First announced at CTIA 2010, the Dell Aero is the company's first smartphone for the U.S. market. The Android phone is available from AT&T and Dell for $99.99 with a two-year contract.

Dell's entry in the smartphone world is a disappointing one. The Aero ships with Android 1.5 and is sluggish compared with today's latest devices.

The only thing the Dell Aero has going for it is a slim and lightweight design.

One of the frustrating things about the Aero is that it doesn't have the standard Android shortcuts below the screen. Instead, they've been relocated to the sides of the phone. Here on the left side you get a home/back button sandwiched between the power key and Mini-USB port.

On the right, you get the equivalent of the menu button. The placement of these controls isn't very user-friendly. Even worse, there's no dedicated search key.

On back, you'll find the smartphone's 5-megapixel camera and flash.

Though we could make out the objects in the photo, colors were quite drab.
