Dell Venue and Venue Pro Tablets Now Available to Purchase

Earlier this month Dell unveiled an army of new devices, including two new Android tablets, two new Windows 8.1 tablets, and a trio of new XPS laptops, putting its new products on display in a NY pop-up store. Today, most of those devices are officially available for purchase through the company’s website, while a few won’t launch until next month.

The Dell Venue 7 and Venue 8 are the company’s latest mid-sized Android tablets, designed to compete with Google’s Nexus 7 and starting at just $149 for the for the 7-inch slate and $180 for the 8-inch model. The Venue 7 comes with a 1280 x 800-pixel IPS display, a 2GHz dual-core Intel Z2580 processor, 16GB of storage and a microSD slot. The 8-inch version offers the same specs, but jumps up to 32GB of storage and comes in either black or red.

If you prefer Microsoft’s software over Android there’s also the Venue 8 Pro and Venue 11 Pro, which run a full version of Windows 8.1. For now, only the 8-inch model is available, starting at $299. The device comes equipped with an 8-inch 1280 x 800-pixel display, an Intel quad-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz, a 5-megapixel front camera, and a 1.2-megapixel front-facing shooter. For an extra $34.99 you can also pick up Dell’s Active Stylus.

Finally, there’s Dell’s power-house laptop, the XPS 15, which starts at $1499.99 for a Full HD display or $1,899.99 for an impressive 3200 x 1800-pixel Quad HD+ display. Dell offers a decent amount of customization for the computer, letting consumers choose between a Core i5 or i7 Haswell chip, a 1TB hard drive or 512Gb of solid-state storage, and the option to add voice control and NFC for a price.

If you were hoping to pick up the Venue 11 Pro, XPS 11 2-in-1 hybrid, or the refreshed touch-screen XPS 13 you’re still out of luck. Dell promises it will have more information on those products next month, though it’s unclear when they’ll actually hit the market.
