New Dell Venue 8 Pro Comes With Atom X5 Processor, FullHD Display, For $449

Dell has updated the Venue 8 Pro tablet bringing its specs more than a notch up. Along with that, the recent Venue 8 Pro 5000 Series comes with a price to match, at $449 it's twice as expensive as some versions of the predecessor.

On the hardware end, the recent tablet features an 8-inch FullHD display, or rather WUXGA, as the 16:10 ratio results in 1,920 x 1,200 pixels. That resolution, however, seems to be optional, judging by the product page, so the recent and coarse 1,280 x 800 pixels might still be available.

What's definitely recent is the processor, which is the Intel Atom x5-Z8500 at this point, but we may be seeing the Z8300 at a later stage. There's 4GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) on board, and 64GB of built-in eMMC storage, no other options so far. There is a microSD slot for expansion, though, so storage shouldn't be an issue. Windows 10 Pro is standard equipment, but you could opt for Home, for $50 less.

Either way, you're getting a 5MP rear capturing camera and a 2MP front unit. More importantly, however, there's Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) 802.11ac with 2x2 antennas, and Universal Serial Bus (USB) 3.0 with Type-C connector. It's ready for cellular connectivity too, thanks to its microSIM slot, but we gather that will be optional as well. The Dell Active Pen is supported, but not part of the package - it typically goes for an additional $50, but Dell will knock $5 off its price if you buy it with the tablet.

The Dell Venue 8 Pro can be ordered now, but let's hope you're in no rush as will ship in 11-14 business days.
