Move over, iPad Air 2: Dell's Venue 8 7000 launches next month as the world's thinnest tablet

At 6.1 mm, Apple’s iPad Air 2 is the thinnest tablet in the world (from those that you can actually buy), but this will change come November - after Dell launches its brand new Venue 8 7000.

First showcased by Dell last month, the Venue 8 7000 is only 6 mm thin. Of course, it will be hard to notice the 0.1 mm difference between it and the iPad Air 2, but that’s not the point here.

Initially, Dell didn’t say how much the Venue 8 7000 would cost, and neither when it would be released. But now we know that the tablet will be available starting late November for $499 (at least in the US). Running Android KitKat, the Dell Venue 8 7000 sports an 8.4-inch OLED display with 1600 x 2560 pixels, and is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom Z3500 processor. 

On the back, the new tablet has not one, not two, but three cameras. There’s a main 8 MP camera, alongside other two secondary cameras next to it. The slate uses Intel's RealSense 3D technology (find out more about it here), allowing you to take 3D photos and videos that you can add interesting effects to. Other features include stereo speakers, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of internal memory.

What do you think, can Dell's new Android slate become the next big thing in Android land?
