At last, Dell Venue Pro users on T-Mobile may finally get some reprieve next month as Dell is evidently set to roll out a new firmware to address the plethora of bugs plaguing the device.
In numerous recent Tweets, Lionel Menchaca (Dell's chief blogger), mentions that the update is coming next month and that he'll detail more in a blog post:
Of course we've heard about past firmware updates from Dell back at the end of March, but relief has yet to come to users who are still suffering from poor WiFi connections and general instability of the device, thought to be connected to the internal SD card.
We've heard that Dell has been working closely with Microsoft to fix these ongoing issues and hopefully that will come to fruition in July. The DVP is one of the most innovative Windows Phones out there, in terms of sheer design, so it's a shame to see it marred with so many problems and complaints (not to mention the seemingly slow response from Dell on the matter). Stay tuned.
Update: Evidently, Dell are already replacing some user phones with devices running the new firmware. From @paulvtattoo:
