WP7 Dell Venue Pro comes to UK on 8 November, costs 500 GBP - read the full textWe knew the Windows Phone 7 powered Dell Venue Pro would come to Europe sooner or later but now we also got some specifics about it. The portrait slider will come to the UK in a few weeks time and will cost a good 500 pounds. The Dell Venue Pro is already listed for pre-order at eXpansys so if...

The weirdest thing about the phones specs, which to my surprise even GSMAreana and Microsoft haven't corrected in their specs that YES it does have a dual LED Flash along with its 5MP camera. We can clearly see it in the pics above.

Even at £440 it's still a pretty good deal. You have to keep in mind that all WP7 phones have top spec - similar to the iPhone 4 and Desire HD.....and top end phones usually retail for around £500 or thereabouts. I just hope a few carriers in the UK take it up so it's available free (or for a small fee) on contract.

Clove and Expansys may get their devices earlier than the rest of the world, but they overprice it like heck. They even tried to sell the T-Mobile US HD2 for around $700 when the T-Mobile MSRP without a contract was only $450. Using proportions, the Dell Venus Pro should be only be 341 pounds maximum.

This phone is demanding a review!

500gbp is quite the gamble on a new OS... All the best to you Microsoft!!

This market desperately needs a 3rd competition.

Now you're talking Dell. A phone that can exploit WP7 and perhaps make it successful?

always preffered portrait to landscape phones and this one is no exception =D,but since its high end it means no buy from me due to most probably high price

I read the official specsheet of this phone on Dell and it comes with a lot of features that WinPh 7 does not support on other WinPh 7 devices. I also e-mailed Expansys about this thing 2 days ago before placing my pre-order and they doublechecked with Dell and mailed back to me today and it does come with card-slot etc etc among other things not present on other WinPh 7 devices. I guess Dell must have done a really good job in integrating these specs on a WinPh7 phone.
