On the inside is going to be a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor running Windows Phone 7.
The Venue Pro is going to be able to connect to T-Mobile's 3G network, and it will include Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth, and a GPS receiver.
It will also sport a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash, an FM tuner, and a 1400 mAh battery.

Microsoft Windows Phone 7 Preview
Despite its name, this new smartphone operating system has little in common with its predecessors. It will have a completely different user interface and won't run applications written for the earlier versions nor will any current models be upgradeable.
Still, it will include some hold-overs from Windows Mobile that business users want: Microsoft Office Mobile and support for synchronizing with Microsoft Exchange.
It will work with Microsoft's Zune music service, as well as the Xbox Live gaming service.
Pricing and Availability
Dell says the Venue Pro will be available in time for the holiday shopping season, but declined to be more specific.
The company also didn't say what this model is going to cost.
