    This is really great looking tablet.
    Price, design and dimensions are fantastic. Funny thing is those two images are looking different (back of the device) but both are looking great.

    I think DELL will be able to sell these inexpensive tablets to enterprises in good numbers. They also have tons of accessories like pen, touch keyboard, travel keyboard with 10 hrs battery, dock etc..

    I am equally excited about Dell event (2nd Oct) as I am about surface event. Hope other OEMs jump in.

    Now, Microsoft should Buy DELL and Blackberry and Merge it as DellBerry and concentrate in Enterprise sector

        Dell + Bing + Blackberry = Dingellberry

    That price is where it’s at. I hope this trend continues. The public just need to be educated properly about windows 8 and banish the misinformation so far.

    Amazing looking design, but the resolution kills it for me. I’ll buy either the Surface 2, pending how good it’s speed and performance is, or more likely the Nokia tablet. The Tegra 4 gives me pause, but it does have 4GB of RAM. The Nokia tablet has NFC, 3G, and 4G LTE, which the Surface 2 doesn’t, unless Microsoft surprises us. The Nokia also has the better chip, the Snapdragon 800. However, it has half the RAM of the Surface 2. On the other hand, it will be thinner and lighter.
    It’s a touch decision.

      LOL..It really is a “touch” decision! :p

    I love this resolution RATIO.

    1366 x 768 is stupid.

    Unlike Dell’s previous Android fail, this has potential.

      One thing for sure, each time a company try to leave their root and concentrate on something else they fail. So Dell should concentrate on building windows products.

    WOW! That looks gorgeous! Nice work Dell :)

    Dockingstation hopefully with LAN, HDMI und USB2USB3….
    I will buy a palett for our salesstaff and replace ipads and device per user…

  • CanGueler

    I´ll Keep an eye on that.
    The pricepoint is definitely appealling considering the specs

  • TheHumanOracle

    This thing will also be over triple the speed of the latest iPad.

    It’s about time the OEMs step up on the Windows 8 tablet hardware. It’s going to be hard to choose between a Surface, Dell Venue, or Nokia tablet now…

    • Lenn Liggins

      Lenovo also has a 8″ tablet coming out in Oct MIIX8 and it’s worth keeping an eye on.

  • Alex Keuano

    Where is Venue? First or second foto? They are different.

  • Vincent Haakmat

    I like this very much, especially since it runs 8.1.. Now I can finally retire my Galaxy Tab 7.
    I hope people do realize that any Bluetooth keyboard or other windows accessory will work on these tablets, since they’re full windows tablets. So accessories won’t be a problem for these babies

  • keith

    the specs are almost perfect. This should have bump to 1080p res. Bay Trail can support it. This XMas will be fun, Bay Trail and Haswell tables to choose from.

  • NGM123

    Wow, finally finally finally we see the start of the fight back. Android and Apple have had it all for so long but now MS is finally in the game.

    With this, the new Toshiba Encore, Nokia tablet and Surface 2, maybe just maybe those long suffering MS supporters, me included, might finally have something to cheer about.

  • Gromanon

    This is definitely a nice tablet! I will be in market for 8 inch this holiday, this definitely has potential to end up in my hands!
