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.
