Summary: This is one of the newest Android phones made by Dell called Dell Venue and it’s got an in-your-face 4.1-inch display that’s certainly not the biggest in the business – but it is covered with curved Gorilla Glass. This trend of slightly unique features continues through the whole of the device.
Excerpt: Dell did a fantastic job with the Dell Venue Pro that runs Windows Phone 7 , so it’s no wonder that we had high hopes for the Android-powered Dell Venue. Once known as the Thunder, the Dell Venue is an Android 2.2 Froyo smartphone which inherits the same high build quality from its Windows Phone 7 counterpart. It’s also utilizing Dell’s proprietary Stage UI, made famous by the Dell Streak.
Conclusion: Honestly, one of the best things about the Dell Venue is the fact that it’s one of those handsets you don’t quite expect to see in the wild – thus, it’s able to stand out more amongst the usual pack of smartphones out there. Looking into it more, Dell has done a magnificent job with its design, and much like its Windows Phone 7 sibling, every inch of it seeps with elegance – though, it doesn’t quite hit the high marks in all categories with its performance.

Excerpt: Today we're going hands-on with Dell's latest Android smartphone: the Venue. I apologize for my voice being even more nasally than usual - I've been a bit under the weather. To put it briefly, the Venue is actually a pretty good phone - it's just a little... old, at this point. Still, it has made me a believer that Dell, a computer manufacturer, can make a good piece of smartphone hardware (and actually some pretty decent custom software as well, ala Stage UI.
Excerpt: The Dell Venue is the sister companion to the Dell Venue Pro. Unlike the Dell Venue Pro, the Dell Venue runs Android 2.2 with Dell Stage UI. Currently only available in Asia, does the Dell Venue have what it takes to compete in the ultra competitive U...
Excerpt: Just a few years ago, it would have been a stretch to think Dell would venture into the smartphone business. With the exception of a few stand-outs, Dell has always been fairly conservative with their products and had never really strayed too far from the PC and its associated peripherals and accessories, although they did make a few slick PDAs back in their heyday.
Pros: Fast 1 GHz processor, Gorgeous 4.1-inch AMOLED touchscreen, Unlocked on AT&T, microSD expansion slot
Cons: A bit on the heavy side, Pixel density is a little low, Stuck on Android 2.2 for now
Excerpt: Vocês leram a respeito do Dell Lightning , certo? O Dell Thunder tem um design semelhante, mas abre mão do teclado deslizante para manter-se em um design full-touch com o mesmo display de 4,1 polegadas.
