You have to admit it: Dell has entered the Android tablet sector on tiptoe but, despite having a few terminals in the price list released within a couple of years, has managed to offer very attractive solutions. And among these, the Venue 8 7000 Series with AMOLED display and Intel Realsense camera is at the top. Too bad that something is broken.
If you try to visit the official website of Dell (the Italian as well as the USA), you will find that the American company has eliminated the tablet Dell Venue from its offer; They are no longer affordable, and will never be replaced by new models. No ads and official communications, as well as entered in the field, came out. It took only a few years to make this decision, the time necessary to understand that the business of the tablets with Android is going down (to zero in the coming months), and only the most active players in the sector (and Dell is not) could have the “economic strength” to renew.
Dell chose to leave the market, putting out of production throughout its lineup of tablet. And some signal had emerged in the past, since the launch of the same Venue 8 7000 was postponed several times before the official market launch.
Colleagues at PC World, which reached US leaders Dell, have confirmed that the company will focus only on terminals for productivity, hybrid 2-in-1-based Windows 10 and not on Android, the only ones which analysts the industry still recorded sales growth compared to the average of traditional PCs. But those who have already purchased a Dell Venue 7 and Venue 8 Venue 10 in the past should not worry because the company promised operating system updates for all tablets with Android.
Dell Venue 8 7000 is no longer for sale on the official website of the company, but – if you really look for it – you can still find it at retail partners at a price that touches the 300 euro. We note, however, despite the price, this tablet has an outdated technical configuration: an Intel Atom Z3580 Moorefield, who belongs to a family of chips that Santa Clara is “divesting” and Android 5.0.2 Lollipop that could never receive the ‘ update to Android 6.0 or later versions.
