Earlier this month Dell officially announced a host of new members to its Venue lineup. Previous models in the series ran on Windows platform, however, this time round the company is bringing Android experience to the table as well. The refreshed lineup consists four devices, the Venue 7, Venue 8, Venue 8 Pro and Venue 11 Pro, out of which the first three are now available for purchase from Dell store, and the last one will ship in November. The Venue 7 and Venue 8 price starts at $149.99 and $179.99, respectively. The Venue 8 Pro costs from $299.99.
Dell Venue vs. Venue Pro Tablets
The Venue 7 and Venue 8 are Android-powered tablets with modest yet capable hardware and an attractive price to match. Both slates run Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, upgradeable to KitKat. Except for the screen size and a choice between 16 GB and 32 GB of storage on the 8-inch model, while the 7-incher comes only with 16 GB of memory, both devices are fairly identical.
The slates pack dual-core Intel Atom chips and work with 2 GB of RAM and offer WXGA 1280 x 800 resolution. There is also microSD slot for memory expansion, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS navigation.
The Venue 8 Pro, on the other hand, is a Windows 8.1 tablet. The device has the same 1280 x 800 display as Android models, however, with an Intel quad-core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz and Intel HD Graphics GPU it has more power to offer.
In terms of memory you get 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of on board storage. The tablet is also equipped with a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 1.2-megapixel front-facing webcam. For additional $34.99 you can also grab Dell’s Active Stylus.
