Dell Venue Pro release delay intrigue: At least one shipped

In a previous post today we told about the new Dell Venue Android phone similar to the Dell Venue Pro which runs on Windows Phone 7 and earlier in the week we had reported that those people eagerly awaiting their Dell Venue Pro’s to arrive would be disappointed as the release had been delayed until sometime in January 2011.

E-mails are being sent to customers by Dell to inform them of the delay although no explanation why have been given but the speculation is that there may be some issues with quality control. Now though Vlad Savov over on Engadget, has brought us some intriguing news as it appears that at least one customer is about to receive their handset.

Apparently one person who ordered the 8GB Venue Pro on December 2 has had their phone shipment picked up from Texas and it’s currently winging its way to him, according to FedEx’s online tracking service. Meanwhile Bonnie Cha over on Cnet is reporting that the Dell community blog is providing updates on the Venue Pro release and currently it says that the delay depends on when customers placed their orders and Dell is hoping to deliver more on Friday.

This is all rather intriguing and leads us to wonder if you’ve ordered a Dell Venue Pro, whether you’ve already received yours, or heard when it might be arriving? We’d welcome your thoughts on this so please do send us your comments.
