Dell Venue 7 and 8 updated.

The Nexus 7 is arguably the "king" of the small tablet market, and Dell aims to change that, with updated iterations of its Venue 7 and Venue 8 tablets.

Both the new tablets are aiming to be and affordable blend of specs and build quality, featuring a smart, if bland, design with flat sides, and wide bezels flanking the display. The back is made with a "grippy" material to aid single handed use.

On the topic of displays, the Venue 7 offers a 7 inch IPS panel with a resolution of 1280 by 800, while the Venue 8 offers an 8 inch IPS panel with a resolution of 1920 by 1200.

Both devices use an Intel Atom processor, with the Venue 7 using the Z3460 clocked at 1.6GHz, while the Venue 8 uses the Z3480 clocked at 2.1GHz. These are both dual core SoCs.

Both also come with 16GB of storage, which is expandable via MicroSD (up to 64GB). In addition, both have a 4550mAh battery, which should be more than enough to get through a day or two.

For those desperate enough to have to resort to using a tablet camera. have no fear. Both tablets are equipped with a 5 megapixel rear camera, and front facing cameras with a resolution of 1 megapixel for the Venue 7, and 2 megapixels on the Venue 8.

Pricing is affordable, with the Venue 7 costing $159, and the Venue 8 costing $199.
