We just swung on by the Dell booth here at MWC and wanted to report back on our quick encounter with the Dell Venue — which is basically the Venue Pro with Android and without a QWERTY slider. To quickly go over the raw specs: 1GHz QSD 8250 processor, 4.1-inch AMOLED display, 512MB RAM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, 8 megapixel rear-facing camera, 1400mAh battery, and micro-SD card slot. The device itself is a tad on the thick side — 12.9mm — but feels extremely solid in the hand. The chrome accents on the bezel, like those on the Venue Pro, are a nice touch and give the phone a little flair. The device is running Android 2.2 with Dell’s Stage UI and, much to our chagrin, Dell declined to comment on if/when the device would be updated to Android 2.3. The phone is pretty much exactly what you expect it to be. The device has pretty average specs and behaves like most other Android devices of its ilk. The lighting was terrible, but that didn’t stop us from snapping a few images for you to look over. Hit up our gallery and let us know what you think.
