Dell Venue 8 7000 – A Most Intriguing Android Tablet

At 6mm, the new Dell Venue 8 7000 is being billed as the world’s thinnest Android tablet, but it’s size isn’t the only attractive feature; it also has an incredible 2560 x 1600 OLED display and “the first RealSense depth camera integrated into such a small form factor.” Have you even heard about it? Well, let me tell you…

These are the final specs on the Venue 8 7000; we are still waiting on a final price and date we can get purchase one:

  • The Dell Venue 8 7000 will run Android KitKat (4.4), and it will have the latest high performance Intel Atom Z3580 (Moorefield) processor.
  • At 6mm, it is the world’s thinnest tablet
  • The screen is incredible in person and on the spec sheet! the Venue 8 7000 has an 8.4″ OLED (2560×1600) infinity edge-to-edge screen, with over 4m pixels (361ppi)
  • This is the first tablet released with the Intel RealSense Snapshot Depth Camera, “which captures a depth map for every picture taken.” This means you can use the camera to take measurements!
  • The Venue 8 7000 will have the Dell Gallery application “that enables 3D editing and measurements for photos, as well as a smart albums feature. Smart albums allow you to find photos using facial recognition and automatically creates albums by pulling photos from Dropbox, Picasa and Facebook together into one timeline”

It looks pretty cool, right? I’ve fondled one while here at DellWorld, and I want one. It’s too bad I can’t bring “mine” home now. 😉

A full announcement along with pricing and the actual release date for the Dell Venue 8 7000 should be coming soon; maybe by then it will have an easier to remember name!
