No Skype for Verizon Galaxy Tab at launch

A leaked Verizon training guide for the Samsung Galaxy Tab has revealed that the tablet will lack Skype support at launch, together with the carrier's V Cast and NFL Mobile apps.  The news, passed on by an Engadget tipster, comes as a disappointment, considering Verizon has blocked voice call functionality on their slate. The scrap of hope is in Verizon's wording, which suggests the three apps will be absent "at launch"; that implies a subsequent release, hopefully sooner rather than later.  Verizon's version of the Galaxy Tab will go on sale come November 11, priced at $599.99 with an optional contract-free data package.

Dell Venue Pro Coming in Android Flavor in the Future

So, the handsets that would be bringing Windows Phone 7 into the world were announced not too long ago, and out of the plethora of handsets that were uncovered, it was Dell's Venue Pro that got a few more glances. Perhaps it's because the device is a portrait slider, or that it has a beautiful touchscreen display hiding the full physical QWERTY keyboard. Whatever the reason, it's a device that plenty of people want, even if they don't want Windows Phone 7. Good news, then, as apparently Dell has every intention of launching the device in the future, with Android.

Amazon Releases Kindle Sales Report with No Numbers

Say what? Amazon presents a report on sales of the newest generation Kindle (3rd-generation) without actually telling the reader how many it has sold. Apparently this is the status-quo for Amazon, as it makes no big deal of instead comparing its sales to sales of previous Kindles it's had in... what's that? The last three months of 2009? What in the world? On a more understandable note, Amazon reports that it's now selling more Kindle titles than paperback and hardcover books. That's a statistic to remember.
