Dell updates its Venue Pro to NoDo, promises another update "soon"
The Dell Venue Pro has been one heck of a darling in the Windows Phone 7 lineup. The slide-down keyboard, reminiscent of what can be found on a BlackBerry or even the Palm Pre, is its main attraction.
However, one big obstacle standing in the way of the handset's immediate success was the way it started out. The device had a major isue with its manufacturing process from the start, and even if Dell cleared specific units to ship, they still had problems. Now, they're pretty much cleared up. And because of that, Dell has decided it's high time to update their flagship cellular phone to WP7's copy-and-paste-enabled NoDo version starting now and continuing over the next few weeks.
But this isn't the only piece of news coming out of Round Rock today. According to an email I received in my inbox, Dell will also be pushing another update to the Venue Pro "soon." Here's the official word:
Dell will also be issuing an update to the Venue Pro that will provide additional enhancements/ fixes. We don't have an ETA to share for that update but will let you know once it comes.
It's kind of unfortunate that we don't know what those enhancements and fixes will bring, and we really can't guess either since most of the phone's wrinkles have already been ironed out. I'm sure we'll find out soon, though, and while we wait, at least current Venue Pro owners know what to expect from NoDo.[Übergizmo]
