Dell’s founder Michael Dell was born to a Jewish family in Houston, Texas. His family name came about as an alteration of the Yiddish word for Valley or Dale, which is Thal.
The Venue 8 700 features a RealSense “Snapshot Depth” camera. It is a 3D camera that offers depth and as Dell boasts it will “create a Z pixel for every X and Y pixel in the photograph.” This means that if you take a picture of someone or something then the tablet will be able to tell you how tall the object is based on its surroundings.
It has a bright 8.4-inch, edge to edge, 2560×1600-pixel OLED display and weighs only 0.7 pounds. Dell proudly states that the tablet comes with a 2.3GHz Intel Atom quad-core processor, in addition to 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a MicroSD slot that can expand storage by 512GB.
An optional Dell Cast adapter allows a user to project to a TV or monitor or turn a screen into your desktop. Then connect with a keyboard and mouse to use your tablet like a PC.
The Venue 8 7000 Tablet will be available for order from dell’s website within a week with a starting price of $399.
