We have just received an invite for a Dell press conference on November 10, where the company will introduce “India specific mobile phones.” Currently, the Dell Streak is available in India for approximately Rs 35,000.

We believe that the press conference could be about the launch of the ‘Dell XCD28’ (an internal codename, we assume), which we are told would be a 3G-enabled Android 2.1 smartphone priced at Rs 10,900.

Check out the specs of the phone:

  • Dimensions:  102 x 55 x 14.5 mm

    Dell to launch smartphone in India later this year

    21 May

    Dell, one of the world’s leading laptop and PC vendor, has announced its plans to introduce a smartphone in India later this year. According to the WSJ, Dell will introduce one smartphone in India apart from a tablet device in Europe and more smartphones in China this year. Dell, which is the world’s third largest personal computer brand by sales, is betting on Android as its platform of choice, a strategy not very different from Motorola. The PC vendor will compete with HP, which recently acquired Palm for $1.2 billion and aims to use its webOS platform for a range of smartphones, Internet tablet devices and even web-connected printers.
