The Dell Venue Pro is Dell’s first Windows Phone 7 device, and the first smartphone to run Microsoft’s newest mobile operating system to have a portrait-sliding physical QWERTY keyboard. As such, it’s a rather interesting handset.
In the US, it was announced in October of last year, as part of the first batch of WP7 devices to be officially unveiled. However, it was headed to T-Mobile. In fact, it’s been sold with T-Mobile specific 3G bands ever since.
Until now, that is. Dell has started selling a version of the Venue Pro that’s tailor made for AT&T, sporting that carrier’s particular 3G bands. AT&T’s Venue Pro comes with either 8 GB, 16 GB, or 32 GB of internal storage, and which of those you pick influences how much you have to pay.
The 8 GB version goes for $99.99 with a new two-year contract. The 16 GB version will set you back $149.99, and for 32 gigs of memory you have to shell out no less than $199.99 – obviously the same two-year agreement is necessary.
Aside from its distinctive keyboard, the Venue Pro packs a 1 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, a 5-megapixel camera, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 4.1-inch 480×800 capacitive touchscreen.
