Dell Venue Pro

In addition to the HTC HD7, T-Mobile will offer the Dell Venue Pro this holiday season. It's one of the more unique handsets in the Windows Phone 7 portfolio, thanks to its portrait slider design.

The smartphone feels very solid in the hand. In addition to the slide-out QWERTY keyboard, the Venue Pro also offers a 4.1-inch WVGA AMOLED touch screen, which was both sharp and responsive in our brief hands-on time with the device.

Slider keyboard

Unlike the LG Quantum, the Venue Pro offers a slide-out QWERTY keyboard in portrait mode. Having the keyboard in this orientation allows for easier one-handed use.

Keyboard

With the portrait keyboard, it enables easier one-handed operation. We found it pretty comfortable to use. The buttons have a slight bump to them and there's enough space around the keyboard so your thumbs don't hit the edges of the phone.

Side profile

On the right side of the phone, you get a volume rocker and a camera key. At this angle, you can also notice a slight elliptical design to the phone.
