Dell launches its first smartphone…failure?

As more and more smartphones have been coming out on to the cellphone market, Dell
decided it was their turn to step into the contest to make the greatest smartphone yet (or so they think).

Supposed to be launched earlier this year, Dell delayed the launch till now. The phone is
called the Aero and will be sold for $99.99 with a two-year contract from AT&T. The phone itself runs on
Android 1.2 which is a pretty outdated software as of now.

The phone has a 3.5 inch touch screen display and runs on a 624MHz processor which is no competition to the 1GHz chip used in many of the new smartphones being made. The Aero will have a 5 – megapixel camera
and also has Wi-Fi and GPS and of course, you can download apps from the Android
marketplace.

In my opinion, the phone is an OK device but it won’t last long or at all in the smartphone
crowd. To me, the only appealing detail about the phone is the cheap price of it.
