Dell is working to keep its new Mini 3 smartphone device closely associated with Dell's computers, calling it "The world's most compact Dell" directly on its packaging. The Dell Mini 3 is a 3.5" capacitive touchscreen device, and will be first available in China and Brazil. Dell has shown off the device in a number of places this year, but has stayed mostly silent about it in English speaking world. Now, company has confirmed the Mini 3's release, but added it’ll announce with each carrier individually. Before the end of year, America Movil subsidiary Claro will bring Dell Mini 3 to Brazil. That version’ll also be Android-based, but it’ll have a different interface from China Mobile's and it will also support 3G. "Our entry into the smartphone category is a logical extension of Dell's consumer product evolution over the past two years," Ron Garriques, President of Dell Global Consumer Group.
