Dell has refreshed its Android tablet line-up and launched Venue 7 and 8 tablets for the global markets. The company first made its dive in this segment with Streak tablets which did not garnet much of a response. The Venue range seems to be Dell’s way of entering the budget tablet space and thereby pitting itself against brands like Acer, Asus, HP, Amazon and Google’s Nexus.

The Venus 7 and 8 sports 7 inch and 8 inch 1280×800 pixels display running on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system. It packs a 2 GHz Intel Clover Trail chipset along with 1 GB RAM presumably. The 7 incher gets 16 GB internal memory, while the 8 incher will come in two 16/32 GB models and both will be expandable further via microSD slot. In terms of cameras, the Venue 7 and 8 comes fitted with VGA front, 3 MP rear and 2 MP front, 5 MP rear respectively.

However, there is no word on the battery build and no talk about SIM slot made available. All we know is, Dell has priced the 7 incher starting at $149 while the 8 incher will be available in the market from $189. The tablets hit shelves in US from 18 of this month and we are yet to confirm the tablet’s India plans.

Dell is the second PC major after HP to make its second coming in the tablet space and with PC market sales lowering quarter-by-quarter it is apparently clear that vendors are looking at alternatives, budget segment being of prime importance.
