Dell Venue 8 7000, The World’s Thinnest Tablet With Real Depth Is Now Available
“Thin is in” these days, and how would you feel about owning the world’s thinnest tablet? Which tablet you ask? I am referring to the newly released Dell Venue 8 7000. Yes! The tablet which was revealed a few months ago is finally available in the market.
Features of this tablet are pretty decent but before we get to that, I would have to say that I am kind of disappointed with its name. Dell Venue 8 7000? Really? Device as beautiful as this surely deserves better. I feel bad Venue 8.
Now that I have that off my chest, let’s dive into the details for this awesome gadget.
The Venue 8 comes in at 6mm, which probably gives Dell the right to call it the thinnest in the world. For all your viewing needs, this tablet contains a massive 8.4-inch screen with a 2560×1600 edge-to-edge display.
On the back of Venue 8, you’ll notice a very familiar logo. No, it’s not Dell’s. The logo is the one we usually see on our laptops. Yes, it’s Intel and it’s inside Venue 8.
The tablet has a modified quad core processor with 2.3GHz processing power and uses Android 4.4 Kitkat as its operating system.
Venue 8 is perfect for playing your favorite games, using the latest apps, watching movies or listening to music. All of your content will be stored on 16GB of built-in memory. Which I believe will not be enough for the majority of us.
Last year, when this device was revealed, it was believed that it won’t be featuring a MicroSD card slot. To everyone’s surprise, it does. Venue ships with the ability to be upgraded to 512GB of space via MicroSD. Surely this will be a huge relief for many, who are looking forward to picking up this product.
There was a time when taking pictures with a tablet wasn’t something which was considered as “cool.” It just looked weird to be honest and I mostly avoided this in public. However, things have changed and taking selfies from a tablet is much more acceptable now.
When it comes to the camera of Venue 8, it’s something which Dell seems to be very proud of. That’s because Venus 8 has become the first tablet to use Intel’s latest 3D camera — the RealSense Snapshot 8MP Camera, with two 720p depth sensors.
Every single picture you take, gets attached to a depth map, which can later be used for various editing needs, such as adjusting brightness and changing focus etc. Dell states:
In addition, customers will be able to do simple linear or area measurements with a photo, like measure the length of a sofa or the area of a room.
Now, as for the price of this tablet, it will set you back $400. If you wish to purchase, it’s available on Dell.com.
