We see the Dell Aero's software and kind of wish we hadn't ...

Remember the Dell Aero Android smartphone? The one we were allowed to fondle but not turn on at CTIA? (And the one that, yes, can't run unsigned apps?) Well, the guys at Engadget managed to get their hands on a live one. And from what we've seen, they can have it.

We're not at all against putting a good skin on top of Android, but what Josh shows us doesn't look anything like a good skin on top of Android -- especially that keyboard. Basically it's some rather sleek (and almost sexy hardware), with a UI that makes us wonder (yet again) why some companies can't leave well enough alone. [Engadget]
