Dell Venue Pro Windows Phone 7 Announced

Just a couple of days ago, Microsoft [MSFT] officially launched Windows Phone 7. The new operating system was also listed along side 9 smartphones that would be launching in various parts of the world.

The Dell Venue Pro is one of those devices. It features a slide down QWERTY keyboard. This particular phone was originally spotted as the Dell Lightning, but for various reasons, switched to being called the Venue Pro at launch.

The Venue Pro has a large 4.1 inch AMOLED display. On the back a 5 megapixel camera can be found. Inside, it runs a 1GHz Snapdragon processor.

The Venue Pro will be launched in the US exclusively on the T-Mobile network on or around the 8th November. In the UK, the same device is expected a little earlier on October 21.

The launch will potentially being Dell back to the smartphone market. Already this year the company launched the Dell Streak which is a five inch Android tablet/phone. Adding a Windows Phone 7 device with a fairly large screen will add to their presence.

We’ll get more details closer to launch and let you know where it will be available in the UK as the initial launch announcement only had the Venue Pro listed for the US.

    Oh really? Dell Venue Pro was announced? What took you so long? I could have read that piece of news days ago – in the newspaper of the local old people’s home. Your blog is useless. Your contribution is zero.

    • Charles,
      Thanks for the comment, but you failed to notice that the news item was written “days ago”. Not sure why you thought it was written today when the date is clearly marked.
