Dell Venue Pro for T-Mobile (Hands on)

Yup, of course we got to play with the Dell Venue Pro (an odd name) aka the 'Lightning'. Featuring a 4.1" screen with 8GB of storage, the device felt pretty solid in our hands. It was a bit top heavy with the keyboard out, but nothing serious. Speaking of, the slider is fantastic--you really feel the springs and quality with this one.

The keyboard itself is also quite nice, though a bit cramped (being a portrait slider, this is natural). Here's a funny thing though: yeah, the onscreen keyboard is really, really as good as everyone says it is. Seriously. Phil and I were both banging away on the HD7 and were shocked at the speed and accuracy. All of this almost, almost makes the hardware keyboard feel redundant. Still, we know some of you want this bad boy and we don't blame you--it's a sold device.

In fact, all the phones today feel fast, smooth and top quality. We like these new hardware restrictions as we get consistency for once.

The Dell Venue Pro will be on T-Mobile, features a 5MP camera and Gorilla Glass for the screen. A few more shots after the break!

Does gorilla glass really make a difference in screen durability?

Yeah, I think it really does. I mean it's not bullet proof, but for everyday banging around, it goes along way.

says:

Looking good. It's kind of funny that the premier partner doesn't seem to be getting the 2 higher-end phones (actually, 3 with the HTC 7 Pro), this one and the HD7.

Sam Sabri says:

It is such a shame that this thing has 8GB of storage. Cloud computing be damned those times when you're without coverage or don't want to kill your battery. I wonder if the unit you have just happens to be 8GB since I've read elsewhere that its 16.

cenkaetaya says:

i agree, the single biggest disappointing thing about all these phones is no card slot.

:/

... i hope its not always gona be like this.

i guess because ive never even come close to putting 8 gbs of anything onto my phone this doesnt mean anything to me, i typically dont keep music or movies stored on my phone when i can just stream them 99 percent of the time

SteveyAyo#WP says:

So is that a camera on the front or what?

Go Android! says:

Definitely one of the best looking phones if not the best. I feel like i'm cheating on my gf by looking at this...how weird is that?
