"The information we’ve received is extremely thin," writes Michael Arrington, who notes the accurate history of his anonymous source.
There have been several reports of Dell launching a phone in the Chinese market in recent months, but not much beyond that basic information.
But there certainly is speculation. Arrington writes:
There is also wide speculation on the operating system, but we’re guessing it’s Android. Dell has also been working with Google on an Android-powered tablet computer in recent months. But in April Reuters had a report that Dell may be creating a proprietary operating system with China-based software maker Red Office.
What we’ve heard on the hardware: iPhone-like, touchscreen, no physical keyboard.
