Dell Venue Line of Windows and Android Tablets Revealed

Dell introduced a new series of tablets today under the Venue brand, which includes Android and full Windows devices. The Dell Venue 7 and Venue 8 run Android  and come in at aggressive price points, while the Venue Pro 8 and Venue Pro 11 run full Windows software.

The Dell Venue 7 and 8 Android tablets offer 4G connectivity and run the slightly-outdated Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS. The 7-inch model costs $149 while the 8-inch model costs $179, which at least makes them aggressive at a price level.

Dell boasts that the Venue 11 Pro offers the biggest display of any tablet on the market today. It packs an Intel processor, offers 17 hours per battery charge and costs $499. Dell will also sell a number of accessories for the device, including a $99 dock, a specially designed case with a built-in fully-functioning keyboard, and a travel keyboard that transforms the device into a full laptop.

Dell also unveiled the Dell Venue 8 Pro, which offers a high def IPS screen and runs Windows 8.1. The device offers LTE connectivity, wireless keyboard options, and a textured grip design. The 8-inch Windows tablet costs $299. Both Dell Venue Pro devices work with specially designed stylus pens. The company also noted that it has no plans to refresh its line of Windows RT devices.

All Dell Venue tablets will also come running Pocket Cloud, an cloud storage service that automatically transfers saved files across both Android and Windows devices.
