Dell Venue Pro release date December 9: Order now

Last month we brought you news of Windows Phone 7 handsets being launched and one of those was the Dell Venue Pro. We also told how Dell was to move its employees from using BlackBerry smartphones to the Dell Venue Pro to save on costs.

Now we hear that finally the Dell Venue Pro, which has had a lot of positive press, can be ordered online ready for its release on December 9, according to Vlad Savov over on Engadget, sourced from Dell. The Venue Pro has a 4.1” WVGA AMOLED capacitive multitouch display with full QWERTY keyboard and built in Office Mobile.

The price is $99.99 for the 8GB handset or $149 for the 16GB, with T-Mobile on a two-year contract. Without a contract the prices are $449 or $499. This news is going to excite a lot of people and comes in prime time for the holiday shopping season, a great move on Dell’s part.
