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
  • GPS/A-GPS
  • 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 dell.com/mobile. 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.
