We recently took a look at Dell‘s newest line of Android tablets, including the Venue 10 7000 and the Venue 8 7000. We even took the 8-inch tablet for a test spin, which we found to be a solid offering from a company we do not usually associate with tablets.
Starting today, the 10-inch version, the Dell Venue 10 7000, is up for sale starting at $499.
Taking the approach that the Venue 8 is for play, the Venue 10 7000 is being promoted as the Android tablet you need for your work place. It even has an optional attachable keyboard dock, not unlike what you would find in the ASUS Transformer line of tablets.
Equipped with a 10.5-inch display at 2560 x 1600 resolution, this Intel Atom Z3580 powered tablet offers 2GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage expandable up to 512GB through a micro USB card reader, and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop.
The Dell Venue 10 7000 is priced fairly competitively, but is not in impulse buy territory. $499.00 will get you the base tablet with 16GB of storage. Adding the keyboard dock bumps things up to $629.00, and to get your hands on the 32GB model, which is only available with the keyboard dock, you are looking at $679.00. That’s laptop territory.
If you are interested in picking up the Venue 10 7000, head on over to the Dell website for more details.
What do you say, is a Dell Venue 10 7000 in your future?

It wasn’t too long ago that our own Taylor Martin reviewed the sleek Dell Venue 8 7000 tablet, and it seems as though the company has already released it’s followup device. Dubbed the Dell Venue 10 7000, this new Android-powered tablet features similar specifications and build to the Venue 8 7000, but with a few interesting additions.
For starters, the Venue 10 7000 is mostly the same when it comes to specifications. Like it’s younger sibling, the new device is powered by an Intel Atom Z3580 processor, 2GB of RAM and also has an 8MP rear-facing camera complete with Dell’s RealSense 3D technology. It has a big 10.5-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600. Thanks to that bigger screen, there’s more room to fit the giant 7000mAh battery. The tablet measures just 6.2mm thin, just .1mm thicker than the Venue 8 7000.
It’s easy to see the main difference between these two siblings is the chassis. While both tablets are extremely thin, the Venue 10 7000 sports a bulky cylinder on one of the long edges. That’s there so the tablet can connect with an optional keyboard, which Dell is selling for a hefty premium. The keyboard is backlit and runs off of the tablet’s battery, but Dell quotes the device for lasting up to seven hours on a single charge. The Venue 10 7000 is aimed at enterprise customers, as the tablet runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and Android for Work.
The tablet will launch in May in the United States, Canada and China for $499.00. If you’d like to tack on a keyboard to your order, you’ll have to pay $629.00. If you’re interested, be sure to check out our full review of its younger sibling, the Dell Venue 8 7000.
Dell has announced the bigger, better version of their Venue 8 7000 tablet. The Dell Venue 10 7000 tablet is keeping the weird naming conventions with a slight change for the bigger 10.5 inch screen. The specs are mostly unchanged from last time around, but Dell has a made a few improvements in the form of accessories and the battery.
The Venue 10 sports an odd cylinder on one of its edges that houses a battery and stereo speakers. The battery will supposedly last 7 hours on a single charge, and it also forms a dock for a keyboard that Dell is selling with the tablet. Once the keyboard is attached, you can swivel the entire device around like the newer convertible laptops that are available.
Other hardware includes a 2k screen, Intel’s RealSense cameras with a matching Atom processor, and 32 GB of internal storage. It’ll run Android 5.0 when it releases later this month, and you’ll be able to buy one for $499, or $629 if you want to spring for the keyboard with it.

The last time we heard from Dell was when they introduced the Venue 8 7000, and Dell claimed that it is the world’s thinnest tablet. Now Dell is back again with yet another addition, and this time it is the Dell Venue 10 7000. This tablet has a premium design and it seems that Dell is targeting business users with this tablet. It also features Intel’s RealSense 3D depth-sensing camera and a stunning 2560 x 1600 OLED display. As it is a premium tablet, its starting price is $499 which is kind of pricey for an Android tablet, but one just can’t ignore the amazing features the tablet offers.
