Dell's also joined the Windows Phone 7 party today with the announcement of Dell Venue Pro. It's a portrait slider with full QWERTY keyboard and 4.1-inch AMOLED touchscreen.

Dell Venue Pro was previously rumored as Lightning. Despite its official status we still don't know all specifications beside the obvious - 4.1" capacitive AMOLED touchscreen with Gorilla Glass, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 8GB internal memory and 5 megapixel camera with LED flash and 720p video recording.

The rest of the specs are still unclear, but we think it's more than enough to deserve your interest.

Dell Venue Pro will be T-Mobile exclusive into the USA, but in Europe you will be able to find it from various carriers and retailers. As usual the Venue Pro will be released for the holiday season, while the pricing, plans and specific availability are yet to be announced.

I like the name lightning better than venue pro. But other than that, I like everything else... I've been waiting for this phone to get official since it was first leaked.
