Dell Venue pro all set!
February 3rd, 2011 by Dipak Sarda

If the reports are to be believed, the most hotly anticipated smart phone from Dell – Venue Pro Smart phone running Windows Phone 7 would be available to UK users by Wednesday. This has been listed in the latest update from online retailer Expansys.

The site lists the price of this much-delayed (yet highly anticipated) SIM-free slider handset, which was among the first wave of phones running Microsoft’s new operating system, at £439.99.

The appeal of this smart phone would definitely be with the business users. The large 4.1 inch Amoled display made of toughened Gorilla glass, 1GHz Qualcomm 8250 SnapDragon processor, 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity and a full Office Mobile suite pre-loaded makes it an attractive option for the business users.

However, it certainly isn’t with a downside. The handset has a small 8GB on-board memory and may be a little awkward, especially when fully extended by sliding out the QWERTY keyboard.

Having already delayed the launch in the U.K., Dell would be hoping for a smoother passage this time. The previous issues of battery and Wi-Fi, as Dell expects, need to be a thing of the past for Venue Pro’s success story this time.

The company has already noted that the problems stemmed from two errors in the manufacturing of the smart phones. Multiple users reported that handsets returned an error message when they tried to access protected Wireless networks. Subsequently, Dell attributed this to a “Software glitch” and added that certain handsets contain batteries which were wrongly labelled as ‘engineering sample’ units.

According to latest analyst research reports, Windows Phone 7 will be the fastest growing platform in 2011 thanks to its “unique and very desirable take on the smart phone user interface”.

But, it has a mountain to climb given the runaway success of the iPhone and Android platforms. The market is awaiting with bated breath the release and the further future of Venue Pro. We will keep you posted!
