Dell, following up the recent release of the Streak, has followed it up by releasing the Aero. With a 3.5" touchscreen, Dell considers this their first "true" wireless handset as the Streak is considered a "mobile Internet device with voice capabilities."

According to Dell spokesman Matthew Paretta, the Aero will hit shelves with a heavily customized version of Android 1.5 and has no exact timetable on when or if it would be upgraded to Android 2.2. This is a bit of a bummer with so many devices shipping with newer OS versions.

 

Handwriting recognition, Microsoft Exchange e-mail capabilities, a Quick Office mobile productivity application, a search manager, and a Facebook application are some of the custom features included with the Aero.

 

The price is a pretty wallet-friendly $99 USD with atwo year AT&T contract and $299 for the unlocked version.
