Dell returns to Android with the Venue 7 and 8, starting at $149

Aside from screen and body size, the Venue tablets are practically identical. The 7-inch tablet will ship with 16GB of storage for $149, while the 8-incher starts at $189 with 16GB of storage. There will also be a 32GB version of the Venue 8 available at an as-yet-undisclosed higher price. The two tablets will be available in a choice of red or black chassis.

Each tablet houses a 2GHz Clover Trail processor, with a 1,280×800-pixel-resolution IPS screen. Dell says the tablets will ship with Android 4.2.2, but that an upgrade to KitKat will be available sometime after the OS is ready.

The Venue 7 has a front-facing WGA camera and a 3-megapixel back camera, with the Venue 8 receiving higher-quality shooters, including a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and 5-megapixel rear camera.

Both include a microSD slot and Dell says to expect both Wi-Fi-only and LTE versions.  More
