Dell is one of the world’s largest PC and laptop manufacturers. Dell has been selling a few low to medium end handsets in the Chinese market. But now it looks like Dell will be striking the whole world with the Dell Lightning. The Dell Lightning is a WP7 based phone and features a 4.1 inch OLED display. It is not known whether the display is an AMOLED or a Super AMOLED. We hope its the latter, because of its better sunlight legibility.
The CPU is the 1Ghz monster from Qualcomm the Snapdragon. The Lightning has a portrait slider form factor and features a full QWERTY keyboard. The phone has 512MB of RAM and 1Gb of ROM. It also packs in 8gb of internal storage. The device also features a 5MP camera, and can playback DivX files natively.
Flash and Silverlight are also supported by the device. The usual GPS, FM Radio, Accelerometer are all present. The launch date of the device is pegged at Q4, of this year. It is also believed that the device will be getting a hardware upgrade to support LTE networks, in Q4 of 2011.
