After so much speculation and rumor, it's hard to believe that Dell's first modern cellphone
is ready to launch. And while we've already seen the official press release announcing the Mini 3 for Brazil and China
, today we get a followup release with a bit more detail. As expected, the Chinese Mini 3i variant is quadband GSM/EDGE only (no 3G) and packs a 3.5-inch nHD, 640x360 touchscreen display just like that found on Nokia's N97. The 58.35 x 122 x 11.7-mm OPhone
will ship in "Red Passion" and "Oiled Bronze" colors packing Bluetooth, a 3 megapixel auto-focus camera with flash and video capture mode, microSD slot, and GPS with pre-loaded maps. And in case you're wondering why China first
, that's easy: Dell's going after China Mobile's 500 million subscriber base when its first handset hits authorized stores later this week.
