CES 2015:Dell launched Venus 8 7000 world’s thinnest, 2k Display Tablet
Dell wasn’t much late in recognizing the growing mobile and tablet market, but the company has thus far, failed to provide users with a distinctive product. Earlier this morning, it took the stage at the ongoing CES event to change that with the Venue 8 7000, the “world’s thinnest tablet.” Highlights of the tablet include its high-resolution 2K display, 6mm thick-body, an option to have 512GB of storage via microSD card, and Intel’s all new Real Sense 3D camera.
The sleek-looking minimalist device doesn’t make compromises on the internal hardware. The Dell Venue 8 7000 sports an 8.4-inch display with 2560×1600 pixels resolution. It is powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Z3580 processor paired with 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage, which, as the company claims, can be further expanded to 512GB via microSD card.
Other features of the device include a pair of MaxxAudio Waves speakers and support for 802.11 ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and Miracast. The Dell Venue 8 7000 is powered by a 5,900mAh battery.
Besides the 2K display, the next interesting feature of the device is the 8-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front-facing sensors built on Intel RealSense 3D camera, the chipmaker’s depth-sensing camera technology. It lets users perform a number of advanced features such as changing the focus and altering the background color after you have the image has been taken.
Earlier in a separate event, Intel also demonstrated the Real Sense technology. In the demonstration, it showed off a camera mounted in the front of a mock home which recognized a person’s face using a feature called “True Key.” The company also said that many forthcoming laptops will be using this camera technology. The camera will also offer gesture and voice controls feature, letting one pause a video, or scroll down the screen by hovering hands above it.
The Venue 8 7000 is priced at $399 and will become available for sale beginning this month in select markets.
