The Dell Aero is a budget Android smartphone which was announced by Dell in March 2010. Today, Dell has officially launched the Dell Aero on AT&T’s network in the US.
The Dell Aero is now available on AT&T for $99 with a 2 year contract and $299 without contract. It is a nice budget Android option with great hardware; I have only one complaint about the Dell Aero — it still runs Android 1.5 (Cupcake). Cheaper alternatives like the HTC Wildfire and the Samsung Galaxy 3 also run Android 2.1 now, which makes the Aero outdated. Dell hasn’t announced any updates to Android 2.1 for the Aero, so I would probably not go for it.
