Dell Mini 5 to use Android 2.x on launch

updated 04:55 pm EST, Mon February 15, 2010

Dell Mini 5 said to get latest Android OS

When the promised Dell Mini 5 tablet ships later this year, it will run on a newer version of the Android OS than the 1.6 build prototypes of the device have been running on thus far, according to a Monday Engadget report. While which exact build will be preloaded has not been disclosed, Dell staff did indicate it will have Flash support, likely the latest 10.1 version of the software. Depending on when the smartbook PC ships, this could mean Android 2.0, 2.1 or the upcoming Froyo.

Other known specs of the Mini 5 include a 5-inch touchscreen, 5-megapixel camera and an expected 1GHz Snapdragon CPU along with 3G data network access, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Like the release date, pricing is unknown, although CEO Michael Dell recently gave the timeframe of a "couple months."
