Would like to know the tentative dates for the update for Dell Venue to Android 2.3. Or even if whether it's in the pipeline for the update.
Any heads up will be appreciated.

XDA is a web site, one of the best for making the best of your Android device. Check out http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1010 for all things Venue, especially the Venue General and Venue Android Development sub-forums. My instructions for updating to Gingerbread can be found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=19968194&postcount=45. If you don't know what ADB is and how to use it, or never flashed an Android device, read the instructions at least 3 times before trying to do anything. Otherwise read them twice. The instructions work fine, but if you don't follow the directions and break your phone, don't come crying to me.
Well, if Dell needs to be taken as a serious contender in the mobile devices category, they would have to provide timely updates to their line of products, The Venue is the first android offering from Dell, a lot will depend on how they support this device. When they come out with a new phone, that phone will be judged on how the previous version was supported. Samsung took a lot of flak for dragging their feet on the Froyo update for the Galaxy S phones, they subsequently suffered negative feedback on the Galaxy S 4G phone. Hope Dell does the right thing and is in the process of updating the Mobile devices to Gingerbread.
Anxiously waiting DELL Venue update (and Streak 7)!
The Streak 5 was the first Android product for DELL. As a former Streak 5 owner and now with 2 Venue Phones (wife and I) and three Streak 7's (me, wife, daughter) I can say that without an update these will be the last DELL products that we purchase (even though we have been happy with them to date).
It seems like every other manufacturer is announcing or currently updating the stable of Android devices and DELL has done nothing. I cannot even find any rumors about DELL updates on forums or other posts.
There are just to many good choices to be waiting around for a company to provide updates and customer service. It is a shame as I think that DELL has some best in class products that are tumbling into obsolescence.
Keeping my fingers crossed.
