It looks like AT&T is expanding their lineup again.  Already with the prized and coveted iPhone, the new Palm phones from earlier today, and joining the family is a new Android phone called the Dell Aero.  Looks familiar doesn’t it? That’s because it’s basically the same handset as the Dell Mini 3 that has been on sale in China for a little while now and we suspected back in January headed this way. The critical difference – aside from the clear language alterations – is that the phone is branded as the Dell Aero, and no, you won’t be seeing this on 7-11 shelves.

While it seems that the Dell Aero will have the same Android 1.x operating system as many others before it, this handset will be customized with a new look. More specifically: it will “feature a new, beautiful custom user interface developed by Dell and AT&T.”  That sounds so pretty.

Service will be AT&T 3G and the option to connect to 20,000 AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots.  The Aero has a 3.5″ nHD display, 5MP camera, with integrated Flickr, Facebook, Picassa, YouTube and TwitPic sharing right out of the box.  Flash Lite support for streaming audio and video content, a GPS system with hands-free navigation.  Were not sure about a price yet as Dell and AT&T have yet to release it, but the Dell Mini 3, aka, Aero, sure looks like it could be sweet.
