In the lab: Dell's Venue 8 7000 tablet


— 10:55 AM on January 29, 2015

Another piece of hardware has arrived in our labs for testing. Say hello to Dell's Venue 8 7000, which is billed as the thinnest tablet on the planet.

The chassis is just 6 mm thick, compared to 7.5 mm for the latest iPad Mini. Dell hasn't skimped on the hardware, either. The Venue has a quad-core Atom SoC based on Intel's Moorefield silicon. That chip is backed by 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a Micro SD slot that can take memory cards up to a whopping 512GB.

So far, the most impressive element for me is the 8.4" display, whose 2560x1600 OLED panel delivers incredibly sharp, vivid images. The tablet also has an intriguing camera augmented by Intel's RealSense tech.

Look for a full review of this slender Android slate soon.
