We’ve talked about Dell’s Windows 8.1 tablet already, but we didn’t really cover Dell’s coverage of the Android market. Well today is the day when we have to, because Dell has just released the two Android tablets they’ve been talking about for quite a while now. Both tablets run an Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS, that will most likely be updated to the 4.3 KitKat very soon.

Both tablets also feature a 1280×800 IPS display, with the mention that Venue 7 uses a 7 inch display while Venue 8 uses an 8 inch one. As for the rest of the specs, both of these tablets use Intel Atom Clover Trail+ processors, even though Venue 7 uses a slightly different configuration of the processor. This means that Venue 7 uses a dual core Z2560 processor that runs at 1.6 GHz, while the Venue 8 uses a Z2580 processor capable of speeds up to 2 GHz.

These tablets will cost around $150 for the Venue 7 and $180 for the Venue 8, which is somehow affordable at this point in time. Still, judging by the fact that both of them use a 5 megapixel / 2 megapixel camera, 2 GB of onboard memory, and 16 or 32 GB of storage, it is pretty much the price you would expect from such devices. These tablets also support Wi-Fi connections, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS connectivity, although they don’t support HSPA+ connectivity as the rumors said.
