Dell recently revived its Venue tablet series with new Windows and Android based additions. And now, the company has announced that the fresh models as well as the revised XPS 15 laptop are available for purchase in the US and various countries across the globe.
First on the list are the Venue 7 and Venue 8 tablets which run on Android. Both devices are powered by the Jelly Bean 4.2.2 platform and the company has promised an update to version 4.4 KitKat in the future. As their names depict, the former is a 7-inch slate, while the latter falls in the 8-inch category. Both, however, proffer HD visuals. They also share other common features such as Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, Intel HD Graphics and 2GB of DDR2 RAM.
The Venue 7 employs a 1.6GHz Z2560 SOC and the Venue 8 gains steam from a dual core Atom Z2580 clocked at 2GHz. Next up is the Venue 8 Pro which is an 8-inch Windows 8.1 based tablet. The touch panel on the front has a WXGA 1280 x 800p resolution and is accompanied by a 1.2MP HD webcam. On the rear, you’ll find a 5MP camera.
While the CloverTrail+ CPUs power up the Android slates, this once sports the latest Atom Z3740D processor that’s based on the Bay Trail architecture with HD Graphics. There’s 32GB storage and 2GB of DDR3L RAM for memory provisions. The device is also loaded with Office Home and Student 2013 tablet edition, Wi-Fi 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0.
The new XPS 15 packs a 15.6-inch Quad HD+ display in a thin and lightweight design. The heavy lifting is done by a 4th generation Intel Core i5 or i7 quad core processor, while graphics are in the hands of a discrete Nvidia GPU. For storage, there are options of 500GB and 1TB with SSD flash memory as well.
The Venue 7 and 8 are available for $149.99 and $179.99, respectively, while the Venue 8 Pro can be picked up for $299.99. The new XPS 15 has a starting price of $1,499.99 in the US.
