Dell Venue

Android is Pentagon certified, Joint Chiefs discover Angry Birds

A few months back the Department of Defense certified its first Android device, the now (and then) discontinued Dell Streak 5. Now it looks like the rest of the armed forces are getting in on the action. The Pentagon has certified Android 2.2 Froyo for use on all Department of Defense projects, and the Dell Venue has been approved for use in military applications. Classified information and proxy access can now be granted to that model of phone. It's likely that they'll get them in bulk from Dell.

Dell Venue Review

Because Dell has positioned this phone as a no-nonsense Android 2.2 Froyo smartphone that doesn't pretend to have the absolute best in any one category of features, instead aiming for a group of people who trust the brand, trust the feel, and trust the look of the phone, so too will this review be short and sweet. This is one of the newest Android phones made by Dell 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.
