Today Dell unveiled a new Venue tablet which has an 8 inch display and runs on Windows 8.1, but this isn’t the first “Venue” product that the company has created. The company made a couple of smartphones under this brand, unfortunately they didn’t turn out to be a big hit. Last year Dell announced that it was retiring the Venue brand, but after an year, they’ve brought it back, this time in the shape of a tablet. The Venue tablet was unveiled today at the Intel Developers Forum 2013, which is taking place in San Francisco, California.
Dell Venue has an 8 inch display which offers full HD 1080p resolution. The tablet is powered by Intel’s new Bay Trail processor, which the chip manufacturer also announced at this event. Intel promises performance and battery life improvement with the Bay Trail processors, so Dell’s new tablet is going to tout that, but we’ll only know how effective the new processors are once the device is pitted against its rivals. There’s a microUSB port used for charging and data transfer, while an HDMI is port is on hand as well for video mirroring. Not much has been revealed as yet about the tablet, Dell says that it will elaborate more about the Venue tablet on October 2nd.
