Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on February 28th, 2011

Remember the Venue Pro? Well, it has been struggling to meet demand in the US due to some reworking, the nature of which is a mystery. But there’s good news for those of you living overseas. Beginning today, Dell’s UK store is taking orders for the unlocked slider for £459 (that’s $745).

The first deliveries are expected to arrive in 10 days. Let’s hope that they do. You’ve been waiting long enough, right? Germany is also getting the Venue Pro today for about €534.

The Dell Venue Pro is now finally one step closer to launch as Dell has begun taking online orders for its first Windows Phone 7 device. Prices are $99 for the 8GB handset or $149 for the 16GB version. That’s with two-year contracts with T-Mobile as your carrier.

The other alternative is paying $449 for each if you just want the phone and no contract. Shipping is December 9th and they throw in free delivery too if you are willing to wait a few extra days.

Windows Phone 7 bug prevents secure Wi-Fi on Venue Pro, HD7

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on November 9th, 2010

A flaw that may be linked to Windows Phone 7 itself may be preventing devices from connecting to secure Wi-Fi points. That’s what new owners have discovered since launch. Those trying to reach a locked network are told they “couldn’t reach the Wi-Fi network” even when using a valid password.

And it looks like the issue isn’t just confined to one device. It has affected at least the Dell Venue Pro and HTC HD7, according to BGR. It hasn’t affected unprotected networks and hasn’t had any significant attention during the European and Australian launches, so it could involve US-specific firmware.

Dell offering free Venue Pros to employees in exchange for BlackBerrys

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on November 5th, 2010

Dell is offering to trade employees’ old and broken BlackBerry devices for the new Venue Pro. That’s pretty generous of the company and if everyone takes them up on the offer, there will be 25,000 RIM smartphones out of a job.

It is not just nice to do, its good for business. The Wall Street Journal says that this will cut Dell’s mobile communications bill by a full quarter, as they will no longer have to support BlackBerry servers. In other news Android variants will be made available in the future as well.
