Dell reportedly prepping the China-only mini 3i smartphone; launching alongside Lenovo O1 and Dopod A6188?

Dell smartphone rumors are starting to heat up as new info firms up the possibility that Dell is getting ready to announce its smarthphone to the Chinese market via China Mobile. The purported phone will be called the mini 3i and will be part of the Android-driven Ophone Open Mobile Systems (OMS) platform. The Dell mini 3i is expected to be released later this month along with two other Ophones, the Lenovo O1 and the Dopod A6188. In a bit of a twist, the Lenovo O1 is expected to be the only OMS phone to be 3G-capable, sporting support for the newer TD-SCDMA network. The Dell and Dopod offerings will reportedly only support the older 2G GSM network. The veracity of this information is questionable, completely unverified and may be another one of those wild Chinese rumors but the source is pretty reputable so hopefully we’ll hear something official this week.

Verizon Touch Diamond2, HTC Mega get detailed; Dopod Tachi render gets updated

Some good news for Windows Mobile fans hit the interwebs this morning as two Verizon-bound WinMo handsets get spec’d and a third shows itself in a slightly updated render. First up, the CDMA variant of HTC’s Touch Diamond2, codenamed Whitestone. Pictured above at the far left, specs are looking like this:

  • Windows Mobile 6.1
  • Qualcomm 7600 processor @ 528MHz
  • 512MB ROM/256MB RAM
  • 3.6-inch WVGA touchscreen
  • 5 megapixel autofocus camera/Anti-handshaking
  • gpsOne (aGPS and full GPS)
  • GSM/CDMA World phone

Rumor has it the Diamond2 will be making its way to Big Red sometime in September or October and we can only hope the release version sheds that crazy mesh pattern from the case. Hit the jump for details on the HTC Mega and a new render of the Tachi.
