Dell is probably not the first name that comes to mind when thinking about Android tablet devices, but the company hopes to change that. The Dell Venue 8 7840, which has been in the works for a while, is finally available for retail purchase. The tablet can be purchased through Best Buy for $399. Dell brings a couple unique features to the table with the device that may make it worthwhile to look at.
First is the thin size of the tablet. At the rounding level, the Dell Venue 8 is the same thickness as the iPad Air 2 at 6.1 mm thick. Go beyond that first decimal place though and Dell is able to make their claim of world’s thinnest tablet. Looking to the width and height dimensions, Dell’s tablet comes with an 8.4-inch OLED screen that implements an “Infinity Edge-to-Edge” display which gives the device some thin bezels on three of four sides. Resolution is a nice 2560 x 1600. The Venue 8 comes with an Intel Atom processor running at 2.3 GHz, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage which is expandable via microSD. On the down side, the Venue 8 ships with Android 4.4 KitKat instead of Android Lollipop.
The rear-facing camera is the second unique selling point for the Venue 8. The camera itself is only an 8 MP unit, but it incorporates Intel’s RealSense technology. RealSense technology can scan a real-life object and generate a 3D scan of the object. The 3D scan can be used to pull depth information as well as generate 3D printable instructions. The Venue 8 is the first mobile device to implement this technology.
