Dell has had a troubled past in the mobile device game. It was one of the first to try out both 5-inch and 7-inch Android devices, but tried it at a time when the technology just wasn't refined enough to make a comfortable 5-inch device, and software wasn't ready for tablets. Last year, Dell killed its last smartphones the Venue and Venue Pro Windows Phone handsets, but now its time for the Venue to make a comeback...

Nice to see some action on the Windows front. MS still dont get it..with Baytrail and Haswell, RT is dead unless they can price it real cheap.

Hope the performance is nice. An RT would be just fine with it, as long as the battery last for a day.

Truth comes out later, no HDMI, and no 1080p
