Dell Venue Pro in the UK Delayed Until February Due to Software

The Dell Venue Pro is one of the Windows Phone 7 handsets that, while it hasn't seen a huge adoption rate due to the fact that it hasn't seen an actual "smooth" release since its announcement, is still one of the more popular handsets. It's got the features that people want, and a portrait slider that hides a physical keyboard. But, it looks like the device, as far as those heading to the United Kingdom are concerned anyway, won't be making a timely arrival, either.

Nexus S Boots Ubuntu

There's no doubt at this point that the Nexus S from Samsung, which out of the box runs Android's latest version of Android (2.3), is a versatile device. We've already seen the handset boot up MeeGo, and now the developer is at it again. This time, though, we've got Ubuntu loading up on the device. The XDA developer forum member, stroughtonsmith -- or Steven Troughton-Smith-- has gone through the same method of bringing MeeGo to the device, but focusing his attention on Ubuntu this time around.

Palm Voice for Verizon Appears on Website, Features LTE

An interesting product page has popped up onto the Internet today, featuring a device that looks strikingly similar to a device that's been available for quite some time now (but is no longer). We seem to be looking at a Palm Pre Plus for Verizon, and the specifications for the device listed here do indeed outline the handset in question. However, there's a few key alterations in this product page that have us wondering if a mistake has been made, or if we've caught a glimpse of what we should expect to see at HP's webOS special announcement.
