Dell introduces new Dell Venue, 4.1 Inch Android 2.2 touchscreen smartphone

Dell Venue Dell Venue Shipping February 18 for $499 Unlocked


Hot on the heels of their new 7 inch Streak Tablet, the Dell Venue is now on sale direct from Dell's US Store, unlocked for US$499.99 and shipping on February 18. There are no indications of an Australian release date yet.

The Venue cuts the QWERTY keyboard of its Windows phone cousin, the Venue Pro, but runs Android 2.2, has a 4.1-inch WVGA touchscreen protected with Gorilla Glass, an 8 megapixel camera, 1 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G, and Bluetooth 2.1.


It will be running its own skinned version of Android, known as Stage. Dell is touting this as perfect for entertainment, with streaming radio stations and downloading books and music. It will also come with access to the Android Market, so you can add more options. With Android 2.3 already under development and Dell's history of running older versions of the Android OS, we can only hope they keep this model updated.
