Quick Picks: Today’s Mobile News in a Flash

We have tons of new updates for you all and since bringing in information through walls of text is never really a good thing, here is a simple, easy to digest recap of all the tasty bits of news that have popped up in the past 24 hours.

Dell’s Venue Pro is officially on pre-order. Frankly, at 500 Pounds, this handset is a definitive keeper. The only thing buyers should look out for is the fact that this makes use of a portrait oriented slider keyboard –so be sure that you do not mind the Torch inspired form factor before hopping into this latest Windows Phone 7 handset.

A new lawsuit is heading straight for HTC, Motorola, Samsung and Sony Ericsson. According to sources, a “digital security firm” is suing all the Android phone makers. While the exact details are not confirmed, it is most likely to be a patent infringement charge. Rumors state that the lawsuit involves the use of Java card technology.

The BlackBerry Bold 9780 smart phone has been a pretty elusive device. There is no doubt that the handset is one of the most much awaited RIM devices (since the slight departure of the Torch from the traditional BB form factor). To further push the hype of the device, several leaked images of the 9780 in action have been spread about just recently.

The Nokia N8 has arrived on Virgin Media and the MVNO is not just offering the handset to subscribers, they are also offering special bonuses as well. A new Virgin Media Player app exclusive to the Nokia N8 has been made –it will be preinstalled on all N8 devices sold under VM and the app will be available as a separate download for all non-VM N8 users. With SE and Samsung abandoning the Symbian OS, the N8 needs to succeed in order for Symbian to survive.
