NEW YORK (AP) -- AT&T says Dell's first smart phone for the U.S. market will be called the "Aero."
The carrier said Monday it will sell the phone soon. The phone is based on Dell Inc.'s Mini 3 phone, which is already sold in China and Brazil, but has a custom-made user interface designed by AT&T Inc. and Dell.
The phone will run Google Inc.'s Android software. The price and the specific launch date were not announced. AT&T has previously said it would carry Dell's phone.
Compaq, now part of Hewlett-Packard Co., produced a line of handheld PCs named "Aero" a decade ago, when they competed with the Dell "Axim" line.
