Dell is still adamant on releasing the Dell Lightning
The last time we've heard anything out of Dell's camp, it had to been the rush of new devices they're working on for both Windows Phone 7 and Android. However, it was quite clear that there was more focus being placed on Android as there were three devices leaked for it as opposed to the single one for Windows Phone 7. Naturally Android's lightning quick pace in moving up the mobile market share could be part of the reason – which ultimately leaves some doubts that they may pass up on continuing with the Windows Phone 7 powered Dell Lightning. Fortunately though, those thoughts can be put at ease as CEO Michael Dell re-affirmed their commitment to Windows Phone 7 during a conference call. He said, “We’re very much working with Android and Windows Mobile 7, and we see those platforms as more attractive alternatives to other suggestions that you may have offered.” Now the “other suggestions” he mentions is the possibility of Dell coming into the game with their own mobile operating system. Still, it looks more promising that the rumored Dell Lightning will continue to live on and see an eventual launch into the market.

Still waiting for them to show this phone, I'd like to see it in reality.

Yeah, this phone looks really cool. I hope WP7 is able to survive because its direct-x support and high graphic support should make it stand out to other mobile OS platforms. But it is cool they are doing a Windows and Android variation.
