WP7, Android Ice Cream 3.x and details
According to what WPCentral and Andoid Central are claiming to be leaked Dell roadmaps it looks like Dell is planning to get pretty serious when it comes to smartphone market. If it turns our to be true, Dell might be looking at the biggest leak that we've seen so far and probably won't be quite happy with it. The tablet roadmap has also been detailed but we'll leave that one for a different article.

The full list includes a total of four different smartphone models running on either Windows Phone 7 or the new Android 3.x that will apparently be known as Ice Cream. The first, scheduled for mid-April, is the Venue Pro, running on an unnamed 1GHz CPU, with an 8MP camera, HSDPA and Windows Phone 7 OS. Next in line is the Wrigley, yet another Windows 7 Phone smartphone although the slide does state that it will be a Windows Phone 7 "next-gen" OS. This one will apparently feature a slide out QWERTY keyboard, and is also based on a 1GHz CPU, has a 4" 800x480 (WVGA) screen, and 8MP camera with 720p support. This one is scheduled for Q3 2011.

Q4 2011 and Q1 2012 bring two models, the Hancock and Millennium, both planned to appear running Android 3.x, codenamed Ice Cream. The Hancock features a 4-inch qHD screen, dual-core CPU, two cameras (8MP and 1.3MP) and will be capable of 1080p video recording. The last, but not least is the Millennium with dual-core CPU, 4.3-inch qHD screen two cameras, DLNA, 1080p, dual-core CPU and the Android Ice Cream OS.

It will be an interesting year for Dell, at least if these slides turn out to be true. More here.
