It seems the OPhone rumours of an imminent Chinese Android device, and Dells plans for one, came together when reports from China suggest Dell is in fact ready to announce a handset "within days". The branded name for this handset is to be "mini3i" - OPhone being the Chinese spin of Android. Since this is for the Chinese market it is unlikely to support 3G, but since China Mobile is the worlds largest carrier by subscribers, that won't worry them too much.

At IFA 2009 in Germany this week LG showed their first Android handset, codenamed "Etna". This was at the Vodafone booth, so it looks like this beauty will be headed our way via that carrier - hopefully way before the holiday season, which will be the case if they meet their launch date of Q409. It looks like a curvier version of the first Android handset, the G1, with beefed up specs in the camera department bringing it to a very desirable 5-meg.

The waiting is over! The first company to bring out a mobile handset, back in 1983, today announced its first Android handset - the Cliq, also to be known as the Dext in Europe when it launches next month. With a strong emphasis on social networking, the Cliq is no slouch when it comes to features either. A 4 row G1-style slide out keyboard, an iPhone busting 5 meg camera and full mobile broadband/WiFi, finished off with a sprinkling of Moto magic in the form of their MotoBlur UI makeover, makes this handset a great contender to launch Motorola back into the glory days of the RAZR.
