Dell, a traditionally PC maker, announced two Android tablets earlier this month in the Dell Venue family and promised that the tablets would be available for buyers starting October 18th. Well, if you have been looking forward to getting one of these finely designed Dell tablets, you can place an order today with as little as $150 to get the 7 inch Dell Venue 7. If you want the larger Venue 8, you will have to add $30 more as it goes for $180.
These two tablets are identical, save for the differences in screen sizes. As a recap, here are what these two tablets have under the hood:
Processor: Dual-core 2 GHz Intel Atom Z2580 (Z2560 for Venue 7) Clover Trail+ processor
Display: 7 and 8 inch 1,280 x 800 IPS
Operating System: Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean (possible 4.3 upgrade in the near future)
Memory: 2 GB of RAM and choice of 16 and 32 GB onboard memory with microSD card slot
Cameras: 5 megapixels rear, 2 megapixels front
Connectivity: Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi b/g/n, GPS, integrated HSPA+ modem (optional)
Dell’s Venue 7 and Venue 8 tablets are the company’s maiden entry into the Android world and from the design, build and prices of these two tablets, Dell may just have a future in Android as Windows fizzle and the world is drifting away from laptops and PCs towards tablets. For a price of $150, Venue 7 should take on market leaders such as Samsung with their Note phablets, Google’s Nexus 7 and other great mini-tablets and phablets in the market today.
