The New Dell Venue 8, Dell’s upgraded 8-inch Android 4.4 KitKat tablet with the Intel Merrifield Z3480 processor is now available for order with the price starting at $199:
The New Dell Venue 8 as Dell calls this tablet, is the second iteration of the Dell Venue 8 that was first launched in October 2013. And the second version does see some significant upgrades.
The most interesting happening is the upgrade from a mere HD display with the former 1280 x 800 resolution to a Full HD display with 1920 x 1200 resolution. Another change is the new processor, where the old Intel Atom Z2580 processor have been replaced by the new Intel Merrifield Z3480 processor, even if it is still a dual-core processor.
In addition it is now running a quicker 1GB DDR3 RAM over the former DDR2 RAM. Entry storage capacity is 16GB, which is then priced at $199.
The closest competitor for this tablet is the Asus MeMO Pad 8 (ME581), for those looking for a tablet with specs that are are equal or higher.
