Dell Venue clears the FCC with AT&T and T-Mobile bands

The Android version of the Dell Venue Pro we told you about is back once again – this time spotted on the FCC’s site with support for AT&T and T-Mobile. Gone is the “Pro” part of the name which means this version will be a touch-only device and not feature the slide-out QWERTY keyboard of the original Windows Phone 7 version.

At this point it’s unclear if either carrier will actually pick up the Dell Venue, but we have our money on AT&T who was the only carrier to support the Dell Streak. If some of you remember, we also saw a T-Mobile version of the Dell Streak on the FCC site (and there were even test versions available) but the carrier decided not to launch the Android 1.6 tablet.

For an idea of what you might get with the Dell Venue, check out Sean’s hands-on post over at Engadget. He played with a prototype phone which was going by the name Dell Thunder, but this is the same design that is believed to be used for the Venue. Hopefully Dell took the time and upgraded that first-gen Snapdragon to one of the second-gen models that includes the Adreno 205 GPU.

What do you guys think? Would you hand over your hard-earned money to Dell to try out one of their Android devices? Or do we need to wait and see how they provide software support after they release a product?
