Dell surprised everyone with the Venue Pro. The Streak was boring, but the Venue Pro was one of the most exciting Androidsmartphones yet. It looked like everything the latest generation of BlackBerries had failed to be, topped off with a 4.1" AMOLEDdisplay.
When a WiFi bug was sighted right after the Venue Pro's launch, I didn't see it as cause for concern. Glitches happen. Then some models shipped with "Engineering Sample" batteries. Dell said they were just mislabelled, and that was cool too.
And now, just as the supply issues have started to smooth out, the Dell replacement Venue Pros with working WiFirefuse to recognize SIM cards. One problem after another has followed the launch of this smartphone. As nice as the VP is, careful buyers should look towards another WP7 option. If you are set on the Pro, make certain your model WORKS before you take it out of the store.
Or you can wait for the Android Venue Pro and hope it rolls out as a functional device. At least one of these issues is from WP7, and not the Pro itself. The SIM glitch, crappy radios and shortages are all on Dell, though.

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
