Dell Thunder specs - smaller Dell Streak sibling detailed

The Dell Thunder, a more pocketable take on the Dell Streak, has been popped up online again. It showed up on a leaked Dell roadmap earlier this year but this time it’s in the form of an honest-to-goodness snap of the Android phone. If the size made you stop short of snapping up the Dell Streak, this slimmed down slate could be the one you’ve been waiting for…

The Dell Thunder sat beside the Windows Phone 7 Dell Lightning and the larger Dell Looking Glass slate in a leaked presentation that emerged back in April. The fact that it’s been caught on camera seems to suggest that all three products should be headed our way in the next few months.

The Dell Thunder prototype that’s been shown off today runs Android 2.1 and comes packing a 800 x 840 resolution 4.1in touchscreen, an 8MP camera with an LED flash and 720p video recording.

The Dell Streak Froyo update was recently delayed with a jump to 2.1 in September in its place. The Dell Thunder may also come with a slight delay before it jumps to Android 2.2 with whispers suggesting it’ll come packing a new custom Dell interface on top of the standard Google OS.

While the 4.1in screen is still pretty hefty (putting it in the same weight class as the HTC Evo 4G), the Dell Thunder could definitely be an appealing slimmed-down option for Dell Streak admirers. It’ll be nice to have another option in the search for the best Android phone.

Hop into the comments and let us know what you make of the Dell Thunder. Do you think it’ll go down a storm? Will it be a wash out? Should we use less weather puns?
