Dell leaks show ‘iPhone killers’ Windows Phone 7 ‘Lightning’ and Google Android ‘Thunder’

invisibleSHIELD case for iPadEngadget is the recipient of Dell “leaks” that highlight, among other devices, the Dell “Lightning” and “Thunder” smartphones. Both devices are said to ship “around Q4 of this year.”

The “Lighting” is to run Microsoft’s Windows 7 Phone and is said to offer “1GHz QSD8250 Snapdragon processor, WVGA 4.1-inch OLED display, AT&T and T-Mobile 3G, five megapixel autofocus camera, 1GB of flash with 512MB RAM plus 8GB of storage on a MicroSD card (non-user-replaceable, we’re assuming), GPS, accelerometer, compass, FM radio, and full Flash support… [however] Microsoft’s told us Flash won’t make it into the OS initially,” Nilay Patel reports for Engadget.

  1. Please, why all this ‘killer this’, ‘killer that’ malarkey?, why cant we all just get along?
    And while were here what’s with these macho names, how about Daisy and Kitty, now isnt that much more pleasant for all concerned and of course then when they arent what they claim you can avoid all the embarrassment.


  2. Once I was swimming s Turtle Creek
    Man them snappers all around my feet
    Sure was hard swimming ‘cross that thing
    With both hand holding my ding a ling

    Snap Dragon !

  3. I love these iphone killers, everytime one of these pretenders comes up with a new phone apple upgrades the one i’ve aready got. that is the real difference between apple and all the rest, apple can support its product after launch day

    by the way anyone seen cars cause thats all i hear when they say lightning and thunder

  4. @ Neilkachu, you may have something there. Like calling the biggest guy in the gang “Tiny,” why not a rocket-powered super motorcycle called the “Daisy,” or a tricked-out smartphone named “String Phone.”
