Dell Venue Pro Windows Phone 7 Handset UK Launch Final; Head for Expansys to Pick Yours

January 29, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Here’s something that would excite our readers in the UK! Your wait for the Dell Venue Pro is finally racing to an end. The Dell Venue Pro will finally arrive in the UK in just 5 days. Launch issues in UK had made the company delay the device from the earlier announced November date.

With issues having been addressed, the phone will now make it to UK online retailer Expansys. The device would be available as a contract-free, unlocked version and would cost €439.99. The phone is also up for pre-order on monthly deals with O2, Orange and Vodafone for €26.81/month.

The Dell Venue Pro is the only portrait-sliding QWERTY keyboard model to house Windows Phone 7 OS. Interestingly, this model is also Dell’s first to use the OS from Microsoft. That being said, the initial setback in the U.K was apparently due to Microsoft’s issues with European MMS settings.

Dell Venue Pro comes with a unique form factor and is powered by a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 512 MB RAM. The display spreads across 4.1 inches of AMOLED capacitive touchscreen space.

It also has a 5 MP camera with HD video capture capabilities, and also features support for Xbox Live Gaming, 3G & Wi-Fi. An 8 GB of internal storage also has been incorporated, though there is no MicroSD card slot for this being a Windows Phone 7 device.

Customers in the UK, are you ready? Tell us if you are buying the Dell Venue Pro.  We would advise you to check out the device at Expansys now.
