First Look: The Dell Venue 7 and 8 mark Dell's return to Android tablets

1:23 /

Dell finally moves beyond the Streak with two new Android tablets.

Hey, guys. This is Eric Franklin from CNET.com. I'm in San Francisco where Dell has just shown me their new line of Venue tablets, including two Android tablets, the Venue 7 and Venue 8. The Dell Venue 7 and Venue 8 are 7- and 8-inch tablets running Android 4.2.2. That's right. Dell is making Android tablets again. Aside from the screen and body size, the tablets are practically identical. The 7-inch will ship with 16 gigabytes of storage for $149, while the 8-inch starts at $189 with 16 gigabytes of storage. There will also be a 32-gigabyte version of the Venue 8 at an, as of yet, undisclosed higher price. The two tablets will be available in both red and black colors. Dell says that a KitKat upgrade will be available some time after the OS is ready. There are both front and back cameras, a microSD slot. And Dell says to expect both WiFi and LTE versions. Look for more on the Venue 7 and 8 soon. I'm Eric Franklin, and this has been the first look at the Dell Venue 7 and 8.
