Straight from the horse’s mouth, it appears that Dell has plans to add more models to its lineup of smartphones running Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 operating system.

Dell Venue Pro with Windows Phone 7Tim Weber, a BBC Business Editor, recently spoke with Dell CEO Michael Dell, after which he tweeted that he was told that “Dell would launch several new WinPh7 models.”

Dell also referenced the demand for more Windows Phone 7 models from the company, which Weber also tweeted about: “Windows Phone 7: Michael Dell tells me demand for these phones is higher than Dell can supply.” Still, the the BBC editor said this CEO admitted that “we don’t make *that* many”.

As it stands now, Dell only manufactures one smartphone running the Windows Phone 7 operating system, the Venue Pro, which began shipping at the beginning of December last year.

With a 4.1-inch screen, 1 GHz processor, and 8 GB of internal storage, the Venue Pro sets the bar at an impressive height for any follow-up Dell models running Windows Phone 7.

Even as it is making models running Microsoft’s OS, Dell is covering its bases by offering smartphones and tablets running the rival Android OS.
