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.

While it's an official device, heading to T-Mobile USA in the coming weeks, there's still some questions lingering about the name of the device.

The Motorola R2-D2 Droid 2 was released just yesterday, but it looks like all of those Star Wars fans that weren't able to get their hands on it aren't being left completely in the dark.

There's a lot of question marks surrounding the Samsung Fascinate.

HTC Merge Spotted on Global Certification Forum, Gets Approved

As usual, there's plenty of different handsets the Merge could be. It makes it hard to guess when we know about plenty of other devices heading to the market soon enough, and there's just one out there, without any real defining feature list or images, that alludes us. This month, it's the Merge. Manufactured by HTC, with a model number ADR6325, the Merge is a mystery wrapped in an enigma.

Google Uses Honeycomb for Next Android Codename, After Gingerbread

Google's usage of codenames in the vein of tasty treats isn't new -- it's been this way since the beginning. And generally, they tend to leak out well before the software even gets shown off.
