Dell doesn’t usually impress us with its Android-powered offerings, but its new Venue 8 7840 tablet could be far more impressive than the onslaught of new slates we see at CES this week. It’s powered by a speedy Intel processor, has four cameras, and takes the title of the world’s thinnest tablet to date, measuring just 6mm thick.


Its no secret that Dell has been struggling off late with most of its products failing to leave any remarkable impressions. The company’s PC sales are declining and its Android devices have failed to garner the interest of consumers. Today, in a bid to make its budget Android tablets more tempting, the company has unveiled hardware refreshed variants of Venue 7 and Venue 8 tablets.


Intel and Google today announced a bunch of new Chromebooks powered by Intel’s latest Bay Trail processors at their event in San Francisco. These new Chromebooks from Lenovo, Toshiba, Acer and ASUS will come in various form factors with major under-the-hood enhancements. 

Dell Venue 8

The Dell Venue 8 was launched in October last year as one of the few Intel-powered Android tablets on the market. The American manufacturer is now offering a decent deal on the device that waives $50 off the asking price for both the 16GB and 32GB variants.


HTC has confirmed that it will launch a new wearable this year in an effort to turn its fortunes around following a decline in revenue for two years running. The Taiwanese firm will also launch a second-generation One smartphone, and it will place a renewed focus on marketing.
