Dell Thunder Hands-on preview

The Engadget boys just got their hands on the two Dell Thunder prototypes we have seen last week and posted a quick hands-on. The most interesting part is that one of the devices apparently features a relatively high-res LCD display (the other one has a regular WVGA LCD). They think that it’s 1280×768 but this is impossible primalary because the maximum display resolution supported by then Qualcomm QSD8x50 Snapdragon is 1280×720. My guess would be WSVGA 1024×600 but I could be wrong. The glass is also slightly curved which seems to be a odd thing especially when is comes to viewing angle performance. The on both device is Android 2.1 and the performances is comparable to any other Snapdragon powered Android handset. Check out the video after the break:

    Yeah that chrome is pretty meh… it really doesn’t get me too excited for the lightning… :/

    Not a bad looking device but what I can’t under stand is the dated OS. I think Dell is off the mark by only soloing with at&t with streak.

    QSD8x50 supports 1280×768 from the internal LVDS output.

    Thanks for the info. But do you really think that this can be a 1280×768 panel ? IIRC Android 2.X doesn’t even support this resolution yet…