It features a 7,000 mAh battery which will run smoothly for 15 hours. The tablet’s stereo speakers fit inside the thick cylinder that runs along one end, and also the battery is there as well. It is running on a Intel Atom Z3580 Moorefield processor with 2GB of RAM. Also, if you are interested, you can grab a $130 magnetic, backlit dock keyboard that can position the tablet in five different configurations: tablet, slate, stand, tent or clamshell mode.
The tablet will be available in U.S., Canada and China in May 2015.

You might not think of Dell as a big name in tablets — not on the level of, say, Apple or Samsung. In fact, though, the once-stodgy PC maker sells one of our favorite Android tabs, the Venue 8 7000, which won a Best of CES award and earned a strong score of 84 in our review. Now, the company is back with a 10-inch edition (the Venue 10), and it’s basically a blown-up version of the original, just with some improved ergonomics.
Other than size, what sets the Venue 10 apart from its little brother is the cylindrical-shaped battery attached to the bottom edge of the device, which is rated for up to seven hours. Look closely and you’ll see it also has stereo speakers built in. Basically, the Venue 10 looks a lot like Lenovo’s Yoga Tablets, except the hinge here doesn’t flip out to double as a kickstand. What you can do is insert the tablet into an optional keyboard, at which point you can use it you know, like a Yoga laptop, with “Tent” and notebook modes, etc. If I’m honest, that big, honking battery detracts somewhat from the Venue 10’s otherwise sleek design, but it makes the tablet easier to hold in one hand.
Aside from than that one, very conspicuous change, the Venue 10 features the same machined aluminum chassis as the smaller model, and is nearly as thin, at 6.2mm thick (versus 6mm on the Venue 8). The screen resolution is the same too (2,560 x 1,600), just spread over a larger 10.5-inch display. Also like the 8-incher, it includes Intel’s RealSense 3D camera setup, complete with an 8-megapixel main rear shooter and stereoscopic 720p cameras to capture different depth layers for each shot. What’s nice here, though, is that because of the Venue 10’s larger size, you can hold the tablet without obstructing the cameras with your fingers — something we complained about on the Venue 8.
Under the hood, the Venue 10 runs an Intel Atom processor, just like the Venue 8, except this time, it comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. Specifically, Android for Work, making the tablet much easier for businesses to issue to their employees. In particular, Android for Work adds certain management tools that should please IT guys, including the ability to include a company-specific version of the Play Store with a restricted app selection. At the same time, Android for Work allows you to keep your personal and work data separate, so you could still download consumer-grade apps from the regular Play Store; you’d just need to use Google Play for Work to get company-approved applications.
The Venue 10 will be available later this month, starting at $499 without the Bluetooth keyboard, and $629 with. In the US, at least, you’re looking at 32GB of built-in storage, though in other countries there will be a 16GB option too, presumably at a lower price. Either way, there’s a microSD slot on board that can accommodate cards as large as 512GB — you know, if you can even find one with that kind of capacity.
As laptops continue to become more powerful, there’s still plenty of room for an all-in-one desktop in your life. Their slim profile makes them a bit more desk- or living room-friendly than a typical tower PC, while the large built-in screen is great for getting work done or watching a movie. To help you decide which units are worthy enough to grace your office or den, we’ve taken a look at reviews from trusted critics to find systems that can handle a variety of tasks, including editing documents, watching movies and even some hardcore gaming. Check out the gallery below to see five of the better all-in-one desktops available now, as well as one we’d rather you didn’t buy.
If you have had your eye on the Dell Venue 8 7000, now might be a good chance to grab one. Best Buy has it on sale for $369.99 ($30 off), plus they are giving you a bonus. That would be 1 year of Microsoft Office 365 Personal, which is a $69.99 value. On top of all this, they are including Free shipping.
