Dell Thunder makes noise in early video leak

August 12, 2010 | by Andrew Kameka



Remember that series of leaks related to Dell’s upcoming Android phones? Now is your chance to finally get a look at it in a form other than rendered graphics.

A tipster got his hands on the device in its very, very early stages. So early that it’s running stock Android instead of the custom OS skin/version that we’re almost sure to see once this thing comes to market.

The device looks an awful lot like a Windows Phone 7 creation to me, but perhaps that’s because Dell has opted to make its Thunder and Lightning (WinPhone7) have more of a resemblance than just catchy names. The Thunder is running Android 2.1 (for now), has an 8 megapixel camera with LED Flash, 720p video recording, and a 4.1-inch OLED touchscreen.

Head over to for a short video of the phone.
