The Dell Venue 8 Pro offers a small-screen tablet experience with optional digitizer making it an intresting pro-level device. Baytrail-T at 1.33Ghz (quad-core) should make it faster than the Clovertrail tablets of 2012/2013 too. A great addition to the sub-10" segment.

Dell Venue 8 Pro Alternatives

ASUS Vivotab Note 8, 8.0", 380gm
With the Wacom digitizer this is going to appeal to a lot of people. The price is good and the specs match many of the other 8-inch Windows tablets so the only thing left is to read through the reviews to make your choice!
Toshiba Encore WT8, 8.0", 430gm
The Toshiba Encore is one of the first of the Baytrail-T PCs and one of the first of the 8-inch tablets. It falls under the Microsoft Small Screen program and therefore gets Office Home and Student, full version, included. At 480gm it should offer very consumer/consumption focused usage and the price, starting at 299 Euro, is extremely good.
Lenovo Thinkpad 8, 8.3", 430gm
The Lenovo Thinkpad 8 uses the high-end Baytrail-T platform and takes the specs to the max possible. FullHD screen and 128GB SSD is more than you'll find on the consumer Baytrail-T products.
Emdoor EM-i8080, 8.0", 355gm
The Z3735G is a 4-core CPU running at 1.33Ghz to 1.8Ghz which isn’t bad. There’s little in terms of disk space though – 2GB available to the user on the system shown in the video below although we’re sure the device will ship with a few more than that.
Lenovo Miix 2 8, 8.0", 350gm
The Lenovo Miix2 brings some interesting options to the table for 8.1-inch Windows tablets. Digitizer, 128GB storage, case and more. It starts at $299 for the 32GB version.
Acer Iconia W4, 8.0", 430gm
The Acer Iconia W4 is another 8-inch Windows 8.1 tablet but this has 10-point touch, an HDMI output, microSD card slot and micro USB making it interesting in terms of connectivity.
Toshiba Encore 2 8, 8.0", 380gm
The Toshiba Encore 2 8 is the first of the 2014 Windows 8 tablets on the refreshed Baytrail-T platform which is said to be smaller and cheaper for manufacturers. Performance is comparable with early 2014 Windows 8 tablets. The Encore 2 is lighter than the original Encore 8-inch but there's no HDMI and only a 1-year Office 365 package included rather than a full Home and Student licence.
