Dell Tablet Deals August 18

This doesn’t happen very often but today there are some Dell tablet deals to be had on two tablets at least, one with Android and the other one with Windows.

The first tablet on sale today is cut by $90, so that’s noteworthy, and that’s the 8.4-inch Dell Venue 8 (7000): http://www.amazon.com/Dell-Venue-Tablet-Intel-RealSense

This is the 8.4-inch OLED display tablet with 2560 x 1600 resolution, and the tablet is currently running Android 5.1. It famously has the 8MP rear Intel RealSense Depth camera, and a 2MP front camera. It’s powered by the quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor, has 2GB of DDR3 RAM, 32GB storage, 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1, and a 5900 mAh battery capacity. It is also one of the world’s thinnest tablets.

The other Dell tablet deal at this time in August is the Windows 10 2-in-1 tablet Dell Venue 10 Pro (5055):

This is a 10.1-inch detachable tablet, with a Intel Atom Z3735 processor, 2GB DDR3 RAM, and 64-bit Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 according to your own choice. It has a HD 1280 x 800 resolution, 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi support, a 1.2MP front camera, a 5MP rear camera, and a 10 hour battery life.

The sale is for the tablet only without a keyboard, which kind of misrepresent the whole concept of a 2-in-1. So that’s something to look out for. Similar 2-in-1’s with a keyboard, like the Asus Transformer Book T100 costs less than the Dell Venue 10 Pro on sale today. So personally I’d go for that tablet instead in this category.
