Yes, it’s hard to believe that Dell’s first smartphone is ready to launch. Engadget repots that they have details on announcing the Mini 3 for Brazil and China. As expected, the Chinese Dell’s Mini 3i variant is quadband GSM/EDGE only (no 3G) and packs a 3.5-inch nHD, 640×360 touchscreen display just like that found on Nokia’s N97.
The 58.35 x 122 x 11.7-mm Mini 3i will ship in two colors: “Red Passion” and “Oiled Bronze”, packing Bluetooth, a 3 megapixel auto-focus camera with flash and video capture mode, microSD slot, and GPS with pre-loaded maps. Maybe, you’re thinking why China first and not the US. The answer is simple: Dell’s going after China Mobile’s 500 million subscriber base when its first handset hits authorized stores later this week. [via Engadget]
