Post here ONLY when you received you DVP phone. Please post pictures and leave a short review of the phone for the other members.

Thanks

If your Venue pro has already been delivered, can you please tell us if FedEx or UPS require your signature for delivery?

I hope some Jerk doesn't just leave it at my front door.
I know some carriers don't knock on the door (even if you're home). They'll just leave it at the door without knocking.

Congratulations to you Sir. I am still waiting for mine. Per the post on Engadget, it seems that if you buy it before the 14th, you will get it before Christmas. Thats some hope at least

Could you do a quick review and let us know if
1) It is unlocked
2) If it is T-Mobile Branded
3) If it has a slot for Expandable Memory.

Thanks

Can someone that has just received their venue pro post a pic taken in low light?

My biggest concern about the DVP is that this phone is going to seem simply huge in hand and pocket.
Any opinions from those who have received theirs?

Received mine this afternoon.

- The keyboard is fantastic. Good clickiness.
- The screen is bright and rich.
- The power button is very awkwardly placed (on the top). Makes single handed wake up challenging.
- No problems with headphone jack.
- Battery life isn't great. I've been using it pretty heavily for about 5 hours and I'm down to about half battery life. Definitely a 'charge every night' device.
- Easy to accidentally brush edge of screen when adjusting grip.
- I would prefer real buttons to capacitive touch buttons since it's really easy to for instance hit the search button with your thumb while taking a picture.
- There seems to be a glitch in the camera software that causes it to go all noisy and pixelated and streaked while adjusting exposure.
- Camera speed is SSLLLLOOOOOOOWWWW SHUTTTTTTEEERRR. Even in day light the exposure feels the need to set the shutter speed to about 1/10th of a second or longer. Getting a blur free photo in doors is all but impossible. If you open up the settings and manually set it up, all of the bugs seem to be fixed. So it looks like they need a patch for the auto settings (white balance, ISO and flash).
- Call quality is good.
- Headphone music quality seems to be noise free and clear.

Battery life was my biggest concern. I thought they had gone for 1500 MAh but on the pocketnow unboxing they say it's 1400. Still, we can only comment on it after a few days I guess.

The DVP with AT&T bands passed FCC muster. Looking at the photo of that box, I didn't see any branding whatsoever on the exterior. It just says Dell Venue Pro. That may mean an even more compelling reason that the DVP is coming to AT&T. One box, multiple carriers?
