Without any Android handsets from Dell yet to make an official splash in the US, China is already getting treated to a second Android powered handset from the US based PC manufacturer. The Dell Mini 3T1 will follow the Mini 3i (aka Dell Aero for AT&T) as the second Android offering that'll be bound for the world's largest cell phone market. This time around, Dell is attacking the lower-end of the segment with the Mini 3T1 as it features TD-SCDMA connectivity, 2-megapixel camera, WAPI, and China Mobile's customized version of Android called oPhone. Adding an affordable device will allow the manufacturer to entice consumers who are on the fence of jumping straight into Android – the affordable nature of the handset will obviously play to its strengths. Just looking at the rendered images that recently appeared in China clearly displays some of the design elements incorporated in their laptop designs – which isn't a bad thing because it still looks nice. It may not have that slick polished look that embodies the Dell Mini 3i/Aero, rather, we're more confident consumers will overlook its design in favor for its entry-level price point. Expected to be available shortly, Dell is looking to become a prominent figure in the smartphone business in China.
