Dell Venue 8 Pro
|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.
