Dell were playing the Mini 5 pretty close to their chest back at CES 2010, but the company was a little more open with the MID at MobileFocus this week.  We grabbed some hands-on time, and we have to say we're impressed; the Mini 5 makes the Archos 5 Internet Tablet feel clunky, and while it's just a little too large to be comfortably used as a smartphone, with full phone functionality you could certainly use it as such in a pinch.  Still, the Mini 5 really shines when it comes to media consumption and internet access.
