Dell Venue Pro Available From O2 For £28.77 Per Month

The Dell Venue Pro, the company's first slide out Windows Phone 7 handset, can now be purchased from O2 for as little as £28.77 per month on a two year contract.

The deal, available at Buymobilephones.net, includes 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB data.

Like all other Windows Phone 7 handsets, the Dell Venue Pro comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor running at 1GHz.

There's also a 512MB RAM, a huge 4.1-inch WVGA AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with Gorilla glass on top, a slide-out vertical QWERTY keyboard which means that the handset is aimed at business people.

Other features include Wi-Fi, a five megapixel camera with flash, music streaming with Zune, gaming via Xbox Live as well as Microsoft Office apps.

As expected, there's no front facing camera or microSD card reader but you do get three Windows buttons. Strangely enough, the deal is not available on T-Mobile or 3 UK.

Dell put the Venue Pro on sale directly from its website for as little as £458.40 although some vendors are selling it for less than £450.

The Venue Pro is the second smartphones launched by Dell; the first one in years was the the Android-based Streak which was a five-inch touchscreen only tablet.
