Dell missing from Windows Phone 7.1 Mango line-up

Windows Phone 7.1 Mango is official along with new OEM partners Acer, Fujitsu and ZTE, all of whom have committed to releasing at least one WP7.1 device by the end of the year. One curious omission from Microsoft's partner slide, however, is Dell; the company launched one Windows Phone 7 device, the Dell Venue Pro, back at the platform's initial launch, but is conspicuous by its absence at the Mango preview today.

Dell Venue Pro in the UK Delayed Until February Due to Software

Dell Venue Pro in the UK Delayed Until February Due to Software

The Dell Venue Pro is one of the Windows Phone 7 handsets that, while it hasn't seen a huge adoption rate due to the fact that it hasn't seen an actual "smooth" release since its announcement, is still one of the more popular handsets. It's got the features that people want, and a portrait slider that hides a physical keyboard. But, it looks like the device, as far as those heading to the United Kingdom are concerned anyway, won't be making a timely arrival, either.

Dell Venue Pro Already Seeing Some WiFi Issues?

If you couldn't tell, Dell's Venue Pro Windows Phone 7 device is a hot device at the moment. You can only find them in Microsoft Stores at the moment, which are pock-marked across the country, but initial results show that it's pretty hard to get your hands on one. But, being an early adopter doesn't always (usually ever) mean that you're going to get a perfect performance right out of the box, and it looks like Dell's smartphone is suffering from some issues. Namely, connecting to some WiFi locations.

Plan on Getting a Dell Venue Pro from a Microsoft Store Today? Run, Don’t Walk.

The rumors are true, the Dell Venue Pro is, in fact, available today at Microsoft's seven flagship stores today, and they're flipping out the door like hotcakes.
