Dell Venue Pro in unlocked form is price temptingly at $269 outright
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.

And the only thing I can think duing this article is: Why is Snarf holding up the Dell Venue Pro?

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.
