It may sound like a cream for relieving athlete's foot, but Dell's Benzine is much more appealing a purchase. Leaked photos and rumors have been floating around for some time now, but it looks like we're starting to get some pretty solid information - specs, for example. There is still debate over the OS, but considering Dell's affinity for, and allegiance to, Linux, I wouldn't be at all surprized if Android is on board. Check it out:
