Dell unveils a trio of Venue-branded tablets for Android and Windows usersBy Shawn Knight 8 comments
Dell has announced a trio of new Venue-branded tablets for both Android and Windows users at its Dell World 2014 event in Austin, Texas.
The new lineup starts with the Venue 8 Pro 3000 series. This slate features an 8-inch touchscreen display operating at a resolution of 1,280 x 800 and is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom processor alongside 1GB of system memory.
It packs 32GB of onboard storage, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.2-megapixel front shooter and Wi-Fi with Miracast - all running Windows 8.1. Expect to pay just $199.99 for the opportunity - $100 less than last year's model.
The Dell Venue 11 Pro 7000 series, meanwhile, starts at $699.99 and includes a large 10.8-inch full HD touchscreen display. Also running Windows 8.1, it's powered by a fanless Intel Core M 5Y10a dual-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz mated with 4GB of RAM, Intel GT2 graphics and your choice of 64GB or 128GB of solid state storage.
Connectivity options include dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC. An 8-megapixel camera is positioned on the back of the tablet while a 2-megapixel camera draws the assignment up front. Although not included, Dell also sells a keyboard dock for the new slate complete with embedded battery.
Last but not least is the Dell Venue 8 7000 series, an Android tablet packing an impressive 8.4-inch display with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600. It's powered by a dual-core Atom processor with 2GB of RAM on tap and 16GB of storage for starters. Perhaps more impressive, however, is the tablet's profile: just 6mm thin.
Pricing starts at $699.99, we're told.
