The Venue 10 7000 has been added to Dell’s OLED tablet line up, which already includes an 8.4″ model (Dell Goes OLED on World’s Thinnest Tablet).
At 10.5″, the new tablet is the same size as the larger Galaxy Tab S (Display Monitor Vol 21 No 25) – just as the Venue 8 7000 is the same size as Samsung’s smaller OLED tablet. It also has the same 2560 x 1600 resolution, and is 6.2mm thick.
A depth-sensing Intel Realsense camera has been built in to the tablet, just like its smaller cousin. It can be used to recognise objects, measure distances and more. Dell has also added a keyboard accessory, which is attached at the bottom – along the thick cylinder that holds the battery and other components.
Dell will ship the Venue 10 7000 ‘in the coming weeks’. Users will be able to choose from 16GB or 32GB models, with 2GB of RAM and a quad-core Intel Atom (Moorefield) processor running Android 5.0. Dell said that it considered installing Windows, but the OS did not support the Moorefield processor or OLED display.
A 7,000mAh battery is used in the Venue 10 7000, which provides up to seven hours of battery life (not much for a product that is meant to appeal to business users – and a stark contrast to the 15 hours claimed when the tablet was shown off to press at a private event in March – TA).
Dell will begin selling its new tablet soon, for $500 (16GB), or $630 with the keyboard.
