Dell Venue Pro 8

[sc:hardware-category ]A while ago I picked up an Acer W3, which apparently didn’t like the 3 foot plus drop from my nightstand 😉

The big crack from side to side of the screen pretty much made it necessary for me to find a new tablet.  fortunately Dell released their Venue Pro 8.

The W3 was pretty chunky, but work reasonably well.  The Dell is light and runs circles around the W3.

Highlights include:

  • Lighter.
  • Faster.
  • Brilliant display.
  • Standard USB charging.
  • A nice textured back for an easy grip.

Two little things of note:

  • The auto brightness is far too dim, you have to disable it.
  • The Windows button is in a little bit of a weird place, so if you join a domain and need to do a W+Power combo, it’s a contorted one-handed affair.
