This is the trend I am willing to support. First Samsung Omnia W, desperately followed by Nokia Lumia 710 and then more recently Lumia 800 – have all undergone massive price drops here in India. Dell Venue pro, received a price cut at the beginning of the year and was selling for nearly 20,000 Rupees and now according to Flipkart: Dell Venue Pro is now available for 15,490 Rupees. Dell has had a pretty bad Windows Phone OEM image if you ask me, first they didn’t bother to stock the devices in time and then riddled the existing buyers by not providing them with necessary firmware in time. Our editor has written about one of the issues here. Hit the source link below for the flipkart product page.
My 2 cents regarding DVP: It’s an excellent phone – great build quality and most importantly, it has a slide out vertical physical keyboard. Yes, it’s the only and only Windows Phone device in India with a physical keyboard. It also has a 4.1 inch screen with 16 GB of memory. DVP has everything that you’d find in 1st generation Windows Phone devices and most importantly, you can unlock it too.
