Dell Venue Pro: A Phone You Can Type On

"Surprisingly well balanced, once you stop concentrating on how gawky it looks and realize it feels pretty okay in your hands. Windows Phone 7 doesn't really do very much in landscape mode, so the portrait keyboard is handy, and the keys are juuuust big and raised enough that the keyboard's genuinely easy to type on"

File this on under "the keys are juuuuust big". Gizmodo has done a nice review on the Dell Venue Pro and if you've been looking for a Windows Phone 7 device that you can type on, this phone might be just the ticket for you. To me, this Dell device seems to be a hardware design that's held over from the Windows Mobile "era". I wasn't much of a fan of the slide out keyboard then and I'm not now, but after reading through this review the Dell Venue Pro might be one that fits into the don't knock it until you try category.

It Isn't An iPhone Clone... WP7 Hits The Web

"I think Microsoft created an OS that was completely different from all other competitors, and thats was not not an easy task. The whole concept is different. I like it."

The quote and the title come from commenter vinod1978 at Gizmodo, where they have one of several Windows Phone 7 first-looks that you'll see posted around the net (and on here) today. Windows Phone 7 is making a splash out there, and by and large I think comments pointing out it's uniqueness and new way of doing things are a positive sign. Somehow Microsoft has built something no one else has. Let's hope they can capitalize on it.
