It appears that we’re dealing with a segment that has a growing popularity: 8 inch Windows 8 tablets. The latest such newcomer is the Dell Venue 8, shown in action below. It was caught on camera recently and I bet we’re going to be seeing more of these videos, since IDF 2013 is taking place these days.
The product weighs 400 grams, works very fast, as you can see in the video and actually keeps some of the pleasant design lines of the Venue series. It does come off as a bit glossy and a suffering from glare and I can’t understand why people in the video keeping playing with the brightness so much.
The device seems to have a soft touch back, that might as well be metal, for all we know. The slate packs a Bay Trail T quad core processor, an IPS display with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, Windows 8.1 and it will come with a stylus and keyboard options. There will be a special Venue event on October 2nd in New York, so we’ll learn more there.
