Dell Venue Pro in unlocked form is price temptingly at $269 outright
Needless to say, $200 in your pockets can fetch you any of the top-notch recently available Windows Phones – like the Samsung Focus S or the HTC Titan. However, if you’re looking for something with a keyboard, especially one that’s in portrait form actually, the only option right now is the aging Dell Venue Pro.

By now, there are probably plenty of portals you can scope to get the best deals with an on-contract Dell Venue Pro, however, you might want to look over the deal that Buy.com is having on the smartphone. Indeed, it’s very hard to resist, but knowing that the Dell Venue Pro is priced outright at $269, it’s easily a great deal to take advantage of right now.

Even better, the price is actually for an unlocked version of the Dell Venue Pro – meaning, it’ll be able to work with just about any GSM network on the planet. In comparison, Dell is asking customers to pony up $379 for the same exact device, so yeah, Buy.com’s deal is considerably better on so many levels.

Yes, its specs are hardly drool worthy in the day and age, but when you think about how flawlessly Windows Phone runs in general, it doesn’t matter all that much. Honestly, the Dell Venue Pro is still regarded as a respectable Windows Phone, so why not get it now?

And the phone also - doesn't seem to be a real DVP!

There needs to be more Windows Phones with physical keyboards, portrait style at that. Since most Windows Phones apps work better in portrait mode rather than landscape, I think the Dell Venue Pro is a great option for people like me who prefer a keyboard.

Why would I buy this instead of a BlackBerry? RIM has lost market share in U. S. but is still profitable. WP7 still does not out sell Windows Mobile.

You have to use it to feel it.
It's the most under rated phone for its price.

I like the hardware design even though the screen is a bit small. But when I tried WP it seems to have problems playing videos in the web browser on some of my favorite web sites. This is a deal breaker for me.

That's probably a flash-video, which isn't supported in WP7, also iOS.
Too bad, my friend felt completely comfortable switching from Torch 9810 to DVP. He loves the physical keypad of Torch, but really likes the virtual keypad of WP7.
