New Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet with Windows 10 now available to buy in the US
Dell recently introduced a brand new Venue 8 Pro tablet, which is now available to buy in the US, directly from the company's website.

The new Dell slate is, unsurprisingly, more powerful than the older Venue 8 Pro, and it runs Windows 10 out of the box (unlike the old model, which, at launch, ran Windows 8.1).

The Dell Venue 8 Pro with Windows 10 sports an 8-inch display with 1200 x 1920 pixels, and is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom Z8500 processor clocked at 2.24 GHz. There's 4 GB of RAM on board, plus 64 GB of storage space, which can be expanded thanks to the presence of a microSD card slot. Dell says that the new tablet also has a micro SIM card slot, and LTE connectivity. Other features include NFC, a 2 MP front-facing camera, a 5 MP rear camera, and a USB Type-C port.

Dell is currently selling the new Venue 8 Pro for $399 (if you want Windows 10 Home on it), or $449 (if you want Windows 10 Pro). A stylus pen (called Dell Active Pen) can be bought for another $40. Any takers?

A small 8-inch tablet more professional than the fat iPad Pro!

Well done Dell, this is yet another proof that bastardized tablets are overpriced jokes . This is what the Alcatel OneTouch should have been, instead of running on some bastardized OS. Also, this has more ports than the pointlessly gimped Galaxy Tab Pro S, especially the future-proofing storage expansion port, and it even has Thunderbolt 3, whereas the Galaxy Tab Pro S is just USB type C about overpriced s**t.

Lol! I'm buying well upgrading to the iPad pro for consumption but I kinda want this do to what the iPad pro can't. If only it came with core m that is. But I only use Windows for playing games on my Mac

Tough to swallaw when the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 Windows edition is only $250 with the build quality of the ipad mini while this thing looks plasticky. I bought the first iteration and it was pretty good except the screen was terrible.

Windows tablets make mire sense than others to provide the seamless Windows experiences. That says many mobile websites do not work properly or do not function.

I have BB Playbook, HP Slate Win7 and Sony Xperia Z Ultra Android tablets and none of them work as well as my laptop. Tablets are just something that was invented to take people's money.

I'll wait to see a real world assessment of the stylus. My old Venue 8 Pro stylus sucks (when it works at all). It replaced a ThinkPad Tablet 2 which had the wonderful Wacom Penabled stylus but was too big and too heavy. I still hold out hope for an 8" ThinkPad (offered for a time in Europe).