The Office 365 subscription will include one PC or Mac plus one iPad or Select Windows Tablet. I am hoping they failed to mention Android in the notes since Microsfot Office is now available on Android tablets.
The Venue 8 is one of the thinnest tablets in the world. It’s only 6.1 mm thick, but it also packs very high-end specs. It includes an 8.4-inch OLED Quad HD (2560 x 1600) display, a 2.3 GHz Intel Atom processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, and an 8 MP rear camera with Intel’s RealSense technology for scanning real-life objects in 3D. About the only downer of this tab is that it’s running Android 4.4.2 KitKat, but that isn’t a big deal since most top tier apps are sporting Material Design these days.

Dell has just announced two new education-oriented devices: a new version of their popular Chromebook 11, as well as an Android-powered tablet called the Dell Venue 10. Both devices are made to withstand bumps, drops and spills that are part of a student’s everyday life. Both the Chromebook and the tablet feature a rubberized trim to absorb shock if a student were to accidentally drop them.
The new Chromebook 11 features an 11.6-inch anti-glare display with 1366 x 768 resolution, and the option to choose between a normal or touchscreen display. It also comes with a liquid-resistant keyboard and touchpad, a front-facing HD video webcam, and a 2.16GHz Intel Bay Trail-M Celeron processor. It comes with 16GB of on-board storage, 2GB or 4GB of RAM, and a battery that can last up to 10 hours on a single charge. The Chromebook 11 will also feature an “activity light”, which will allow teachers to “monitor student activity and facilitate more meaningful interactions, such as orchestrating student groups or facilitating quick quizzes and polls.” It even has a new 180 degree hinge design that will reduce stress at the hinge of the device.
The Dell Venue 10 will have a 10.1-inch HD display and will run Android 5.0 Lollipop. Teachers also have the option to purchase a reversible keyboard to go along with the tablet. The keyboard can be positioned five different ways, including a clamshell position for test scenarios and to use as a laptop, tent and stand positions to promote collaboration and sharing, and a slate configuration for keyboard storage while in tablet mode. Teachers can also purchase an optional active stylus to go with each tablet. The Dell Venue 10 will be one of the first tablets to be certified with Google Play for Education, which will allow teachers to instantly transfer data to students using NFC. Unfortunately, we don’t have exact specifications for the Venue 10 quite yet, so we’ll be sure to update this post when more specs surface.
The Chromebook 11 is now on sale for $249.99 through Dell’s website. The Venue 10 tablet will go on sale starting at $329.99 sometime in the Spring. If you’re interested in the keyboard, the tablet/keyboard combination will run you $379.99.
One of the Chromebook’s most successful markets is the classroom, so it makes sense that manufacturers are trying to get a foothold in that sector. The newest device to throw its hat in the ring comes from Dell in the form of a revamped Chromebook 11 designed specifically for use in the classroom.
The original Chromebook 11 was a solid device, but this time around the laptop has been tweaked to cater to students and teachers. The body is completely made out of durable plastic and the trackpad and keyboard are all sealed against spills and damage. The entire laptop has been tested, so it should withstand all kinds of pressures, temperatures, drops, and vibrations, which is absolutely what belongs in a classroom.
The hardware is typical for a Chromebook, including just over a 720p screen, AC WiFi connectivity, and a 10 hour battery life. One standout point with the Chromebook 11 is the 180 degree hinge that attaches the keyboard and screen, so if students want to completely flatten the laptop, they can. There is also a glowing light on the back of the computer that can be lit up to different colors, which is supposedly a tool for teachers to use when a student has something to add to a discussion, wants to ask a question, or something similar. Plus you’ll have Google’s Apps for Education on board with that, too.
The laptop can be outfitted with a few different options, including a matte screen and a touch screen, so if you’re interested in using it for something outside of the classroom, you can. It might not be as appealing as some of the other Chromebook options, but if you need something durable, this might be your best option.
