Dell's Window Phone 7 handset arrival date unveiled

Online mobile device reseller Expansys has announced the Dell Venue Pro Windows Phone 7 handset will be on sale SIM free and unlocked, from November 8th.

The computer giant's offering in the Windows Phone 7 space has a price tag of £499.99, where there isn't any major mobile phone network associated with that handset - unlike every other WP7 mobile from launch.

Dell's Venue Pro has a 4.1-inch 800x480 touch screen, with a 5 megapixel camera and LED Flash. There is only 1GB of internal memory, although the phone is accompanied by a microSD card slot, where it's the only Windows Phone 7 handset to do so - along with being the only one with a physical Qwerty keyboard.

Venue Pro is powered by the Qualcomm 8250 SnapDragon 1Ghz chipset, the same proc that appears in every Windows Phone 7 handset launched as this is the minimum specification for powering WP7.

The Dell Venue Pro was aired at the UK launch event for Windows Phone 7, where it was believed the mobile phone network O2 would be carrying the mobile but no news has subsequently come from them to confirm this rumour.
