Dell Roadmap Gives Hints of New Hardware
"To wit: the Dell Wrigley, due out in July 2011 with a 1GHz processor, a 4" WVGA screen, an 8 megapixel camera on the back capable of 720p video recording. What's more, the Wrigley is branded as "Windows Phone 7 Next Gen," which more than implies that a) a big Windows Phone update will come before then and b) the Wrigley will ship with it."
It looks like we won't have to wait too much longer for the second wave of WP7 phones to come our way. It's good to see Dell wasn't turned off of the Windows Phone 7 OS after the Venue Pro's problem-ridden launch. The specs look good but it is disappointing to see a lack of a dual-core processor, 1080p recording and front facing camera. In terms of OS, it is unclear what Dell means by "Windows Phone 7 Next Gen." Do they mean NoDo or Mango? If its NoDo, where are the phones that'll be released with Mango? If it is Mango, why are the specs so low in comparison to other phones that will be released later this year? Either way it is good to see Dell staying in the game.
