I was pretty excited to see the much rumored Dell Mini 3i launch with China Mobile last week…except it never happened. At an event in China, at which the world’s largest wireless carrier was showing off its Android-based Open Mobile System (OMS), Dell was on-hand. Unfortunately the only piece of hardware with a Dell logo on it was a prototype, black candybar mobile phone that ran on 2G GSM.
Dell spokesperson Matt Parretta told Crave that, “Dell was there supporting China Mobile as a development partner. We did not confirm or announce anything.” Damn.
