Dell “Venue Pro” Windows Phone 7 Device Coming Next Week!

Dell’s joining the Windows Phone 7 market with the launche of its first device for Microsoft’s mobile OS. On Dec. 9. Dell will offer “Venue Pro” an 8GB model for $99.99 with a two year contract on T-Mobile, and a 16GB model that sells for $149.99, with contract.

Dell also plans to sell unlocked versions of the phones for $449 and $499, respectively.

Venue Pro features a 4.1-inch WVGA AMOLED capacitive, multi-touch display and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Like other WinP7 devices, it also includes full integration with Office Apps and Xbox Live gaming service.

WP7 devices, regardless of manufacturer, deliver a common user experience based on an interface Microsoft calls Live Tiles. The tiles, six in total, allow users to quickly access calling, social media, messaging, photo, e-mail, and personal apps and services. They also deliver real-time information to the main interface.

Gartner predicts the release of WP7 will help bump Microsoft’s share of the worldwide mobile OS market from 4.7% in 2010 to 5.2% in 2011, but says the company’s share will ultimately fall back to just 3.9% by 2014 as competitors Apple and Google continue to build share with the iPhone and Android, respectively.
