Dell Aero gets the green light from the FCC; Q2 launch on track?
With an expected Q2 launch for the Android flavored Dell Aero, there are no seconds to waste if the manufacturer's first U.S. sold handset is to meet the rumored time frame. That explains the importance of the FCC visit by the Aero, with a trip to AT&T stores being the next big step. As we reported, the carrier will not cripple the phone like it did with another Android device, the Motorola BACKFLIP. That model saw many of the usual Google apps get axed in exchange for the carrier's own software. The Aero, also known as the Dell Mini 3iG (model V01B), features Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and support for UMTS 1900/850 connectivity. Pricing is still unknown.

Scary apple fanboys always call every other competitors "iPhone wannabe" anyway, not surprised. Plus this thing is hardly looking anything like an iPhone Flash contents, miniUSB port, camera shutter, 5 MP camera, not to mention android OS 2.1 looks just fabulous, though I never actually own an android phone.

I think this is gonna be that silent destroyer. I know a bunch of gadget nerds are writing this off, but I think it's gonna be a hit. The processor might be the only weak point, but I can see hipsters eating this up.

I want one of these . . . I dont think thr processor will be an issue. I have an unlocked g1, a backflip, a rogers version sony x10, and a nexus one and have owned almost every other android model out there . . . And can tell you a 1 ghz processor is nice but is noticed most if you run tons of stuff simultaneously.. or when you are installing apps . . .but most people will never notice if only running a couple 2 or 3 things at once and are taking advantage of your task killers . . 624mhz is plenty :-) , the camera looks to have more goodies than most other andoid models , it looks very nice and professional and not like a kids phone and most other specs are in line to make this phone worth the purchase . . It should make for an excellent upper middle range smart phone.
