Round Rock, Texas - Dell launched
its second Android-based mobile device in the U.S., offering the Dell Aero 3G
smartphone direct and soon through
AT&T's website.

aeroAero's price is $99.99 with
two-year AT&T contract and $299 without.

The introduction follows the
availability earlier this month of Dell's $299 Android-based Streak,
which it calls a tablet because of its large 5-inch screen. The Streak,
however, can be used like any Android-based smartphone to make cellular voice
calls. The device retails direct from Dell for $299.

The 3.67-ounce handset, based on
the Android 1.5 OS, is promoted at one of the lightest Android smartphones in
the U.S. with 3.5-inch multi-touch touchscreen. It's also slim, measuring 0.46
inches by 4.8 inches by 2.28 inches.

The phone operates in 3.6Mbps 3G
HSDPA model in AT&T's 850/1900MHz network and foreign 2.1GHz 3G networks.
It features 640 by 360 display, 624MHz Marvell processor, GPS, assisted GPS,
Adoble FlashLite, HD video playback, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g, Bluetooth Class 2 EDR,
removable 2GB MicroSD card, card slot supporting 32GB cards, wired stereo
headset and 3.5mm-to-mini-USB adapter.

It is available preloaded with Quick
Office, Facebook with integrated calendar and contacts, Twitter and additional
applications by Google, including YouTube and Android Market. Other features
include 5-megapixel camera with 8x zoom, flash, dedicated camera key, editing
capabilities and access to AT&T's hot spot network with a qualifying
cellular plan.
