I was asked for my opinion on the price of the Dell Venue 8 7000 just after it was announced and all I could think of was the nice looking Lenovo Tab S8 which is very similar, for about $199. After handling the Dell Venue 8 7000 I now see a product worth much more than that. The amazing OLED 2K screen is punchy and sharp. The 6mm thin design is light and stylish and the 3 additional Realsense snapshot cameras offer some interesting options for photographers. In this video you’ll see some of those features being demonstrated.
After talking to a number of people about the Dell Venue 8 700 I know know the following.
- It will be available in November.
- There will be an LTE version. (Intel 7260)
- It runs on Merrifield (Intel |Z35xx-series)
- The screen is 2K resolution OLED
- The base configuration will be 2GB RAM and 16GB storage
- An SDK will be released but it’s looking like early 2015 before developers can create apps
