I know this is beating the dead horse, but I'm just curious as to how Dell can release the Venue Pro, WITHOUT THE COMPASS? I mean, that is a minimum requirement for a windows phone, and Dell doesn't meet it!
Now, I personally don't care about the compass because I've used it exactly ZERO times in any other WP that I've owned. I mainly just want to get a conversation going about this, so Dell knows that we want ALL of our device features, that we are supposed to have.
I agree that the Compass is a basic feature promised by Dell for the Venue Pro. I have also read in other forums that this feature was present on the Dell website till Jan 2012 when it was removed. I also read that this feature was present in Mango BETA testing and when Mango finally released, the feature went missing because some dll was renamed.
I think Dell can easily activate the feature by renaming the DLL for the compass and it needs to provide the update at the earliest. I also agree with you that this feature was a promised feature and it needs to keep the commitment.
agree... though don't hold your breath. The DVP is now discontinued, so we'll see how much support we'll have for the device.
