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.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
