Dell Venue

Nearly three years ago when Windows Phone 7 launched one handset stood out amongst them all. The Dell Venue Pro was a device with a keyboard slider, but in portrait orientation. It was truly unique and one of the most interesting Windows Phone devices of all time. Unfortunately, its greatness was marred by buggy Wi-Fi and other issues. Now Dell is reviving the Venue brand, but not how you think.

Over at IDF in San Francisco, Dell took the wraps of their upcoming Windows 8.1 tablet. It also happens to be a mini tablet, measuring 8.1-inches. You’ll also find a 1080p display on the Venue, which is powered by Intel’s brand new Bay Trail processor. Which should provide a significant boost in both power and battery life. You have an HDMI out port for video, a microSD card slot to expand storage, docking port, and microUSB (to charge). Check out images at the source link below.

Dell plans to unveil more details on the tablet on October 2nd and presumably will be available a few short weeks later for the launch of Windows 8.1.

Anybody interested in an 8.1-inch tablet running Windows 8.1? Which tablets are currently in the running as your next?
