Google snobs, you can now get your dose of Dell tablets
Dell freshens up tablet line with Android-powered Venue 7 and 8

Loved the Dell Venue Pro tablets, but not so much their Windows platform? Venue tablet appreciators can now go ‘droid.

Fed on KitKat, the tablets are plumped with better viewing experiences even when outdoors, with the Venue 7 packing a HD screen and the Venue 8 one-upping it with a full HD display. Not just for viewing stagnant images, the Dell Venues bump up the media experience with promising audio know-how from Waves MAXXAudio Pro. Just remember to keep it down on your commute.

The only drawback is that the new tablets pack dual core processors as compared to the quad cored power of the Windows-powered tablets. But the new line of accessories should more than make up for multitasking. This includes the Dell Venue Cradle, which lets you dock and charge the Venue 8.

Covers are also aplenty, with the likes of the 360-degree rotating Dell Venue Rotating Folio which orientates the Venue tablet in either landscape or portrait mode. Keyboard? Dell's got that covered with its Bluetooth Keyboard Folio, which also doubles up as a cover for the slate.

Pricing and availability for the Android tablets haven't been revealed, but don't worry, we're on top of that when the details are in.
