Android-Powered Dell Venue Hits FCC

Earlier today we posted that the Dell Venue Pro, a Windows Phone 7 handset had passed the FCC with AWS bands and would be launching soon. Now, the FCC has passed another Dell handset which also sports AWS bands (hooray) and is named the Dell Venue (model code: V03B002). The Dell Venue (aka Dell Thunder) is basically exactly the same (hardware wise) as the Windows Phone 7 powered Dell Venue Pro, but the Venue is running the Android OS. Before you start jumping for joy, even though the handset has AWS bands does not mean it is a lock for T-Mobile. Take the Dell Streak dilemma for example. Leave your thoughts in the comments!

    Wow. Will this have the 8MP camera?
    Very nice form factor.

    I’ve been waiting for this phone…….Now I’ll wait to see if it’s going to be on t-mobiles network before considering the mytouch 4g more seriously.

    Looks good. Be curious to hear more details about this device.

  • alex

    If this is running stock android i will not get the mytouch…

  • JaylanPHNX

    Unless they’ve bumped up specs from last reports, it’s not quite up to the myTouch4G’s snuff. It’s not likely to have as much RAM and I don’t think (I could be wrong) it has the next-gen Snapdragon the myTouch4G has. Does the FCC filing say if it supports HSPA+? If it doesn’t, no deal.

    So, does this have that slider keyboard like the pro or no? The Engadget pics do not seem to indicate so. Kind of a bummer if no because I am in the market for a phone with a keyboard other than the G2. It’s good to have options, ya know?

    • danbutter

      Yeah doesn’t look like there will be a keyboard.
      I’d take the lightning with android on it too.
      Not gonna be an early adopter with WP7 unless of course XDA can manage to get android working really well on it pretty quickly.

    tmobile already posted on facebook that they confirmed the venue pro with windows phone

  • now_onTMO

    wow.. lots of nice phone coming to tmobile! nice..

    hmmm everybody happy now? LOL..

    i love my vibrant, but somehow i feel like my phone is outdated already with all these new phones coming out.. lol, im stuck with it till next year, :) it’s cool i love it a lot anyway and it’s a great phone. but this phone looks nice and and next year when i upgrade, im sure there’d be better and better phones available by then.

    tmobile is now better than ATT when it comes to phone selections, even my female co-worker loves my vibrant compared to her iphone4.. lol , but the iphone fits her better ehehe
