Dell discontinues Venue and Venue Pro in the US - read the full textDell had to retire the Streak last year owing to poor sales of the device but it seems that misfortune was being shared by its stablemates as well. Dell has now discontinued the sales of the Android-based Venue and the Windows Phone-based Venue Pro in the US. What's interesting to know,...

For some reason, PC manufacturers don't seem to have much luck with smartphones or tablets:

Micorsoft with their Kin phones...
HP with their pathetic takeover of Palm and WebOS...
Lenovo, with their "LePhone" no one's ever heard of...

And this is not even including the dozens of mundane phones from Acer, Asus, Toshiba and so on.

Dell people are stupiiiid How do you release phone that doesnt have US 3G band (venue pro)!!!!!! For example venue pro doesnt have 850Mhz band for att 3g. I mean right there you are done. They deserved this for their stupidity.

Maybe they would've seen much more success had they released the devices in more than just Best Buy and 1 Major Carrier.

dell was just to late with to little(at least in holland)
we only got the streak and the venue pro don't think they went that good cause can't find them in the stores anymore.

They should release new ones on android. wp won't really work at the moment.
The designs where really nice in my opinion

Good riddance I say. The probably assumed they would be the kings of the hill because of their PC history. In the smartphone game, loyalty counts and Dell has done nothing to inspire it. :-P

They must have reduced the Streak price at least by 50$ and they must told openly that they surely will Froyo update and also should have give Gingerbread, and it's actually such a great device. They must launch a new one with same body design with quiet face lift powering a Dual Core or Quad Core.
