Dell announced today new models of its Venue 7 and Venue 8 Android tablets coming next month.
Dell Venue 7 and Venue 8 Tablets: Solid performance in an eye-catching design The updated Dell Venue 7 and 8 tablets enable people to experience enjoyable entertainment and productivity in an attractive, thin, and light design. Whether reviewing a presentation or kicking back to watch movies, the HD (Venue 7) and Full HD (Venue 8) screens deliver brighter viewing angles and a better viewing experience, even outdoors. Premium audio technology from Waves MAXXAudio Pro ensures great sound quality, especially when paired with the optional Dell Bluetooth Portable Speaker. Based on Android 4.4 “Kit Kat”, the tablets feature the latest Intel Atom Z3460 (Venue 7) and Z3480 (Venue 8) processors (“Merrifield”) to drive faster web browsing and media editing, contributing to a premium mobility experience at a price that’s pleasing to the wallet. The new Dell Venue tablets also feature an easy-grip design on the back, and both are available in red or black color options.
Dell says its updated tablets will be available on its site starting July 1st. The Venue 7 retails for $159.99 while the larger Venue 8 goes for $199.99.
In addition to refreshing its Android tablets, Dell also announced several accessories for its tablet. First off is the Dell Venue Cradle, which is a wireless charging dock for the Dell Venue 8; Dell says you can simultaneously use your Venue 8 while charging on the dock as you would expect.
Dell also announced several cases for its Android tablets: the Dell Duo Tablet Case and the Dell Venue Rotating Folio. The Dell Venue 8 will also have an optional Bluetooth Keyboard Folio case made specifically for it. Finally, Dell is selling portable Bluetooth speakers equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC connectivity.
Collect ’em all July 1st… well not the accessories, Dell says those are “coming soon” but doesn’t specify a release date. But those tablets are cheap and Android-y with some Dell love!
