We had heard that Dell was working on new Windows-based tablets, but it seems that Dell might have other platforms in mind, thanks to a brand new WiFi certification that has revealed the existence of a certain Dell Venue 8 tablet that will be powered by Android, which is according to the certification as seen in the screenshot above. As it stands not much is known about the Dell Venue 8 tablet running on Android, apart from the fact that it has WiFi b/g/n connectivity, and if the screenshot above is accurate, will run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
While not confirmed, the “Venue 8” name might also imply that the tablet could come in an 8” form factor, although its exact size remains unknown. It has also been speculated that there is a good chance that Dell could choose to use the Intel Bay Trailer processor for this upcoming tablet, possibly the Atom Z3740 clocked at 1.33GHz, or the Atom Z3770 clocked at 1.5GHz. Either way we’re not sure if and when Dell will announce this device, but if you’ve been a fan of Dell’s products and wouldn’t mind see the company attempt to break into the Android tablet market, be sure to check back with us at a later date to see if there are any additional details that can be had.
