The reviews on the Venue have been pretty positive, as the build quality is high, with a sleek look that make it a stylish handset.  No word from the blog if the unit is going to be subsidized and sold on the AT&T or T-Mo sites.  We will update if we get that information in.

    I’m guessing this is a GSM phone. I wonder if this means that I can use this phone overseas by signing up for service in various countries and if so will At & T and T- Mobile carriers provide U.S.A. service for this phone without a contract. Or am I still locked into using At& T or T-Mobile and paying for international rates when I travel?
