Computer maker Dell should bring to the market during the ongoing year a nice range of new smartphones, running either under Google's Android operating system or under Microsoft's Windows Phone platform, if a recently leaked roadmap from the company is to be believed.Apparently, Dell's entire mobile roadmap leaked into the wild, and the aforementioned smartphones, along with a series of tablet PCs, most of which would be based on Google's Android OS, can be seen listed there.
When it comes to future Android phones from Dell, two names show up on the list, Hancock and Millennium.
The first of them should be released with a dual-core application processor inside, complemented by a 4 inch qHD (960 x 640 pixel) display, and 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, and a 1.3MP camera on the front.
As for Dell Millennium, it is listed with a dual-core application processor too, along with a 4.3-inch touchscreen display that would deliver a qHD 960 x 540 pixel resolution, an 8MP photo shooter (with 1080p video) with a VGA front camera, and DLNA support.
Both smartphones should run under Google's Android Ice-Cream OS flavor, which was said to include both Gingerbread and Honeycomb features.
These devices would be complemented by a Windows Phone handset called Wrigley, boasting a 1GHz application processor, a 4-inch WVGA touchscreen, and 8-megapixel photo snapper with 720p video recording capabilities.
According to the said roadmap, this phone would run under Windows Phone 7 “Next Gen,” which would confirm the release of a major upgrade for Microsoft's mobile platform.
As for the tablets that Dell might bring to shelves, we can count Dell Gallo, a Honeycomb tablet, Dell Sterling, also running Honeycomb, as well as Dell Opus One and Dell Silver Oak, also based on Android, which made it to the headlines before. Two Windows-based tablets are also present on the list, Rosemount and Peju.
All in all, it seems that Dell indeed has nice plans for the mobile space for this year. However, keep in mind that these are only rumored devices, and that they might not pan out in the end.
