Dell Lightning strikes with Windows Phone 7

Not particularly impressed with the Dell Mini 3i? Don't really want anything to do with the Dell Streak series?

The SSD market is quite small at the moment, this is due to the high cost per gigabyte, making it more of a high-end addon for performance-sensitive devices such as servers, high-end netbooks, laptops, smartbooks, and gaming computers.
