Remember the Dell Venue Pro? It was an original generation Windows Phone device with a portrait slide-out keyboard. The phone looked really great, but after countless launch delays, and then bugs in the software, it became a flop. Dell has since abandoned the “Venue” name…until now.
At the annual Intel Developer Forum event Dell has announced a new Windows tablet. The device runs Intel’s Bay Trail processor, has an 8-inch display, and runs Windows 8.1 Pro. Dell has shied away from the tablet market in recent years, ever since they failed hard with Android. It’s nice to see them coming back, and this device should be a nice little (and powerful) tablet.
