I am a big fan of the Windows Phone platform. The clean, elegant and smooth interface is exactly what I want in a mobile. I have been lusting after the Dell Venue Pro for months now. You all know that I live and breath by QWERTY. The Venue Pro’s large 4.0 inch display and nice QWERTY keyboard makes it a very attractive device for me.
However, the lack of Skype on Windows Phone has been a stumbling block to me. I carry two devices at the moment – the Samsung Galaxy S II for my voice, SMS and multimedia needs, and the Blackberry 9810 for my mobile office needs. Unfortunately, there is no Skype app available for the BlackBerry platform. Getting a Windows Phone for everyday use (to likely replace the SGSII) before now would have meant carrying around two devices without Skype. In my books, not good.
I pick my devices such that they complement one another. A Windows Phone and BlackBerry combination would have been a bad idea – but not anymore!
With Skype available for Windows Phone, now I can start exploring how to get my grubby hands on a Dell Venue Pro, all other things being equal.
