The Dell Venue 8 Pro Windows 8.1 tablet was offered for $99 during “Microsoft’s 12 Days Of Deals” promotion, though quantities were limited. If you were not lucky enough to get the mini-tablet for even the $199 price it reverted to afterwards, a deal that lasted until the Microsoft Store ran out of supplies, then there is still a chance for a bargain.
Amazon has started offering the tablet for just $249.99 for the 32GB version — a saving of $50 compared to the official price. For the 64GB Dell Venue 8 Pro, you’ll have to shell out $313, which isn’t a bad price for the device either. By contrasts, the Microsoft Store currently lists Dell Venue 8 Pro 32GB for $279 — a $20 savings, but Amazon is knocking off even more.
In terms of specifications, the miniature tablet boasts an 8-inch IPS display, sporting a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels with 10-finger multi-touch support. Under the hood, the Dell Venue 8 Pro is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom Z3740D up to 1.80 GHz with 2 GB of RAM.
The tablet is available with two storage options — 32 GB and 64 GB, as well as a choice to expand it via a microSD card slot. Included in the package is Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 and Microsoft Windows 8.1 pre-installed, all out of the box. Other features include Intel HD Graphics with shared graphics memory, 5 MP rear camera, 1.2 MP front-facing lens, 2-cell lithium-ion battery, Wi-Fi 802.11a/g/n with Miracast enabled, and it weighs just 395g.
