Dell back with a 10-inch edition of its Venue 8 7000 Android Tab


Laptop manufacturer Dell does not have a many tablet products as Apple, Samsung or Lenovo but it is now making up for lost time by moving into the market with trendy products. Close on the heels of Venue 8 7000 which won Best of CES award, Dell has now launched the Venue 10 which is an enhanced version of Venue 8 7000. This improved version is larger in size and has a cylindrical battery attached to the lower edge that increases battery life by more than 7 hours and also has slots for setting up detachable keyboard.

The new cylindrical battery also has built in stereo speakers that are ideal for outdoors when ambient sound can influence tablet’s sound. The launch of windows 8 that is a tablet friendly operating system has led to growing demand for tabs that are slimmer and lighter than laptops and have similar features.

Design and Layout of the Dell Venue 10, 7000


Though the tab looks a little like Yoga Tablets of Lenovo its hinge does not flip out into a kickstand, you can attach the tablet into a keyboard and turn it into a regular laptop. The tablet which is slated for release in April 2015, has a slim body made of brushed aluminum and is ergonomically designed. As this version is targeted towards the business class it has responsive keyboard with a strong backlight that makes it easy to use in a dark room. Its keyboard cannot be attached to any other tablet as it attaches itself into to the battery extension from which it draws power.

Intel Atom processor powers the Venue 10 and it runs on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop operating system to give it super power to zoom through processes. The 2 GB RAM provides enough speed and capacity to run multiple applications while the camera application allows users to blur and brighten or add contract to pictures.

Display and Applications

The screen resolution of this tablet is the same as previous one at 2560*1600 that is spread across 10.5-inch display. It also contains Intel’s 8-megapixel Real Sense 3D camera with rear shooter and stereoscopic 720 pixel cameras that can capture different layers of each shot. The large size of the tablet makes it easy to take pictures without obstructing cameras with fingers while shooting at high speeds.

To make it easy to use for businessmen the makers have installed Android for Work management tools so company specific programs can be installed and access to certain work data can be blocked if stolen. But users can also personalize the tablet with consumer grade applications from Play Store or Google Play. With the Bluetooth enabled keyboard and 32 GB storage the tablet could put you back by $629 in the United States.
