TechCrunch writes that Dell will be coming out with a branded smartphone, called the Ophone mini3i, in China in the next few days. Supposedly it will sport a similar form factor as the iPhone , will run Android, and won’t include a physical keyboard.
Specs aside, Dell has really outdone themselves with the naming of this as of yet un-announced device. The Ophone mini3i sounds more like a robot or a futuristic virus than the name of a smartphone.
“Hey, what’s wrong with your computer?”
“I’m not sure. One second I’m downloading some music, and the next thing you know, I have the Ophone mini3i virus!”
“Damn, that’s rough”
Back in March we wrote that Dell’s first efforts to create a smartphone where hindered when Dell prototypes failed to impress carriers looking for an eye-catching design to take on the iPhone. Then, in mid-June, the following photo surfaced purporting to be a leaked, and blurry, shot of Dell’s upcoming smartphone. If that doesn’t scream Ophone mini3i, then I don’t know what does!
