Dell Aero to get Kindle for Android app?

MobileCrunch is reporitng that AT&T will soon offer a new Android smartphone called the Dell Aero. Here is what AT&T said:

AT&T also will soon unveil an Android-based smartphone the Dell Aero. This will be Dell’s first smartphone available in the U.S., and will feature a new, beautiful custom user interface developed by Dell and AT&T. To learn more about the Dell Aero, visit

So why am I discussing a smartphone on an ebook blog? Simple. The Aero is a close relative of the Dell's first Android device, the Mini 5. They're almost certainly developed by the same product group.

Do you remember the Mini 5 Kindle app rumor from a couple weeks back? If that rumor is true, then the Aero will almost certainly get the app as well.

BTW, do you remember the Wired article I found where Dell discussed their plans for Android (a family of devices, basically)? Two devices isn't a family, but it's a start.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
