The Venue 7 and 8 families have been reworked upon and now it is updated with Android 4.4 KitKat. Dell introduced the Venue line of tablets last year, including 7-inch and 8-inch Android (4.2.2 Jelly Bean) powered models, and, Venue 7, had an older Intel Atom processor. Both the new Venue tablets will be available at the company’s online store starting July 1.
The Dell Venue 7 has been priced at $159.99 (Rs. 9,500 approximately), while the Venue 8 pro comes at $199.99 (Rs. 12,000 approximately). The changes definitely appear to be for the better, as the Android-based Venues now feature the latest Intel dual-core Atom processors — the 1.6GHz Z3460 for the Venue 7 and the 2.1GHz Z3480 for the Venue 8.
Apart from Venue 7 and Venue 8 tablets, Dell also launched a range of 2-in-1 devices and all-in-one PCs, including the Inspiron 11 3000 Series, Inspiron 13 7000 Series, and Inspiron 20 3000 Series.
The Venue 7 tablet features a 7-inch IPS display with WXGA (1280×800 pixels) resolution. It is powered by a dual-core Intel Atom (Z3460) ‘Merrifield’ processor clocked at 1.6GHz coupled with 1GB of RAM. There are some other improvements also which include a thinner, lighter chassis, but sadly the RAM has been reduced to half of the size. They continue to include 16GB of built-in storage, which can be further expanded via microSD card (up to 64GB). Notably, both the Venue 7 and Venue 8 tablets are backed by a 4550mAh battery. The Venue 8, on the other hand, comes with an 8-inch display IPS display, as the name suggests. The screen sports full-HD (1920×1200 pixels) resolution. It is also powered by a dual-core Intel Atom (Z3480) ‘Merrifield’ processor clocked at 2.1GHz alongside 1GB of RAM.
The Venue 7 tablet sports a 5-megapixel rear camera, while there is a 1-megapixel front-facing camera also. Meanwhile, the Venue 8 tablet sports a 5-megapixel rear camera and also houses a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. Dell hopes the upgrades will help the Venue compete against the bevy of Android tablets in the marketplace, including the saturation bombing approach of Samsung, the leader thanks to its offering more than 10 Android slates at the moment. Commenting on the launch, Sam Burd, Vice President and General Manager, Dell Personal Computing Product Group said, “The Dell Venue tablets are designed to be essential companions to power projects, provide entertainment, and share meaningful moments with family and friends. Dell customers have more flexibility than ever before to have their technology move with them throughout the day and become a seamless part of their lives.”
