Dell Smoke clears up Android with a refreshing new look
Since the T-Mobile G1 came rolling along and bringing Android for the ride, we've seen pretty much the same form factors for these Android powered smartphones. Occasionally, we see some that decide to think outside the box to substantially make you wonder if it is even an Android handset. The Palm Pixi was regarded by many as a decently good looking device to offer a sleek chiseled look that packs a portrait style QWERTY, but when it comes to Android, there is very little that tries to emulate the Palm Pixi's form factor. Enter the Dell Smoke which clears things up and offers a refreshing look to brighten up Android's offering with its inexpensive taste. The rendered shot of the alleged device does offer an interesting new look not typical of Android – it features a 2.8” QVGA display, Qualcomm MSM7230 processor running at 800MHz, 5-megapixel auto-focus camera, 14.4Mbps HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and dual-microphones for noise canceling technology. On the software end, it's rumored to run Froyo just like the Dell Flash. In the end, Dell has really catapulted itself as a figure in the mobile world – and the Smoke only compliments all the other leaked handset offerings we've seen already. With a price tag that “won't break the bank”, the Dell Smoke may have the guts to extend its reach to various segments.
