"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.
