RUMOUR: Dell working on Android-based mobile internet device


A report in the Wall Street Journal suggests that Dell plans to release a mobile internet device as well as the much touted Dell smartphone.

The mobile internet device will, like the supposed smartphone, be based on Android and will run via an ARM-based chip. Two Dell insiders have claimed that the MID is slightly larger than the iPod Touch. It won’t have any phone capabilities.

The mobile internet device may even be released sometime in 2009 according to one of the insiders. There’s nothing official from Dell as of yet so we’ll just have to wait and see.
