Dell planning wider launch for Dell Venue Pro

Dell Venue Pro

Dell has confirmed that it is ramping up production of its recently announced Dell Venue Pro smartphone to expand availability. The Windows Phone 7 device will be available through T-Mobile USA. The post mentions a “bigger scale” launch but does not clarify whether this means more stock at more T-Mobile locations or a wider launch perhaps with other carriers.

The post also confirms that Dell will only support the microSD card configuration ordered. It confirms that the Dell Venue Pro will stop working if the SD card is removed as it is not designed to be user-accessible. It also turns out that part of the Windows Phone 7 OS is installed on the card.

The Dell Venue Pro is currently the only Windows Phone 7 device to come with a portrait-sliding QWERTY keyboard.
