    ....Dell "Mini"?

    that thing is humongous : )

    Nice device I would agree. It's too big for my taste though.

    i think it's more of a tablet type instead of a phone. it can make calls, but that's just big. as a tablet, it looks pretty decent. i would actually want it a tad bigger. otherwise, the droid is fine. something in the 6-8" dept would be nice. it probably won't be a called a mini though. beats the maxiPad though. lol

    From the video, it looked like android, and the article says it has android...so I think it's gonna have android. Android is a very open platform for manufacturers, so they can customize it to their needs.
