No only new cellphones can be upgraded to window 8. This O.S can only be upgraded to 7.8. Everything is same except some security modules. It is expected to be upgraded by may of this year.
my dell venue pro with SIM ID NO. 89233020400093509486 is giving me problems.the speakers are not fucntioning as a result, am not able to talk on skype nor use the radio. it does not ring when someone calls eventhough it is on ringing mode. the screen remains inactive whenever i call and as a result, am unable to end a call or put a call on mute or on hold. I need technical advice to solve this problem since am not getting the best out of it. thank you.
I am using the cellphone from last 2 months. The cellphone is great. It feels good to have a smartphone like it. I have not faced any problem from the time I purchased it. There is no phone which could be called perfect so if it does not do exactly what you want its just a phone like the other phones.
My phone easily connects to wifi, gprs, even 3g network and the speed is good as tested by me. The camera is little shaky but if you will go through the settings you will find it pretty good. The video recording is also good. The qwerty keypad will also ease you up in the beginning if you have not used a touch cell phone before and the keys are pretty good and responsive.
The gaming experience is great on it as the touch is very light and feels great. I love playing games on it and the games does not slow or hangs when playing.
The only negative point I found in the phone was the battery life. The battery drains out quickly. It lasts only a day but keeping in mind the O.S and the features of the cellphone I think it is resist-able, as I have used samasung galaxy s2 and htc radar before and their battery life was the same. If you want a phone with great battery life use nokia 1100.
If you face any problem using the cellphone just google the problem and you will find lots of solution that you can use it remove it, I personal had few problems in the settings but I too overcame them using those suggestions.
So in all I think it is a good and affordable choice for people who want to have a difference from the crowd.

Never Buy this. This phone some time receives other calls in the neighbourhood. I used to find my phone is idle(Not in an Inbound or Outbound call) but i can listen to people speaking over phone to each other. Recently i found this phone will not work for IVRS calls as it never recognises the keys pressed as actual key. I have faced this with citibank and thought it is issue with provider and changed the sim and tried again to find the same issue, so it is an issue with Hardware.

Click volume up/down, then in the corner on type of alarm. Should change.
I've had previous Windows Mobile devices for seven year. I've had the Dell Venue Pro Windows 7.5 Mango for eight days. And eight days is all it took to turn me completely against Windows forever. The software/operating system are absolute garbage.
And I LOVED the older WM set ups.
This is NOTHING like previous Windows Mobile. Everything they learned, everything they knew, they threw out the window and started from the ground up. And THEY were obviously a team of morons with insufficient experience to design a paper airplane, let alone a piece of modern technology.
And at every step of the way, it is set up for you to HAVE to share your info and your content with Microsoft. Obviously they realized they could not make enough money selling WM devices against Android and iPhone, so Microsoft decided to make money by selling all your personal profiles and preferences that they accumulate to marketing companies.
Way to go Microsoft-- you created a new stream of revenue while destroying your entire interface with the user!
Clearly, we will see Microsoft fall to nothing in our lifetimes. It is well underway. No company that ruins its product the way Microsoft has will survive.
