I had been using mine for two years up to today when my Lumia 920 came in. Great phone, really sh*tty camera. Hate hate hate that camera. Other than that it was the best WP7 launch device. So strange not having the keyboard anymore and using the screen, especially with the Lumia being just as big for the most part.

I still have mine. A few issues but as loong as I have that keyboard I will work this phone until it doesn't boot, or until my upgrade. Agreed on how crapy the camera is. I read about it and thought "eh who cares. It's a phone. a camera phone shot isn't supposed to be top noch quality anyway" but then I realized it's almost unusable. Don't know how that passed quality control.
Wonder when/if DVP is going to see 7.8. ANy one hear any rumors?In the Vortex...

Hopefully 7.8 turns up for DVP just like Tango did. The slider portrait keyboard is the best thing its got and I remember buying the phone for the keyboard alone (and of course for the OS). Been experiencing problems lately where the phone suddenly turns off and I cannot turn it on until I reinsert the battery (strange!).

Part of me still regrets not getting one. I so miss the protrait slider form factor. Just about every phone I owned since I moved away from my original RAZR flip phone was a slider until my Focus S (I also had a BB Curve for a while). When I needed a new "used" phone, I was deciding between a Palm Pre Plus, BlackBerry Torch and DVP. I went with the Pre because it was quite a bit cheaper then the other two. Loved WebOS, but boy I wish I would have had the nerve to pull the trigger for the extra 60.00 or so bucks and got the DVP(the Torch was even more). Bet I could still be using it with that satisfying "slide...click" sound all portrait sliders make.
If there was ever an OS optimised for the portrait slider, it is WP. So wish HTC or Nokia takes a chance and let a decent one out...."Life is hard. But it is harder when you are stupid."

Anyway I have had that phone for about a year now and the 920 was just to good so I acquired it and will be using that very soon. I will probably make the DVP my backup or my brother has expressed interest in it I may give it to him.

Absolutely great phone, i just bought mine in a sale for little money, I used to have Samsung omnia Pro B7610 a Nokia E72 and this is just perfect - fast, great design, use it as a developer phone (i am a student so it is free) upgrade SD card... only battery life and camera are bad...

Guess what .. I just bought one a couple of weeks ago.. and am very happy. I never even bothered reading about WP and kept trying Android and Symbian phones for the past 3 years (after finally deciding to give up the Nokia dumb phones I had gotten so used to). I regret having wasted all this time on Android when I could've just gotten this gem of a phone. Oh well.. maybe I would have never realized how good Dell Venue Pros are had I not wasted all that time on Android. And I don't think I will upgrade to 7.8 either. 7.5 is way faster and simpler than anything I have used yet.
