[CES 2015] Dell’s new Venue 8 Android tablet is sexy

Usually a description of Dell’s hardware will include words like ‘functional’, ‘robust’ and ‘boring’ because the company is typically focused on commercial sales of its notebooks to companies that are far more concerned with function over form. All of this made our first sighting of the Dell Venue 8 7000 series tablet that much more startling as its sleek, slim and, quite frankly, sexy design exploded our brains.

Running on Intel’s 2.33GHz quad core Bay Trail tablet chip along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of microSD expandable storage the Venue 8 should have no trouble with the Android 4.4 operating system (which will have a planned upgrade to Android 5.0 shortly) as well as the standard rigors of tablet computing. The stand out spec is the Venue 8’s 8.4 inch, 2 560×1 600 resolution, OLED display which sits snug in the 6mm thick aluminium frame of the Venue 8 which is thinner than that of the stand out competitor in the small tablet crowd, Apple’s iPad Mini.

On the back are three cameras, a standard 8-megapixel camera along with two additional 720p cameras that allow the Dell Venue 8 7000 to capture 3D images and adjust focus points after pictures have been taken in much the same way that HTC’s One (M8) would do with its dual camera setup.

Dell will be selling the venue 8 7000 starting at $400 in the US which is the exact same price as the entry level iPad Mini 3 that should see the Dell arriving in South Africa for a similar retail price to it’s competitor of R5 499. As soon as we here anything with regard to official pricing or availability we’ll let you know.
