

nexus_one_vodafone_uk-1-small

Vodafone updated their Nexus One page, now showing under the “Coming Soon” tag that “soon” will be April. Interesting, considering April is a little over a week from coming to a close. Does this mean the handset will be available to those waiting for its release in a matter of days? Or could this be a case of simple error.

dell-lightning

Most, if not all, of the current Dell mobile phone run on Android, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be offering one that’ll have a different OS as an alternative to non-Android aficionados. In fact, this leaked Dell Lightning touchscreen QWERTY slider just proves that they’ve got a Windows Phone 7lined up for this year for interested consumers.

The Dell Lightning packs a large 4.1-inch WVGA OLED display (slightly larger than the one found on the XPERIA X10), 5-mp AF camera, 1GHz QSD8250 Snapdragon processor, GPS, 512MB RAM, 1GB flash ROM, and an 8GB microSD card. ETA for the AT&T and T-Mobile 3G compatible Dell Lightning is in Q4 of this year with an LTE variant possibly hitting the scene a year later in Q4 2011.

Dell Thunder & Lightning details emerge

dell We’ve known that Dell had plans to launch their own Android and Windows powered mobiles for a while but now details of two new handsets have started to emerge. The Dell Thunder and the Dell Lightning details have been leaked on the internet and images have already appeared on Engadget.

The Dell Thunder is expected to run Android 2.1, have a 4″ capacitive 480×800 OLED touchscreen, GPS, WiFi and 3G connectivity. It’s also rumoured to have a 1GHz Snapdragon processor. By the looks of the leaked images there will be a Sense-style user interface and we also expect Facebook and Twitter integration, Swype, Flash 10.1 and an 8-megapixel camera.

If the leaked information is to be believed then it looks like the Thunder will have a superb spec but it looks a bit ‘square’ for my taste.
