Dell Venue Pro and the Mango update

Dell has finally released some information about the upcoming Windows Phone Mango update (opens in new tab) and their Venue Pro. In a nut shell all unlocked handsets (in supported countries) will be updated when the roll-out begins and those with T-Mobile and Cincinnati Bell SIM-locked units will also be supported.

There's no word on AT&T SIM-locked while plans are still being finalised, hopefully more details will be released sooner rather than later. Keep tight everyone.

  • dam i was all exited when i saw BELL ,, then i realized it was Cincinnati Bell and not *bell* :(
  • Yippee....I love my VP and will love it even more now. This is gonna be sweet!
  • And at&t gets fucked again. Why I and anyone else has faith in dell or at&t is beyond me.
  • well DELL is good .. At&T is **** lol .... never ever hear good things come from them, img lad im not in the USA dealign with that carrier, HAH ;)
  • It doesn't say AT&T won't upgrade the Dell Venue Pro to 7.5, just that there's no news as of the moment. And though many like to bash AT&T, in my town, it has the best 3G performance by a long shot, their customer service is spot on, and I get a 15 percent discount on service because my workplace contracts with AT&T. I have had very few problems with my Focus. It's miles better than the iPhone 4 I had before, for the way I use it.
  • I hope they don't do some IP address **** and block updates for people who are outside the US but bought it from Dell US.
  • Was there any doubt that these handsets would get the update?Otherwise I don't see any information that wasn't already known.
