Dell is doing all they can to become the big brand it once was, and as such has unveiled various portable computer devices. They were a big deal back in the day when the desktop computer was big, but as more of us started going down the laptop route, things started to slip for Dell. However, the age of the tablet has been an even bigger issue for the company, but there is still some fight left in them.
With the tablet market increasing each year, Dell understands the importance of giving their customer’s choice, and feel the best way to do this is by offering them a dual-platform tablet. Dell Venue tablets will give users the choice of platform, so you can go for an 8-inch and 11-inch Windows 8.1 or a 7-inch and 8-inch Android tablet.
The Windows option is a little like the Surface because you also get a stylus and keyboard, which will help improve productivity. Choosing between the two will only be a matter of what platform you prefer, but if you are thinking of jumping ship, then we have a comparison video for you below.
We have the Dell Venue 8 for Android on the left and the Dell Venue 8 Pro for Windows 8.1 to the right. There are a few differences on the sides and front, and its overall design.
It is clear to see Dell is not a lover of Windows RT, which is why they went for Windows 8.1 instead because it performs much better on tablet devices. The price of the Dell Venue 8 Pro starts and $300 and the 11-inch model $500. The Venus 7 and 8 are not as capable, and the prices reflect this at $150 and $180 respectively.
All Dell Venue tablets will be available from October 18, apart from the Venue 11 Pro, as this will not be released until November sometime.
