Recent attempts by Intel to tame power envelopes of its Atom processors (codenamed "Bay Trail'), and laxed system requirements on Microsoft's Windows 8.1 culminated to Dell designing a new 8-inch class tablet running the two, under the now resurrected Venue brand.
The new Venue can be held across by one [biggish] hand. It comes with narrow long bezels, and thick short ones. Its 8.0-inch IPS display comes with full-HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution. Under its hood is an Atom Z3000-series "Bay Trail" SoC, wired to 2 GB of RAM. It runs Windows 8.1, and the company could be eyeing 10 hours of battery life on a full charge. Dell is expected to give out more details in early-October.
