Dell has unveiled a pair of Android tablets this morning. The new models are the Venue 7 and Venue 8 which are, as the names would suggest -- 7 and 8-inch tablets. The former is HD at 1280 x 800 and the latter is Full HD at 1920 x 1200. Both will be launching with Kit Kat and powered by the Intel Merrifield platform.

Aside from the display size (and resolution) much of the specs are the same for the Venue 7 and Venue 8. Beginning first with the remaining difference and we find the Venue 7 sitting with a dual-core 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z3460 processor and the Venue 8 sitting with a dual-core 2.1GHz Intel Atom Z3480 processor.

Both models will have 1GB of RAM, Intel HD Graphics (Imagination PowerVR G6400) and 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot for expansion.

The camera setup includes a 5MP on the back with a 2MP on the front. Both models will be available in black or red, and Dell will also be selling the Duo Tablet Case in a variety of colors. In addition to a WiFi only model -- there will also be an option to grab the Venue 7 and/or Venue 8 with integrated Intel LTE (with HSPA+ fallback).
