New Dell Phones: Dell Lighting, Thunder, Flash & Smoke Dell leaked a bunch of information to the world yesterday about their upcoming phones. They’re releasing four pretty sweet phones soon, and these are called the Dell Lighting, Dell Thunder, Dell Flash, and Dell Smoke. The Dell Lighting has Windows phone 7 as the OS and has a 4.1 inch WVGA OLED display, a 1ghz snapdragon processor, a 5 megapixel autofocus camera, 512 mbs of RAM, 1GB of flash memory, and a 8gb non-user replaceable MicroSD. The Dell Thunder has Android as the OS, and has the same 4.1 inch WVGA OLED display, possibly a 1ghz snapdrgon processor, but an 8 megapixel autofocus camera. The Dell Flash has a 3.5 inch WVGA LCD display with a Qualcomm 800 mhz msm7230 processor, and runs Android Froyo, aka Android 2.2, which is unreleased at the moment. The Dell Smoke also runs Android Froyo (Android 2.2), has a 2.8 inch QVGA display, a 5 megapixel camera, and a Qualcomm 800 mhz msm7230 processor as well.

The folks over at Engadget have a pair of Dell Thunder smartphone prototypes and they’ve shared some details about the specifications. The new Dell Thunder will be equipped with a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor with Qualcomm Adreno graphics, 4.1-inch touch-screen display, 512 MB RAM, 512 MB ROM, 8 megapixel camera with LED flash, and maybe a front-facing VGA camera.
The two devices had different operating systems, with one running a developer build of Android 1.6 and the other running Android 2.1. That made a differences to their resolutions of 800 x 600 and the other 1,280 x 768.
The team also found a CDMA test suite, indicating the potential for a Verizon or Sprint model, and one unit used AT&T’s HSPA 3G bands while the other had T-Mobile’s AWS 3G bands.

Dell Thunder Android OS Smartphone Appears In Leaked Pictures The Dell Thunder is one of a group of upcoming Android OS-based smartphones from Dell. Word of it first leaked out in the spring, and now a series of pictures of a prototype unit have appeared on the Web.Related Posts:
digg_url = ‘http://digg.com/gadgets/Dell_s_4_1_inch_AMOLED_Android_handset_caught_on_video’; Did it get hot in here all of a sudden or is it just this extremely sexy prototype we’re looking at? Yes, the Dell Thunder that boomed onto your internet screens back in April is back, and this time we’ve got video of it too. Our tipster reports an 8 megapixel camera with LED flash on the back — which includes 720p video capture capabilities — along with a removable 1,400mAh battery. His prototype’s running vanilla Android 2.1 at present, though the final units can probably be expected to ship with Dell’s custom skin on top. Screen resolution is purportedly 800 x 480, though judging by that 7 x 4 icon grid up there and our tipster’s own experience, it could be even higher; the 4.1-inch display looks to indeed be of the OLED variety, as our earlier leak had indicated. All that and it has the looks of a pocket-sized supercar. Enough teasing, skip past the break for the video.

Firefox personas, if you didn’t know, allow you to theme the browser without munging up the placement of buttons or other browser elements. It was originally an extension, but Mozilla baked the features of the Personas extension directly into version 3.6 of the browser. Neat, except that updates to the personas feature were then tied irrevocably to browser updates. And Mozilla has a few restrictions on how personas operate — like, you can only have 8 of them at a time, and you can only get them from the personas showcase. Brand Thunder has just released their own extension called Personas Interactive that leapfrogs Mozilla’s offering.
The benefits of Personas Interactive may not be immediately apparent to you, as they weren’t to me. I asked Brand Thunder to articulate the goods for me:
- Firefox locked users into only eight Personas, whereas users of themes often like to sample and change their themes. I suspect when you have something this visually present, there’s a degree of fatigue that occurs and users like to see something else after a while.
- Some Personas themes don’t work well with bookmark toolbars and other links because of the forced text shadows which can make the text very hard to read. We’d made text shadows an option so users can use the best method for their chosen theme.
- Users who love themes often have one installed, but they had to be in Default mode in order to use Personas. We’ve removed that restriction and Personas will now work with any Firefox theme.
- Mac users can also prevent the titlebar from changing color, which was another default setting in Personas.
- We give any site the ability to preview and install Personas. The only place to get a Persona was from the Personas Gallery. Designers had to submit their designs and users could only preview and install on the Personas Gallery site. We’ve removed that restriction. A developer/designer can now host and manage their own Personas Gallery giving them better control over managing and maintaining their community.
- Web sites can offer site specific Personas allowing the browser theme to change when a user is visiting that web site, but goes away when they leave the site.
- Designers have the full use of CSS3 backgrounds capabilities in Personas including multiple images, repeating, sizing, positioning and more. This provides much more design freedom and ensures design integrity even in very wide browser resolutions. Personas are typically a fixed size and you can exceed the theme if you have a wide monitor.
- The designer has the ability to turn off text shadows in individual Personas. This is another way to ensure design integrity.
- Another designer tweak is specifying a background color without affecting the titlebar on Mac.
There’s some more details on Mike Kaply’s blog.

Stage aesthetics all contain a common trend. Generally, the equipment should be seen as little as possible, leading to pretty much every guitar amplifier in existence being black. Orange Amplifiers said, “To hell with all that nonsense” and proceeded to create some of the most visually offensive and sonically powerful amps on the market. Their latest release, the Thunder 30, should start coming out into the wild sometime this spring.
What you get are four EL84 class A power valves pumping out a total of 30 watts. A new addition to Oranges is the twin channel setup. Your standard clean channel and a dedicated overdrive/distortion channel with shape control. They also threw in an FX loop not found on previous models.
Configurations include the head alone, or in a front loaded 1×12 combo. We’ll have a full review for you guys as soon as we get our hands on one.
