(Updated: $99 And Available Now!) Dell Venue Pro 8GB Now Available For Order, Shipping December 14th

Update: We got word late last night that the device was currently available, officially and for only $99!  Check out the pic below and hit the link to scoop up this bad boy Windows Phone 7 device!

This is a very welcome but surprising turn of events in the Dell Venue Pro saga.  It’s now available for order! We’re looking at an 8GB version of the Dell Venue Pro and we should put it out there that a 16GB model is also to be had though currently not available to order.  Because it does not have user replaceable memory, some of you may want to hold off and spring for another $50 dollars for double the memory or you might just want to jump on this right now before the link disappears.  If your itching to grab the device now, double the memory be damned.  The link below will fulfill all your fantasies!

    • luvlydove

      do it !!!! you only live once !!!!

  • asfdf

    What does it mean “Black 8GB $99.99 with activation?”

    Not sure what this means, can someone explain it to me.

    Thank you!

    • luvlydove

      it means the black 8gb phone will run you $99 with activation of a new line. not that it is offered in any other color. i paid full price-I dont want have nor do i want a contract.

    • Frank Castle

      that’s the version for African-Americans. What do you THINK it means??? Sheesh.

  • luvlydove

    Just ordered my Dell Venue Pro. I am leaving my Blackberry after so many years. I sure do hope I like this phone. Merry Christmas to myself !!

  • Rpsullivanhimself

    Even better, the 16GB is available and so are the family plans. Say what you want about Dell but their customer service was excellent. When I added the 8GB to my cart and attempted activation it only gave me Individual phone plans as an option. I decided to try their online chat with a representative and got hooked up with a Family plan as well as the 16GB! I can’t wait for Christmas now!!!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KHCY4UXJXL7WNMHJSKNXCLY3RQ Damian

      where is the 16gb I only see 8gb on the dell.com

      • Rpsullivanhimself

        I had to talk with their customer service agents. They’ve got my order in but need to call back once its available in their system but they say that is very soon (this week probably).

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KHCY4UXJXL7WNMHJSKNXCLY3RQ Damian

          The service rep right now just said today was the launch day of this phone, he wants me to call tomorrow at 10am CST for an update on the 16gb. just fyi :D

      • Rpsullivanhimself

        Oh and as reported its $149 on activation or $499 without contract for the 16GB

  • Timmyj

    LOL… all of your orders will be cancelled within a day or two. This link was up 2 or 3 weeks back. If you go to the dell.com/venuepro page, it still says “Coming Soon!”. Until that is updated and says ready, you can’t order the phone.

    • The Dude

      It’s “updated and ready” on their main Venue Pro page. Pretty confident about orders being cancelled there, aren’t we?

      • Timmyj

        Haha… just didn’t want to be disappointed.. again! Ordering the 16GB version now!

  • http://www.facebook.com/xtonyprince Antoine Prince

    i hope tmobile or microsoft will get these sooner than this site.

    • Timmyj

      tmobile wont be selling the phone… only available through dell and the microsoft store…. amazon wireless might be picking it up a little down the line

    I have the 8G version now. You definitely want the 16g version.

    Hmmm….now the link you have for the site says 12/9 as a ship date

    It looks like full upgrades are not eligible for the discounted price. I went through the whole process, they allow you to apply the upgrade to an eligible phone on your account, even change the service for the existing line but it does not apply the discounted price…Major BUMMER! Now I have to call to reverse the upgrade on the line because I am not paying full price… :(

    • Timmyj

      They’re not giving me the discount for adding a new line of service?!? —-on the phone with them now

  • Anonymous

    Do you guys think these are available at the Microsoft stores? I like to try things before i make up my mind.

  • Timmyj

    I paid for the overnight shipping… estimated delivery date is the 14th… I sure hope it gets to me no later than the 10th!

  • Martinchav

    Yes the 99.99 price is ONLY for new customers that dont have tmobile if ur upgradeing or adding a new line its 199.99 plus tax

    • julia

      this is not correct. I am eligible for a full upgrade, entered my phone number & account name/SSN, Dell validated and allowed me to go on. ($149 for 16gb w/ full upgrade)

  • Petey

    Don’t really care for WinMo phones.

    no iPhone update? :/

    • Matthew

      This isn’t WinMo, this is Windows Phone :)
      BIG difference!

      • Petey

        Your right! Oops My mistake.

  • Durango

    LAme web ording woun

  • Zunigan

    Upgrades stall tactic?

    You can’t order an upgrade via the web. T-Mobile validation requires a phone number to be submitted and Dell ordering process doesn’t collect one from you to submit So when they try to validate your account with T-Mobile it fails because Dell simply passes on a blank phone number.

    Seems like a very basic thing you would want to check before you start taking online orders.

    • Julia

      Dell asked for my phone number & account holder information and validated my upgrade.

      • Zunigan

        at which step did you get asked for the phone number, I just tried again and it didn’t ask for it.
        I’m now stuck waiting for customer service to call back.

        • Kloc

          Are you using IE9 by chance because the number didn’t show up until I tried Firefox

  • smm1st

    I went through the whole process and did online verification approval but still did not apply the discount. I had to call and speak to customer service. They took my order over the phone and applied the discount. Yay!

    Excellent Phone, Excellent Price. If I weren’t so gaga over Android, I’d get one. Actually almost DID buy it an Alternate phone this morning.

    • Matthew

      Just get it. I promise you will like it :)

  • http://twitter.com/mrjlwilliams J. Williams

    I’m curious to know why T-Mobile didn’t pick this one up in stores, like the Nexus. I wonder if they know something we don’t. hmmmm

    • Matthew

      Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. It sure would be much easier just to go to a T-Mobile store, but…

    wp7 looks real nice!but I still love android…… what i dont like about the hd7 is that its exactly the same thing as my old hd2 but reskinned……PLEASE HELP ME CHOSE A PHONE!!!!!! I love big screen phones (4.3+) so im trying to wait for a big screen android,

    • Matthew

      Go with the Venue Pro
      Windows Phone is going to be much more pleasant than Android, especially after the updates early next year!

      Sorry to hear that, disappointing.

  • Matthew

    As soon as I get the funds together I will purchase the 16gb version. I dont know where any Microsoft Stores are, else I would go there and get it sooner, rather than having to wait.
