UK and Germany Will Soon See the Dell Venue Pro
"Well, here's some good news for the folks on the other side of the pond: starting today, Dell's UK store is taking orders for this unlocked slider for a hefty £459 ($745), and the first deliveries are expected to arrive in 10 days. Man, these wicked people from Round Rock sure love making us wait, but better late than never, right?"
Ever since it was announced, the Dell Venue Pro has been one of the Windows Phone 7 handsets that differentiated itself from the competition. It's 4.1" AMOLED screen, its portrait keyboard, and elegant design opened a lot of eyes and left many of us foaming at the mouth.
Unfortunately, it has had a somewhat rocky launch in the US and has had a challenge keeping up with orders.
With the UK launch now announced, hopefully that signals that Dell has been able to straighten out what was plaguing them and is now going to be able to deliver this handset into more eager hands.
