Dell is no stranger to the tablet market, and after announcing plans to revive the Venue brand back at IDF, the company has come through. Today at a press event in New York City the company announced a pair of new Android tablets, the budget-concious Venue 7 and Venue 8.
Both tablets have pretty much the same specifications, including Android 4.2.2, 2 GB of RAM and a 2GHz Intel Z2580 CPU. The duo also feature a 1280x800 pixel IPS display, though the pixels are spread out across 7 or 8 inches depending on the tablet. The only other difference appears to be a slight disparity in storage, with the Venue 7 available only as a 16GB model, while the Venue 8 can be had in an additional 32GB size.
Dell definitely isn't going to turn many heads with the Venue 7 and 8, but they do get to toss their names once again into the Android arena. Both tablets are set to hit the market on the 18th of October, with the Venue 7 retailing for $149 and the Venue 8 for $179.
