Dell Venue Pro - Stylish, But Bulky

 

As we saw with the HTC HD7, there were some issues with the OS. The Dell Venue Pro however may have just set a benchmark where Windows Phone 7 devices are concerned. Even though I didn't think it is possible, the Venue Pro does manage to showcase a...

At a market price of Rs. 34,900, this may not be the most ideal phone to purchase. With the size and weight of the Dell Venue Pro being a major issue there is also no proper weight distribution when the keyboard slides out. The Pro has some great...

Dell's Big, Brawny Windows Phone Means Business

 

Smartphone designers generally follow the same credo as ballerinas and runway models -- you can never be too thin. But Dell has taken a different

One of the most well-appointed WinMo phones to date. Tough Gorilla Glass screen takes all kinds of abuse. Comfortable, idiot-simple QWERTY keypad. Snappy boot time

Not exactly pocket-friendly. Craptastic camera performance in low-light settings. Hand-offs between apps and the web are still jarring. Slightly curved display is a smudge magnet. Trickle of WinMo apps limits potential

Dell Venue Pro (unlocked, Add a Bluetooth for .99 with purchase.)

 

At the Windows Phone 7 launch event in October 2010, the Dell Venue Pro was one of the standout models with its portrait slider design and extra-large display and size. We've had to wait a long time since then to get one in for review and so have...

The Dell Venue Pro features an attractive design with a large, sharp display and comfortable keyboard. The smartphone runs smoothly on a 1GHz Snapdragon processor

The smartphone is large and heavy. It doesn't support the T-Mobile HSPA+ network. Call and speakerphone quality could be better

The Dell Venue Pro is a well-built and smooth-running Windows Phone 7 device, but its large size will be a turnoff for many.

Dell Venue Pro

 

Microsoft seemed ready to take over the mobile world with the launch of Windows Phone 7, but so far we've seen only a handful of phones. The Dell Venue Pro ($100 with a two-year contract from T-Mobile) is an affordable yet powerful WP7 offering. It...

Gorgeous AMOLED display ; Good camera

Keyboard is a bit cramped ; Windows Phone 7 is missing some key features

The Dell Venue Pro won't win any beauty contests, but it is an affordable and powerful phone with an excellent display.

Dell Venue Pro (T-Mobile)

 

A gorgeous industrial design and solid keyboard make this Windows Phone 7 device worth considering.

It's safe to say that the $99 Dell Venue Pro is the company's best smart phone yet from a design standpoint. While hefty, the solid and luxuriously built hardware--and especially the AMOLED screen--nicely complements the highly polished (but still...

Dell Venue Pro (T-Mobile)

 

Slide the screen up with a satisfying thunk, and you'll see the nearly perfect four-row QWERTY keyboard. The keys are small, but backlit, well-shaped, clicky, and properly separated from the body of the phone.

Gorgeous build. Terrific keyboard. Huge screen. Windows Phone 7 has excellent media, gaming, and productivity support

Fluctuating reception. Short battery life. No HSPA+. Poor photo quality in low light

The Dell Venue Pro is a big, powerful Windows Phone 7 device, but it has some battery and reception issues.

Dell Venue Pro Review

 

As we've already witnessed with the LG Quantum, there might be some annoyances in trying to use Windows Phone 7 devices packing on a landscape style keyboard, for now. However, the Dell Venue Pro seeks to remedy that issue as it presents itself as...

My Week with a Dell Venue Pro

 

While the Dell Venue Pro has been out and about for a number of months now, we don't hear much about it in the press or in advertisements. There was a lot of initial buzz about the new look of Dell's first venture into Windows Phone 7 and the...

Large, bright screen with portrait sliding keyboard (no need to rotate the unit) ; Solidly built

Screen pixels seem to have 'space' between them, creating a pixelated look to some images ; Weight distribution is affected by sliding out the keyboard -- makes one-handed operation difficult ; Bluetooth seems to have difficulty re-establishing...

Ye Quickie Dell Venue Pro Review

 

Ever since the Dell Venue Pro was first announced, I couldn't help wanting to check it out. Running Windows Phone 7, it packs a massive AMOLED Display, and a...

The Dell Venue Pro is Dell's second attempt at trying to capture the smartphone market. The Dell Venue Pro is Dell's attempt to show the world what they're truly capable of. This Dell Venue Pro review delves into the design, display, hardware,...

There aren't a lot of reviews that would rank a smartphone as 'Excellent' but the Dell Venue Pro has all the right parts to push it to that level. The phone, when seen in person is just absolutely beautiful. The 4.1 inch screen is one of the larger...

Product Specifications

In addition to the QWERTY keypad, the Dell Venue Pro comes with Xbox LIVE and pre-loaded work/life applications that make everything easier and more beautiful on its sharp, bright and responsive 4.1-inch AMOLED touch display, which features rugged Gorilla Glass for exceptional durability. Windows Phone 7 Live Tiles keep priorities in focus, and the Venue Pro’s single-button access delivers everything you care about including Bing for search, Xbox LIVE for games, and Zune for music and video.
