One of our trusty ninjas just blessed us with the following information: first up, real pictures of Dell’s Chinese market smartphone code-named Benzine. Just as TechCrunch reported, we’ve been told the handset is “launch ready.” Here are the full specifications for this Dell smartphone:

  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE class 12
  • Size: 68.6cc
  • 103g grams weight
  • Dimensions: 58 x 122 x 11.7mm
  • Display: 3.5″ nHD 640×360 LCD, 18-bit, 262K colors
  • OTA capable
  • Microsoft Exchange support
  • Google, AIM, Yahoo and MSN IM support
  • 3 megapixel auto-focus, flash, 8x digital zoom camera with 30fps video shooting mode, built in photo editor
  • USB 2.0, Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR
  • A-GPS
  • On-screen QWERTY keyboard, hardwriting recognition, multi touch UI
  • MicroSD slot

If that wasn’t enough, our source told us that the Motorola Android phone headed to Verizon isn’t called the “Shules” it’s the SHOLES (arguing over code-names, are we?) and it’s a 13.7mm slider. Better still, we were told to mark our calendars for a late September launch of the Motorola Morrison on T-Mobile.

Happy Android day, guys!
