Dell foremost to release Windows Phone 7

Dell is planning to be the first producer of Windows Phone 7 device called Dell Lightning, a WP7 Smartphone. The phone would feature a 4.1-inch OLED touch screen display, 9GB of storage, a WP7 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM.

With Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 platform around the corner, we expect the first devices based on the OS to be powerful beasts, and Dell Lightning, a leaked Windows Phone 7 portrait slider phone, confirms our expectations.

It packs a (now quite standard) 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, a WVGA 4.1-inch OLED display, 512 MB of RAM as well as 1GB of flash memory, a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and an 8-GB microSD memory card.

The other gizmos that we all expect from a smartphone nowadays — HSDPA, GPS, accelerometer, compass, FM radio — are also present, and Flash support will be that little something you can wave in front of your iPhone-bearing friends. Last but not least, the full qwerty keyboard will definitely make typing easier, but the phone will probably not be light (its exact weight is absent from the leaked specifications).

This device claims to bring the latest feature that is not ever seen earlier which is a full QWERTY keyboard under a slider. This new thing may not be liked by the Smartphone lovers but still dell keeps the fingers crossed.

Apart from all basic connectivity features, Dell Lightning also offers Wi-Fi 802.11n protocol for connectivity. The Dell Lightning is expected to launch in the second-half of the next year.
