While word came out earlier in the week that the Dell Venue Pro could be getting an Android version, an FCC filing is pegging a non-Pro version in the form of a rebranded Dell Thunder. As you may recall, the Dell Thunder is an Android phone carrying the same design and spec features of the Venue Pro minus a slide-out portrait QWERTY keyboard. Notably, you still get the 4.1-inch curved-glass AMOLED touchscreen.
A Bluetooth SIG listing further confirms that the phone should be going by the name Dell Venue when it sees its release. Now the question remains, does the Dell Venue get a Windows Phone 7 counterpart as the Venue Pro is rumored to get an Android counterpart? That is an interesting marketing approach, allowing customers to choose between the same hardware based on OS.
