Of all the Windows Phone 7 devices that are available now, it seems the Dell Venue Pro has been the most unattainable. It’s not because the Venue Pro has been sold out or outrageously popular, but you can’t just waltz into a T-Mobile store and pick one up. Most folks I know have been searching Microsoft stores across the nation, high and low, and shipments of the smartphone have been sporadic. Still, that isn’t stopping Dell from putting out a video that pushes the device’s sexy design and features.
The Venue Pro is the only Windows Phone 7 device that has a physical portrait QWERTY keyboard, and it felt like the most hefty of the bunch. It gives you the sense that it’s one svelte and solid device. Here are some of the specs I mentioned during my first hands-on experience with the device:
The Venue Pro, as you might have seen earlier, sports 4.1-inch display, 5MP camera and a 1GHz processor. As far as memory goes, the Dell Venue Pro will be packing 8GB of internal storage.
You can also nab the 16GB version right now for $149 shipping some time around December 14 if you’re looking to nab one with a two-year contract. It’s not such a bad deal if you’re looking to grab a new Windows Phone 7 device and having a physical keyboard is either appealing or a deal-breaker for you. While I wasn’t the biggest fan of the keyboard, being spoiled by BlackBerry, it felt like something that I could easily get used to after a week or two of consistent use.
Dell’s latest video probably shows off a little more of what Windows Phone 7 can do versus the highlights of the Venue Pro itself, but that makes sense since your average consumer probably hasn’t had much time to familiarize themselves with the new platform just yet. Quite frankly, Dell did a pretty good job of putting this little ad together.
