Dell reportedly to release Android version of the Venue Pro

Word on the street today is that Dell is working on an Android version of the Venue Pro, the Windows Phone 7 vertical slider coming on T-Mobile. That's all well and good, and what's one more Android smartphone, when it comes down to it?

But I was at the Windows Phone 7 launch and had my hands all over the Venue Pro. And while it's a pretty cool phone, it's also pretty top-heavy when the keyboard's open. And speaking of the keyboard, it's pretty small and pretty cramped. So let's not get too excited just yet. And then there's the bad taste in our mouths left over from the Streak launching with Android 1.6 and the Aero launching with Android 1.5. So pardon us if we're not over the moon. But, still, we'd rather see it than not. [PC World]
