Dell Shows Promise in Its Smartphone Forecast

The company hasn’t shown the same zeal and gusto that other smartphone developers have displayed, but Dell is finally in the game with some new, impressive devices. Details about a Windows Phone 7 smartphone and four Google Android smartphones are spreading like wildfire in the media. Many people thought Dell would never compete in the smartphone industry after receiving scrutiny over the years for not developing a smartphone in the U.S. Now the company has the devices to claim some significant market share.

Probably the most impressive of all the new devices is the Dell Lightning. This Windows Phone 7 device is expected to rock a 4.1 inch WVGA OLED display, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, both AT&T and T-Mobile 3G compatibility, 1GB of flash, 5 megapixel camera, 8GB of storage on an internal microSD card, GPS and FM radio. The massive display screen slides up to reveal a sleek QWERTY keyboard, much like the Palm Pre Plus. This device is also rumored to be upgradeable to LTE in 2011.
