Dell Venue 8 7000 Is Pretty Awesome (Hands-on Video)



You thought the new Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, which measures in at just 6.4 mm, was super-thin? Then say hello to the Dell Venue 8 7000, the world’s thinnest tablet. Measuring only 6mm thick, the new tablet is coming with some pretty interesting features for all the shutterbugs out there.

In case you haven’t realized it, the upcoming Dell tablet is thinner than both the Apple iPhone 6 (6.9mm) and iPhone 6 Plus (7.1mm). The Atom-powered Dell Venue 8 7000 is very pretty having an aluminum unibody shell and an 8.4-inch OLED display with a Quad HD (2,560 x 1,600) resolution. That means the pictures on that screen will be very beautiful and crisp. Things will probably look better on the larger display than on the 5.5-inch LG G3. The device will be running Android.

You will be reminded of Sharp’s Aquos Crystal handset when you look at the front of the Dell tablet. The Venue 8 7000 has very little bezel on three of its sides, while on one of it’s sides there is less than 1 inch of bezel where there’s a speaker and front cam. You can use that bezel to hold the device.


The Venue 8 7000 will be coming with the RealSense depth-mapping tech from Intel. There will be three rear cameras on the Venue 8 7000 and Intel’s photo tech will allow you to play with features like post-capture refocusing, and depth info will help to measure space accurately and exclude color of different things you see on an image.

The device will be available “in time for the holidays”, but there haven’t been any hints about how much it will cost. We will let you know as soon as more details pop up. In the meantime, check out the videos below to see the Venue 8 7000 in action. It’s pretty impressive.
