Dell Venue 10 5000 / 5050 is a 10.1-inch Android 5.0 tablet with optional detachable keyboard dock. It’s got optional Full HD resolution too, and begins at $299 with 16GB storage:
It’s been a couple of weeks since it was launched, but now it’s finding it’s way to regular stores too. The best thing about it is the optional Full HD screen, while the worst thing is the price, since there are cheaper and better alternatives, like the 2560×1600 Asus Transformer Pad TF701, the outgoing Samsung Galaxy Tab S with keyboard, the top end Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet, or the great Lenovo Tab 2 A10-70, in my opinion the best value for money tablet on the market right now.
Underneath the Dell tablet is Android 5.0.2, a 1.33 GHz Intel Atom Z3735F processor, and 2GB of DDR3L RAM.
The 10.1-inch screen has a 1280 x 800 resolution on the 16GB model, and 1920 x 1200 display resolution on the 32GB model. So that’s the only difference between the two.
The keyboard dock is optional and adds another $50 to the price.
They have 1.2MP front cameras and 5MP rear cameras, Maxx Audio stereo speakers, a 32WHr battery, 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi support, and Bluetooth 4.0.
The problem of course is that you can get almost two tablets from Lenovo for the same price, so that makes it impossible to argue in favour of this tablet.
