The Venue Pro from Dell has certainly been one of the most controversial Windows Phone 7 devices since the platform launched. If it isn’t problems with the WiFi radio, it’s availability issues. But the unique slider aspect of the phone keeps capturing people’s imagination and draws them in with it’s clean and classy look. The problem for most people is not that the Venue Pro is so hard to get your hands on, it’s that you can only use the Venue Pro on the T-Mobile network due to the radio bands that Dell picked for the device. Thankfully, this doesn’t appear to be a problem that will be around for much longer. Keen eyes have caught a different Venue Pro seeking approval from the FCC. This model supports the more popular 3G frequencies used in North America by AT&T, Rogers, Bell, Telus, and Fido.
The selection of keyboard-enabled Windows Phone 7 devices is fairly limited. If Dell manages to get this available across all 3G networks, they could really have a winning device on their hands. Of course, they also need to address the other issues with the device – like WiFi and availability. I know that this would move the device up my own personal want list really quickly.
