Dell Mini 3iX visits the Feds, passes the test with AT&T 3G frequencies on board
Recently, we have seen Dell's Android powered smartphone, the Mini 3i, announced in China and then spotted in Brazil with Wi-Fi added as the Mini 3iX. Obviously this device travels well and no less than Michael Dell has said to expect an Android flavored Dell handset in the U.S. in 2010 as we have reported. Unwired View says that Mr. Dell explicitly said that the carrier would be AT&T. Thus, it is really not too surprising that the 3iX visited the FCC on Friday and while meeting with the diligent rubber stampers, the phone was carrying the 850/1900 frequencies for GSM and UMTS, a perfect match for AT&T.

Unlike the version of the phone for China. the U.S. model is equipped with Wi-Fi (hence the "X" in the name) and will offer a 3.5 inch touchscreen with resolution of 640 X 360 pixels, A-GPS, a 3MP camera and support for Microsoft Exchange. There was no clue which version of the Android OS would be running on the device. Now that the FCC has waved it along, the next step could be up to AT&T. And with 2010 only about 7 weeks away, news could come at any time.
