New firmware update for Dell Venue 8 Pro improves stylus performance

Dell has released a new panel touch firmware update for Dell Venue 8 Pro 5830 running Windows 8.1 operating system. The update promises improved stylus performance.

Dell Venue 8 Pro is Dell’s first Windows tablet running full Windows 8.1 with an Atom processor. The latest update (Vendor version:, Dell Version: A02) is categorized as urgent and Dell recommends applying this update as soon as possible. Dell has previously released a firmware update in November 2013, followed by another one in December 2013. Three updates in less than three months is a great effort from Dell.  

All you need to do is download the 7MB firmware installer – 5830_Firmware_8T9WD_WN_1.0.4.2_A02.EXE – from Dell’s support site and follow the on-screen installation instructions.
