Dell Venue: A quality Android smartphone you may not have considered

Dell used to make some fantastic PDAs, but then had a rough bit of luck with smartphones. They then released the Dell Venue Pro Windows Phone 7 device, my personal favorite, and followed up with the similar Dell Venue Android device.

The Dell Venue is available as an unlocked device in both T-Mobile and AT&T 3G versions. The Dell Venue runs Android 2.2 with some Dell custom home screen elements.

Check out ZDNet Smartphones & Cell Phones blog for all the details and a video of the Dell Venue.

The Dell Venue Pro (top) is slightly thicker than the Venue due to its slide-down QWERTY keyboard.

The bottom of these two devices looks nearly the same with soft touch material and the microUSB port.

As you can see these are both rather large devices and with the slide-down QWERTY keyboard the Venue Pro is a rather huge device.
