Dell Venue 7 and Venue 8 tablets now available

Making a return to Android, Dell announced a pair of Android tablets earlier in the month. Those devices included the Venue 7 and Venue 8 and along with some specs, Dell offered up some pricing details and said they would both be available for purchase on October 18th. So as we had been expecting, the Dell Venue 7 and Venue 8 are available for purchase beginning today.

Dell Venue 7 and Venue 8 tablets unveiled with Android 4.2.2

Following some earlier rumors, Dell has re-entered the Android world this morning. Specifically, to the Android tablet market with the introduction of the Venue 7 and Venue 8 tablets. As the numbers in the name imply, these are 7-inch and 8-inch tablets and both are IPS with a resolution of 1280 x 800. Otherwise, both are sporting relatively low price points and both are expected to arrive a bit later in the month.

Dell ships thumb-sized Android PC to testers

Merely days after Google revealed its Chromecast device, Dell has started shipping test units of its own take on the "computer on a stick" concept. Named Project Ophelia, the Android-powered thumb PC is aimed to be an affordable, lightweight PC alternative, according to Pund-IT principal analyst Charles King.

Dell waves goodbye to smartphone business

We don't see too much of Dell in the smartphone space these days, and it looks like that's only going to continue. The company has announced that it will be exiting the smartphone market entirely, as it wants to focus on its Windows PC and laptop business. Little surprise there, considering that Dell is a PC maker first, but it has dabbled in the smartphone space a few times in the past.

Dell exits the US smartphone market for good

In what's now more or less a formality, a Dell spokesman told PC World that the company has no intention of producing more smartphones for the United States market. While a few of its Android devices like the 5-inch Dell Streak gained some notoriety, the Venue line and others never caught on in Dell's home country, at least not enough to make them profitable. Dell is continuing to produce and sell smartphones in India and some Asian territories. The last we heard, Dell had partnered with Chinese search engine Baidu for a special edition of the Streak Pro.

Android is Pentagon certified, Joint Chiefs discover Angry Birds

A few months back the Department of Defense certified its first Android device, the now (and then) discontinued Dell Streak 5. Now it looks like the rest of the armed forces are getting in on the action. The Pentagon has certified Android 2.2 Froyo for use on all Department of Defense projects, and the Dell Venue has been approved for use in military applications. Classified information and proxy access can now be granted to that model of phone. It's likely that they'll get them in bulk from Dell.

Dell partners with Chinese search engine Baidu for Streak Pro

Dell's American Android ambitions may have soured after lackluster sales of the Streak 5 and Streak 7 tablets, but it's more than willing to take advantage of the rapidly expanding Chinese market. Since Google's ubiquitous presence isn't nearly as ubiquitous across the Pacific, it's partnering with search engine Baidu to deliver services to their latest creation, the Streak Pro. The phone will use the Baidu Yi platform, a fork of Gingerbread's open-source code that remains compatible with Android apps. Dell has effectively ended its Android products in America after it stopped selling the Streak 7 tablet through T-Mobile earlier this month.

Dell confirms no ICS for Streak 7 while Streak 5 gets Gingerbread

If you are a user of the Dell Streak 5 tablet, you will like that a new update is available for you. Dell released the official update to Gingerbread for the Streak 5 tablet this week. The official Gingerbread ROM is available for the tablet right now and it is a 155MB update. Apparently you need to have stock recovery version 350 installed on the tablet.

Lenovo commits to Android tablets after Dell abandons the Streak

OK, Dell Streak fans, this is your chance to speak up. No one? OK. After Dell stopped selling the Streak 7 tablet, essentially giving up on the Android tablet scene in America, many believe that it's preparing to transition to Windows tablets. A new 10-inch Windows 7 slate is already coming, and Windows 8 tablets should be available in late 2012 or 2013. Dell didn't confirm any definite plans. But either way, Lenovo appears ready and willing to become the PC manufacturer with the greatest presence in the Android tablet world.

Dell kills Streak 7 tablet

The Dell Streak line of Android tablets haven't been hugely popular with most folks choosing offerings from other makers. The sales of the smallest of the Streak offerings the Streak 5 were bad enough that Dell ended the tablet in August. Dell has now ended the larger sibling to the Streak 5, the Streak 7 reports StreakSmart.
