Dell & Alienware Android Device ?

Postby plusminus » Sun Feb 17, 2008 2:02 pm

Hello Community,

dialaphone.co.uk is creating rumors about a potential upcoming Android Device. They say that Dell would probably be announcing such a device on the Mobile World Congress 2008 in Barcelona.

As we reported earlier, Dell’s Anne Camden, mentioned that Dell had no plan to participate at Mobile World Congress. The company also denied the speculation of introducing an Android based phone.

dialaphone.co.uk is also announcing:
"So here are the first pictures of the Alienware mobile phone!" :lol:

I'm sorry but:
  1. the author of the dialaphone.co.uk -Article has not a single clue of what Android is...
  2. The "first pictures of the Alienware mobile phone" are complete nonsense :!:
    • It's look may be fancy but not useful at all
    • You want to run Android on a ~100x100px screen... have fun with that.

So let's see if any serious news-site can bring of some facts. We do not think so.

That alien-style look is definately too geeky for
general acceptance IMHO. But looks funny at
least.

:lol: I remember a big news site writing that the ""HTC Magnum"" would have an 11" screen. Next to that text they had the screenshot of the guy holding that TFT-Screen large as a baby (22") :roll:
