Dell Smoke

And as if on cue, here comes the next phone from the major Dell leak currently under way. The Smoke brings a front-facing QWERTY keyboard to Android -- something a number of us have been clamoring for for quite some time now. But that comes along with a 2.8-inch QVGA display. Trade-offs, ya' know. There's also a 5MP camera, Qualcomm MSM7230 processor at 800MHz, Flash 10.1 support and 512MB of ROM/256MB of RAM. That's all packed into a 10.5mm-thick body with 1170mAh battery. This guy wet your whistle any? [Engadget]

Dell Smoke smolders in an non-traditional Android form factor

Same here. If there is anything blackberry did right, it was the curve's form factor. This is definitely one to keep your eye on.

I just thought of something....did anyone ever manage to get Android on the Blackjack II? I know they got it on a lot of WinMo phones, and it should be a nice way to test out this form factor with Android, well, minus the whole touch screen.


Finally. Been waiting for this form factor FOREVER it seems. Moving from a centro, with this style keyboard, its pretty freakin hard to imagine life without a keyboard, or one of those huge landscape ones.
