Owners of the Dell Venue 7 and Dell Venue 8 will be happy to know that Android 4.3 has now started rolling out to most Venue owners!

So what’s new here? Although the update’s primary focus is new Android 4.3 features like restricted profiles, there are a few noticeable Dell specific changes as well. A full change-log has yet to be released, but I’ve personally updated my daughter’s Dell Venue 8 and found that not only has the camera received a few improvements when it comes to focus and picture quality, but the entire OS and even the touchscreen seem to be more responsive.

While the Dell Venue 7 and 8 are extremely close to providing a pure Android experience with very little manufacturer bloat, Dell’s latest tablets have been known to have a few annoying bugs that affect general responsiveness — so it’s good to see that Dell is addressing this. Now all Dell needs to do is hurry up and push out KitKat (one can dream at least)!

You should receive some kind of notification telling you that an upgrade is ready for your Venue tablet, but when in doubt, you can always check manually for the update under settings.

For other Venue owners that have updated to Android 4.3, did you notice any other improvements? Run into any problems with the update, or performance issues after upgrading? Let us know in the comments!
