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.



Engadget also just published leaked information on the Dell Lightning. This is expected to be a Windows Phone 7 handset. According to the leaked spec sheets the Dell Lightning boasts a 4.1-inch OLED touchscreen, a 5-megapixel camera, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, a slide-out QWERTY keypad and a 1GHz Snapdragon processor. In a further leak the Dell Lightning is said to be coming soon to T-Mobile. How true that is I don’t know but I doubt ‘soon’ is accurate as we are not expecting to see Windows Phone 7 to see the light of day until much later this year.
