Dell launches new tablet

Dell TabletGiant multinational Dell said it introduced a new tablet to the market and it’s running the Android operating system, not Windows.

The Venue 10 7000 claims to have the best tablet display on the market – it uses a 10.5 inch OLED 2560 by 1600 pixel screen, is powered by a quad core Intel Atom, and also uses Intel’s “Realsense” snapshot camera.

The machine is aimed at the commercial market and can be managed by IT staff so that they can create profiles for business use as well as fun stuff when an owner isn’t earning a buck.

The business data is encrypted and Dell said it will offer Office for Android for the machine later this year.

It doesn’t come cheap though – prices start at $500 and if you buy the optional keyboard, the total price will be $629.

It’s not available yet, but Dell said it will ship in May 2015.

To cover its options, Dell also has added its “education portfolio” as part of the package.
