Dell recently announced the Venue 10 7000, the latest tablet in its premium Android portfolio. The Venue 10 has a distinctive, razor-thin profile that is based on the same stunning design as the Venue 8 7000, which was the “Best of Innovation Honoree” from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) at CES 2015.
The Venue 10 7000 features a sleek, futuristic design with a barrel edge making it easy to hold and carry, or slot into the magnetic, backlit keyboard that can position the tablet in five different configurations: tablet, slate, stand, tent or clamshell modes. Users can enjoy an immersive audio experience no matter how the tablet is positioned with MaxxAudio Mobile by Waves and front-firing stereo speakers. Like the Venue 8, the Venue 10 features the best tablet display technology available today, a brilliant 10.5-inch OLED 2560×1600 screen, a quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor, and the Intel RealSense snapshot depth camera, which takes a depth map for every picture captured. The tablet also features the intuitive Dell Gallery application with selective re-focusing and measurement functions, as well as smart albums to automatically organize photos.
The Venue 10 combines stunning design features with enhanced productivity for the office to provide a compelling option for the mobile workforce. Both the Venue 10 and Venue 8 will ship with Android 5.0, Lollipop, and will be enabled for Android for Work. This platform makes it possible for business and personal information to securely coexist on one device, creating a reliable method for the mobile workforce to use the tablets for work and play. Business data is separated and encrypted, so important corporate data is not accessible to personal applications. The platform leverages multi-user support in Android to create a managed profile with its own set of secure applications that can be provisioned and controlled by IT and wiped remotely without touching personal data. Dell will also be offering Office for Android on the Venue 10 and 8 7000 this summer, which will provide even more productivity and commercial capabilities on Venue Android tablets.
The Dell Venue 10 7000 will come out in the US and China later this month, in two different variations, 16GB and 32GB. Prices start at US$499 for the 16GB version, without the keyboard dock and goes up to US$629 with it bundled. There's no word on what the 32GB version will cost yet. With the American and Chinese releases soon, expect to hear more about the local version in the coming weeks.
