Hot New Dell Phone Leaks: Windows Phone 7-Based Lightning

Part of a significant Dell leak yesterday, originally posted on Engadget, the Dell Lightning is a pretty serious piece of Windows Phone 7 hardware. Windows Phone 7 is the rebranded Windows Mobile, which was unveiled at Mobile World Congress in February and will hit the market later this year.

Dell provides consumers a compelling argument in favor of Windows Phone 7. Its phone is a big, bold portrait slider with a 4.1-inch WVGA OLED display. The phone is powered by the latest standard for fast, capable smartphones: a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor. Other specs include 1 GB of flash, 512 MB of RAM, 8 GB of microSD, 5-megapixel camera with autofocus, GPS, accelerometer, compass and FM radio. It features 3G compatibility with T-Mobile and AT&T. Outside of the camera, which could use a boost up to 8 megapixels or so to compete with other new phones like the HTC Evo, that's a pretty top-end list of specs. 

Even better than the current specs are the rumored future specs. According to Engadget's post: "Here's the real kicker, though -- other slides in the deck indicate this thing is getting an upgrade to LTE in Q4 of 2011." So this could be a sneak peak at the second 4G phone that we've seen (the aforementioned, Sprint-based HTC Evo being the first). 

The Lightning is due out in the fourth quarter of this year, a time period that should see a variety of Phone 7 releases.

Never heard of the Star

Never heard of the Star Trek, sounds interesting. Both the Motorola Droid (last year) and HTC Droid Incredible (announced recently) are pretty nice phones in this part of the market.
