Back in late March 2012, Dell decided to retire the Venue and Venue Pro smartphones from the market. Both handsets ran Windows 7 and were far less successful than expected. Now, Dell brings back the Venue brand with a completely new line of Windows 8-powered tablets.

Neil Hand, Dell's VP of tablets and performance PCs announced at the Intel Developer Forum the revival of the Venue brand, this time as a line of Windows 8 tablets. During his time on stage at IDF, Hand revealed a Windows 8.1 tablet that sports the new Bay Trail processor.

This new Venue tablet has a Full HD display and features an HDMI out port. The device charges via micro USB and offers support for microSD. A docking port concealed by a flap is included as well. At last, the 5.0 MP back camera can be easily noticed in the image above.

Dell will share more details on October 2. If Intel is right, the Dell Venue tablet will cost around $200 and its autonomy will be outstanding, both thanks to the new Bay Trail processor.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
