After giving up their PocketPersonal Computer (PC) business several years ago Dell are ready for a come back but this time they will try to conquer a much wider field. Now it's as official as it gets: Dell have just confirmed their plans to produce a range of smartphones under the brand name Dell Mini 3. Judging on Dell's netbooks naming convention, which takes after the classy screen size, it's a fine guess that the recent Dell smartphones will all have their sreens around 3 inches.

And when it comes to Dell future smartphones, we have to resort to guessing, as the company did not announce any hardware specs whatsoever. Those will be announced "...when devices are available in stores." Dell marketing obviously can't acquire over their computer marketing strategies (much like Acer and their newbie attempts, as well).

Anyway, rumors on Dell smartphones have been circulating for the past 2 years or so and a few months back the Dell Mini 3i was even sighted during an event organized by China Mobile. Back then Dell called it only "a proof of concept" but today it just can't acquire any more real than that.

The first company across the globe to acquire the Dell Mini 3 is world's largest mobile operator, namely China Mobile. Their version of Dell Mini 3 will run the OPhone Operating System (OS) (basically that's the well-known Android Operating System (OS) with some minor customizations) and is expected to become available sometime this month.

The Chinese version however won't have 3G and Wi-Fi. The first 3G-enabled Dell Mini 3 will be offered in the Claro network in Brazil. If you don't live on the American continent, chances are you might have never heard of Claro, but they are actually part of America Móvil, the largest mobile phone network in America. The Dell Mini 3 will be available in Claro by the discontinue of the year.

So as it turns out, Dell Mini 3 is actually a name for full range of devices srecent in different configurations and Operating System (OS) options. Unfortunately, Dell refused to unveil more information on the exact specifications. All we know is that they will all feature touchscreens and will be designed around the Android OS.
