Dell's new smartphone

Dell has been said to have a smartphone or two in the works for quite some time now, so it came as no surprise when the Wall Street Journal ran an article over Dell's leap into the industry. The WSJ reports that “people familiar with the matter” are claiming Dell has been working on a full touchscreen as well as a slider. The two prototypes have been tested on the Google Android and Windows Mobile operating systems. The Silicon Alley Insider also chimed in on the matter speculating the new device will be known as the “MePhone” which is hopefully its codename. The Dell phone is expected to be released on Sept. 9, but we are still unsure whether the company with be unveiling the device next month at the Mobile World Congress or later at CTIA.
