    Dell Venue Pro

    Coming January 2011?

    The Dell Venue Pro, which was set to launch before the end of the year, to join the other Windows Phone 7 handsets like the Samsung Omnia 7 and HTC 7 Mozart, is now likely to see its arrival slip back to January 2011.

    Originally, the Venue Pro was going to be among the initial gaggle of Windows Phone 7 handsets to grace the market, but Dell has said that problems with the manufacturing process have meant that it will not be delivered to those who pre-ordered it until early next year.

    Early reviews of the Venue Pro, which arrived in tandem with Windows Phone 7’s launch, suggested that it was not among the best of the bunch, although its 4.1 inch display and slide-out QWERTY keypad would make it ideal for business users.

    Complaints surrounding Wi-Fi performance and battery issues have plagued the handset, according to Engadget, along with SIM card problems, which means that delays were sure to follow as Dell struggled for fixes.

    Some online retailers list the Dell Venue Pro as being available in the UK on the 11th of January, but until it is safely in the hands of those who have pre-ordered it, you should take that with a pinch of salt.
