Techcrunck says that Dell is about to enter the Chinese smartphone market with its own super-secret gadget.  Arrington notes:

A source with knowledge of the situation tells us that Dell is launching (or at least announcing) a mobile phone in China in the next day or two.

Dell’s smartphone has been rumored for awhile now with different reports coming every few months.  AT&T wireless CEO Ralph de la Vega even let it slip that they were looking at a device from Dell. 

Apple isn’t asleep at the wheel however.  They are closing in on having a deal with China Unicom, the second largest phone provider in the country of 1.3 Billion potential customers.
