A Dell Venue smartphone is shipping somewhere this month, but it's not the Pro and it's not the United States.

Still sporting a 4.1-inch AMOLED touch screen, what separates the Venue from the Venue Pro is the absence of slide-out QWERTY keyboard. The operating system has also changed with Dell swapping out Windows Phone 7 for Android 2.2.

The Dell Venue is launching in South Korea this month with the help of local carrier KT. The price point is set at a whopping 700,000 KRW ($606). A release timeline for other countries has not been revealed yet.
