A rumor that has been bobbing its head in and out of water a lot lately is the eventual birth of an Android-based smartphone coming down the pipe from Dell. While we still have nothing concrete from the manufacturer itself, it appears as though a Dell phone could be coming very soon — within days, even. A source close to Techcrunch says the phone will either be announced or launched this week in China. The same source states that the handset will feature a full touchscreen form factor and it will lack a physical keypad, lining up perfectly with our render. Android is still the speculated OS, as it has been for months, though there’s no word on what if any modifications Dell has made to the UI. It will be interesting to see how this plays out but let’s just hope the Texas-based company does a better job on its phones than it did in the now-defunct PDA segment.
