The rumors about a Dell smartphone were true, Engadget reports the PC vendor showed off the Mini 3i in China. This is a Android-based Open Mobile System (OMS) device with a 3.5" touchscreen with 360 x 640 pixel resolution.
The Mini 3i was on-hand as part of the launch of China Mobile's new Application Platform that offers music, video, and app downloads to mobile phones from Nokia, Samsung, LG, and apparently, Dell. The candybar device lacks WiFi (or Chinese WAPI) and is strictly 2G GSM (no 3G) but does come with a 3 megapixel camera, microSD slot, Bluetooth, and 950mAh battery.
