AT&T to jump on the Android bandwagon

AT&T may be the target of numerous attack ads from Verizon, but the company still has something that the other mobile service providers can't “officially” have: the iPhone. Love it or hate it, the iPhone has revolutionized the way we look at smartphones and every and their grandma is looking to get on the full-featured, app store-havin' bandwagon.

When it comes to contenders to the iPhone in the smartphone market, Android-based phones seem to have the best shot at winning over customers. Verizon already has two strong entries with the Motorola Droid and Droid Eris. T-Mobile already has the G1, myTouch 3G and the new Google Nexus One. AT&T has been sitting on the sidelines when it comes to Android-based phones and seemed content with providing users with endless streams of BlackBerries and iPhones – until now.

Dell's Lionel Menchaca announced today that Dell will be offering its Android-based Mini 3 smartphone to U.S. customers via AT&T's network. The Mini 3 definitely won't win a specs war with the likes of the Droid or Nexus One, and it isn't exactly a looker either -- but it's a decent start for AT&T.

According to PC World, the smartphone has a 3.5" 360x640 display, Bluetooth, a miniSD slot, and a 3.2MP webcam. All other specs are up in the air at this point.

According to Dell, the Mini 3 will be available on AT&T's network in the first half of 2010.
