Yes, Dell is bringing its Android-based Mini 3i smartphone to the West and has performed some welcome nip and tucks. Now dubbed the Dell 'Aero' the handset is claimed to be the lightest Android phone to date - though with this being the case, as usual Dell has not revealed exactly how much the Aero weighs so we can check its facts.
So aside from this mysterious resistance to gravity what else do we know? Well for a start it carries over the 3.5in display with a 640 x 360 pixel resolution, ups the camera seen on the Mini 3i from three to 5MP, has 3G, GPS and WiFi and while Dell also refuses to just leave Android alone, the skin looks tolerable with native Picasa, Flickr, Facebook, YouTube and Twitpic integration.
When will we get it in the UK/Europe? At this stage we simply don't know, but I suspect it will largely depend on how network negotiations go. Grey imports do seem likely though, so if you're interested in owning the lightest Android phone of unknown weight then keep your eyes peeled over the coming weeks.
