Dell reckons it'll last for around eight hours on a charge – not bad for a tablet running a full desktop OS.</p> <p>The Intel Bay Trail processor differs fundamentally from the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/qualcomms-new-snapdragon-800-chip-brings-4k-video-smartphones/news">Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip</a> that is expected in Microsoft's Surface Mini (and which we'll be seeing seen in the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/amazon/meet-kindle-fire-hdx-amazons-tablet-steroids/news">7in Kindle Fire HDX</a> very soon). It uses a 64-bit x86 architecture, allowing it to run all that classic Windows software and Steam games you already have. The Snapdragon, meanwhile, is a 32-bit ARM-based chip, which can only run the RT version of Windows 8.1 - and those classic desktop apps are a no-go. Bit of a win for the Venue 8 Pro, then.&nbsp;</p> <p>The well-built 8.9mm thick slate features an 8in IPS display (no word on resolution yet).&nbsp;Dell is calling it 'enterprise ready' with Windows 8.1 installed and active pen and keyboard accessories to help make it a mini desktop replacement.</p> <p>There's also a larger 11in Dell Venue 11 Pro on the way with Intel Core i5 Haswell processor, up to 8GB of RAM and 'biometrics' option which we assume will be a fingerprint scanner.</p> <p>Dell hasn't confirmed a price or release date for the Venue 8 Pro yet, but it will certainly be available long before Microsoft's mini-tab shows its face.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DellVenuePro8HO1.jpg?1384181116" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DellVenuePro8HO2.jpg?1384181116" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/dell/dell-venue-pro-8-beats-microsoft-surface-mini-punch/news#comments Dell Surface Mini Tablets Venue Pro Wed, 02 Oct 2013 17:05:23 +0000 Jools Whitehorn 1427370 at http://www.stuff.tv Dell venue Pro video review http://www.stuff.tv/video/reviews/dell-venue-pro-video-review <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> With its robust build quality, hefty 4-inch AMOLED screen and unique portrait-sliding keyboard, is the Windows phone 7-toting Dell venue Pro as good as the rest of the WP7 family? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="373" height="268" title="Dell venue Pro" alt="Dell venue Pro" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Dell-venue-Pro.png?1371118325" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper brightcove-player-wrapper"> <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="http://admin.brightcove.com/js/BrightcoveExperiences.js"></script> <script src="http://admin.brightcove.com/js/APIModules_all.js"></script> <div class="brightcove-player"> <object id="myExperience-955386361001" class="BrightcoveExperience"> <param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" /> <param name="playerID" value="" /> <param name="playerKey" value="AQ~~,AAAAEgPmGlk~,Fzd-TvXcznw-P3piHaryQBMeIzWITldz" /> <param name="isVid" value="true" /> <param name="isUI" value="true" /> <param name="dynamicStreaming" value="true" /> <param name="@videoPlayer" value="955386361001" /> <param name="autoStart" value="" /> <param name="htmlFallback" value="true" /> <param name="includeAPI" value="true" /> <param name="templateLoadHandler" value="brightcoveTemplateLoaded" /> <param name="width" value="640px" /> <param name="height" value="360px" /> </object> <!-- This script tag will cause the Brightcove Players defined above it to be created as soon as the line is read by the browser.
