The launch of the Dell Venue Pro has been much delayed but the Windows Phone 7 handset is finally available to buy in the UK this month.
The Venue Pro will be hitting the market at a price point of £459 if you want to buy the SIM free version, which will put it into a competitive price bracket.
With a 4.1 inch OLED display the Venue Pro should hold its own when it comes to media playback and browsing. It also has a slide-out portrait QWERTY keypad which is aimed at pleasing high-volume messaging fans and business users who want the reliability of a physical keypad to complete their work.
Interestingly the Dell Venue Pro is actually hitting shelves at the same time as another keyboard-toting Windows Phone 7 handset, namely the HTC 7 Pro. HTC’s handset is a little cheaper, costing around £432 if you want to buy it outright.
The HTC 7 Pro features a landscape QWERTY keypad which gives you a little more space for typing, but its other specs are a little less impressive, with a 3.6 inch display looking a little measly when compared with the OLED glory of the Venue Pro.
