Dell announces the Venue 10 7000, the company’s new 10.5-inch Android tablet
It wasn’t too long ago that our own Taylor Martin reviewed the sleek Dell Venue 8 7000 tablet, and it seems as though the company has already released it’s followup device. Dubbed the Dell Venue 10 7000, this new Android-powered tablet features similar specifications and build to the Venue 8 7000, but with a few interesting additions.
For starters, the Venue 10 7000 is mostly the same when it comes to specifications. Like it’s younger sibling, the new device is powered by an Intel Atom Z3580 processor, 2GB of RAM and also has an 8MP rear-facing camera complete with Dell’s RealSense 3D technology. It has a big 10.5-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600. Thanks to that bigger screen, there’s more room to fit the giant 7000mAh battery. The tablet measures just 6.2mm thin, just .1mm thicker than the Venue 8 7000.
It’s easy to see the main difference between these two siblings is the chassis. While both tablets are extremely thin, the Venue 10 7000 sports a bulky cylinder on one of the long edges. That’s there so the tablet can connect with an optional keyboard, which Dell is selling for a hefty premium. The keyboard is backlit and runs off of the tablet’s battery, but Dell quotes the device for lasting up to seven hours on a single charge. The Venue 10 7000 is aimed at enterprise customers, as the tablet runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and Android for Work.
The tablet will launch in May in the United States, Canada and China for $499.00. If you’d like to tack on a keyboard to your order, you’ll have to pay $629.00. If you’re interested, be sure to check out our full review of its younger sibling, the Dell Venue 8 7000.
