We had a Thunder and Lightning, so it makes sense that we would have a flash also. No not the Adobe Flash we are use to hearing about in the news, but the Dell Flash. If you read earlier today about Google’s internal testing of the next generation Android 2.2 named Froyo, then this seems to fit together nicely. Dell is planning on the Flash for 2011. Interestingly enough Dell has the idea to carve the phone out a slice of “curved glass”. The end result will be a 11mm thick with a 3.5-inch WVGA LCD screen. That has got to be a sight for sore eyes! They are also planning a packing it with performance, but at the same time making it somewhat affordable. Compatible with AT&T’s 3G bands it will support HSPA+ speeds of 14.4Mbps down and 5.6Mbps upstream. Not bad.
The Dell Flash will be running Qualcomm’s next generation lineup of mid-range processor cores. The 800MHz Qualcomm MSM7230 will offer high-end performance in a mid-range package. It will also give the Dell Flash HD video out capabilities, obviously you will need Adobe Flash 10.1 for that to work. The Froyo powered smartphone will have 512MB of ROM and 512MB of RAM, with a MicroSD slot. The rest of the regular features are WiFi, TV-out, 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth 3.0, and GPS. 2011 is a long time away, hopefully Dell wont change this too much.
