When we first heard that T-Mobile wouldn’t be picking up the Dell Venue Pro, the company’s first Windows Phone 7 device, and that you would have to buy it directly from Dell, we didn’t have the highest hopes. Guess what? This $99 smart phone (with two-year T-Mobile contract) is pretty solid. The Venue Pro is the most elegantly designed Windows Phone 7 handset yet, and it sports a brilliant AMOLED display and comfy slide-out keyboard. It’s on the heavy side, and we have a few other complaints, but the Venue Pro is one of the better WP7 phones out there. It should tempt mobile pros looking for something less stodgy than a BlackBerry.
