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:

More Dell Thunder live pictures


Looks like the owner of the Dell Thunder Android device we have seen earlier has been busy handing out blurry pictures of the handsets (looks likehe has 2 of them) to a couple of sites today. Nothing really new here other than the fact that these pictures are not as crappy as the previous ones..I frankly don’t find the device to be really attractive when compared to the current smartphone on the market.

Dell Thunder Android handset in the wild


The Dell Thunder Android handset that was part of the gigantic leak a few months ago is apparently being tested in the wild. The Thunder is currently running Android 2.1 without any Dell customization on top and features a 4.1″ AMOLED screen according to the leak. The device is also capable of recording 720P videos with its 8Mpix camera (and LED). I’m also guessing that it packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon clocked at 1GHz. Check out the blurry video after the break:

Dell Thunder Android phone leaked

After the lightning….comes the thunder. It’s leak time today: The Dell Thunder is the company’s upcoming Android based smartphone expected in Q4 2001. Not much is known about the specs (other than the 4.1″ OLED screen), but from the looks of it I would guess that it has basically the same hardware has the Dell Lightning minus the hardware keyboard. The deivie is also said to include a Hullu application to watch on-demand video (via Flash 10.1) and will also feature the Swype onscreen keyboard.
