The other day I was reading a great roundup of projected and wanted features in the upcoming Android 2.2 Froyo release, over at AndroidAndMe. The author, Taylor Wimberly, was going over what he thought was likely to be included next and then mentioned something about the Nexus One that instantly intrigued me. He said:

I spoke with Google’s Eric Tseng during CES and he told me there were many secrets left in the Nexus One that we would discover later.

Dell Leaks Continue: Streak 5 And Aero Get Fully Spec'ed

Looks like this is the last set of Android related Dell leaks that Engadget miraculously dug up yesterday.

Dell Aero

The first leak shines some light on the Dell Aero - Dell's upcoming budget Android phone. Previously, the only information we had about this phone was the 3.5" screen, a 5MP camera, and a June release date.

Because of the budget tag, we were now not surprised to find out that the phone would be running a 624MHz Marvell CPU, which is the same CPU the sometimes laggy Spring Design Alex eReader has inside.

More Details On Dell's "Streak 7" Tablet Emerge - Official Name: "Looking Glass"

Dell has completely stolen the news spotlight today with a flood of PR, carefully leaked (so I think) to Engadget.

We now have more details about a device that used to be named "Streak 7" - Dell's 7" Android tablet leaked to Engadget a week ago. The previous leak mentioned that Dell's tablet line with an already announced 5" version called Streak 5 would be augmented by 2 more devices - a 7" and a 10" Streaks.

The Leaks Continue – Meet The Dell Flash And The Dell Smoke

Engadget’s leaked a few more Dell phones that just might steal the just announced Thunder’s… well, thunder (that’s the last one, I swear). This time we’re focusing on two handsets that are confirmed to run Froyo and mix things up bit when it comes to form factor.

Dell’s Smoke is a qwerty candybar with an 800MHz CPU, a 5MP autofocus camera, 14.4Mbps HSPA and dual-mic noise cancelling technology. It also packs Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1+ EDR, much to the surprise of no one.

Dell Sets The Stage With Their New Android UI – Will Include Flash... And Run Froyo?

Finally, a decent Android skin that isn’t HTC’s Sense UI. Along with a few details about Dell’s newest superphones, we’ve been treated with plenty of information about their custom Android skin, dubbed Stage UI.

It seems that, initially at least, this new UI will be exclusive to Dell’s newly leaked trio of high-end Android phones, the Thunder, the Flash, and the Smoke. At this point there’s a bit of confusion as to which version of Android the Stage UI will be based on, with Engadget reporting that the Thunder will run Flash and Android 2.1 and the other two phones set to run Froyo.

Break Out Those Drool Buckets: Dell Brings The Thunder

Holy Android sexiness Batman. Engadget has just busted out some glorious details and renders of the upcoming Dell Thunder – an Android superphone that certainly lives up to the title.

I was a bit taken aback by the announcement – as far as we knew, the only Android phones in Dell’s pipeline were the previously announced Streak and Aero, both of which are interesting, but not nearly as appealing as the Thunder.

Another day, another Android tablet that aims to compete with Apple's iPad in one way or another.
