Dell Windows 7 phone appears, 4″ OLED slider

The parade of “leaked” phones to Gizmodo and Engadget is getting ridiculous. Do they have a deal with PR Newswire?

Anyway, the latest instalment is a batch of images and specs for upcoming Dell phones. Engadget’s touting it as “the mother of all Dell leaks” but it’s still no iPhone bar edition.

It does give an apparent early peek at several Android phones and the “Lightning” Windows Phone 7 coming to market in the fourth quarter, if Engadget’s info is correct.

Lightning has the standard 1 gig processor, FM radio and Flash support, plus a 4.1-inch OLED display that slides up to reveal a qwerty keypad. The info said a 3G Lightning is coming to AT&T and T-Mobile first and an LTE version will be available in fourth quarter 2011 (which seems like a long wait for 4G …).
