Will Dell's Smart Phone Get Lost In The Android Crowd?

Posted by: Peter Burrows on November 13, 2009

I blogged this morning over at Byte of the Apple about Dell’s debut of its long-awaited smart phone over in China, given that the release comes on the heels of Apple’s not-so-successful launch of the iPhone in China. I suggested that since the Chinese clearly don’t want to pay a lot for their iPhones, maybe Dell can carve out some decent volume if the Mini3 is priced for the mass market. Trouble is, as Jared Newman at PCWorld points out, Dell is being coy about details such as price.

Here’s what Dell is saying, beyond the press release, on its Direct2Dell blog.
