Dell Mini 3i coming to the US ?

According to CrunchGear Dell is planing to bring Android (oPhone) based Mini3i to the US:

The phone, presumably still in its Chinese trade dress, felt “cheap and plasticky, like the Pre,” according our tipster. He believes it will be upgraded for the American market.

The phone has better hardware than the Chinese version and a slightly better camera – probably 5-megapixel over the Chinese 3-megapixel. It is slimmer than the iPhone and the interface mimics, as seen from this photo, the iPhone’s icon-based launcher UI.

Interestingly, Dell is splintering the Android stack and shipping the phone with modified or missing Android libraries, making it a bit harder to program. The tipster reported that some apps won’t work on this version.

Don’t know about you, but to me this has “FAIL” written all over it. Unless the phone is spectacular I don’t see Dell gaining anything from this (bringing it to the US).
