Dell Aero Android Smartphone Available Today

Dell has today launched the new Dell Aero smartphone. The Aero is an Android based smartphone that has a 3.5 inch screen.

The phone it’s self costs either $299.99 without a contract or $99.99 with a two year agreement with AT&T [T].

The press release makes no mention of which version of Android it is running, but unfortunately we found out that it’s just Android 1.5 for some bizarre reason that we have yet to figure out. There is no mention of any Android 2.1 or 2.2 update in the near future either.

If you can live with an OS that’s over a year old with plenty of updates in between then read on.

Dell Aero, one of the lightest multi-touch 3.5-inch Google Android-based smartphones in the U.S., is designed to deliver a powerful, flexible, and entertaining experience in a stylish and compact design. Packed with today’s popular features, the Dell Aero will ship with Quick Office, Facebook with integrated calendar and contacts, Twitter and additional applications by Google, including YouTube and Android Market.
