    Just came across this, hope it's not a repost.
    From USA TODAY CES Section:




    After months of speculation, No. 2 PC-maker Dell is finally launching a cellphone in the U.S.

    The Mini 3 phone will run Google's Android operating system, and will be offered by AT&T. Details, including pricing and availability, are expected sometime in the next six months, Dell says.

    The Mini 3 has the same name and basic design as the smarphones Dell already sells in China and Brazil through carriers China Mobile and Claro.

    Dell may be a computer giant, but it faces tough competition in the crowded smartphone market. The Mini 3 will have to face off against other manufacturers' Android phones, including the Nexus One Google announced Monday. Well-established phones, such as the BlackBerry and iPhone, may pose an even bigger threat.

    Dell has dabbled in handheld devices before. The company made a line of PDAs, called Axim, in the early 2000s.

    Dell also partners with multiple cellphone companies, including AT&T, Verizon and Sprint, to provide wireless data broadband connections for laptops.

    Does the Mini 3 pose a threat to the iPhone? Tell us in the TechLive forums.
