Dell Gives AT&T a Miss and Launches the Aero

Dell launched the Aero today. AT&T first announced the Aero back in March, and then we heard nothing about it until recently. I checked AT&T’s site and the Aero isn’t there. This is interesting.

Like the Streak, the Aero is compatible with AT&T. This is what makes it that much more interesting. AT&T is currently showing an email list signup on its Aero page.

Here are the specs:

  • Android 1.6
  • 3.5-inch capacitive multi-touch display
  • Quad-Band GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) and Tri-Band UMTS/HSDPA (850/1900/2100 MHz)
  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth
  • 5MP camera with autofocus, 8x digital zoom, a dedicated camera key, and flash
  • 2GB on board microSD card, expands up to 32GB
  • Full HTML Browser with Adobe Flash Lite
  • Email support for POP, IMAP, Webmail and Microsoft Active Sync

Not a bad little package. If the Streak is too big for you, this may be just your size. You can learn more at You can also check out the video below. Why did Dell launch without AT&T? Who knows? Maybe it will be made available soon. Either way you are required to be an AT&T customer to use it. You can pick up the Aero from Dell’s website for $99 with 2-year contract or $299.99 without.

Update:It took 25 minutes for Dell’s live chat support to find the Android version. That was a long wait.
