Dell Lightning Windows Phone 7 Portrait Slider Full Details; Release Date for Q4 2010

April 22, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The upcoming Dell Lightning is out there in the open, and the most significant aspect about the new handset is that it will arrive as a Windows Phone 7 device. Though we haven’t any word on when exactly Windows Phone 7 would be the norm, we have enough reasons to believe that Dell is touting the OS with pride.

Aesthetically designed, the Windows Phone 7 portrait slider Lightning would come powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor.

Sporting  AT&T and T-Mobile USA 3G bands, the phone’s other features include a 5 megapixel auto focus camera placed at the rear and a 4.1-inch WVGA OLED display. On the storage front is a slot for 1GB of flash memory, along side 512MB RAM. Dell is also believed to have made provision for an additional 8GB of storage. Significantly enough, this storage element is on an 8GB MicroSD card

The upcoming Dell Lightning would also come spruced up with GPS, an accelerometer, integrated FM radio, and a compass. What we fail to comprehend is that the Dell Lightning is being touted as a Flash supporting device, though Microsoft has made it known to all of us that Windows Phone 7 will not support Flash Player at least in the initial days. We guess Dell might be looking at options for users to upgrade to LTE by the Q4 of 2011. With so much of specs now known, we are anxious to know what kind of a price tag would be Dell attaching to the handset. Going by the available details, we should be able to see the Dell Lightning by the fourth quarter of this year.
