Dell Venue Pro

 

Dell's Venue Pro runs Microsoft's Windows phone OS, has a massive screen and a slide out keyboard. But is it worth the relatively high asking price?

Fast processor, Good keyboard, Decent camera

Large and bulky, No multi-tasking support, Short battery life

Dell Venue Pro review

 

A good-looking, sturdily built handset, the chrome-trimmed Dell features a slightly curved, super-bright screen and swish diamond-patterned backplate. Gorilla Glass protects the display from scratches.

Dell's Venue Pro is a very well-built Windows Phone 7 handset with a gorgeous 4.1in AmoLED screen and a useful qwerty keypad. Although Windows Phone 7 has work to do to take on Apple's iOS and Google Android, the Dell puts up a very good fight in...

REVIEW: Dell Venue Pro

 

With the increasing popularity of Apple's iOS and Google's Android mobile operating systems, it was inevitable that Microsoft's Windows Mobile share of the smartphone market was to take a hit. Consequently, the Redmond-based company pulled its socks up...

Regardless of what Dell tells you, the Venue Pro’s elliptical form factor does not make it easy to carry and there’s no getting away from the fact that it’s a monster of a device. Sure it feels sturdy and dependable, but no-one will want to carry this...
