February 17, 2011, By Leo Xavier

We have the latest leak for all the Dell fans out there. A roadmap leak, which seems to be one of the largest we have ever seen out of Dell, has revealed the company’s plans for the year 2011.

The above image is the smartphone roadmap of Dell for this year, and it appears like the company is aiming to become one of the top players on the handset market this year.

The first info will be good news for all the Venue Pro owners. The leak says that the device will get some “additional features and enhancements” in the month of April.

Then, in the third quarter of the year, Dell will be introducing the Wrigley smartphone. The device appears to be a vertical QWERTY slider and it identifies itself as “Windows Phone 7 Next Gen”.

The handset comes equipped with a 1GHz CPU, a 4-inch display with a resolution of 800 x 480, and an 8 megapixel camera with 720p video recording.

Later in the quarter, Android lovers will be getting a treat, as the company plans to bring out the Dell Hancock which will be running the Android Ice Cream operating system, and will feature a 4-inch qHD screen with dual cameras, dual-core processing and 1080p recording.

And in the fourth quarter, a dual-core multimedia device, the Millennium, will be released. The device will have a 4.3-inch screen and DLNA support, but the front-facing camera is limited to VGA resolution.

Well, that is the smartphone lineup, and it gets even more interesting when it comes to the company’s tablet plans for the year. Check out the leaked tablet roadmap.

Firstly, the Gallo tablet will arrive on the market with Android 3.0 Honeycomb. The company will also be releasing a handwriting update for the Gallo sometime after its release. A Streak 7 update is also scheduled to arrive in the month of July.

Dell’s Rosemount, which will be a 10-inch Windows 7 slate, will be launched in June, with a 1366 x 768 resolution that should allow for native playback of 720p video.

Then, the Sterling Honeycomb tablet, which appears to be a mid-sized one, will arrive sometime in October.

And finally, Dell will be unveiling three new tablets at CES 2012 in January. Two of the tablets, the Opus One and Silver Oak, will run Android Honeycomb, and the Peju will be powered by Windows 8.
