Dell Venue 8 7000 "world's thinnest tablet" announced


Dell Venue 8 7000

Dell has taken the wraps of what it is calling "the world's thinnest tablet," the Dell Venue 8 7000.

At just 6mm thick, those claims certainly appear to be legitimate. It's a good 0.6mm (a significant amount) thinner than the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4, for example, while the recently announced Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact can only get 0.2mm closer.

The computer giant chose to showcase its slim new tablet at the Intel Developers Forum, and it had more than just the Venue 8 7000's skinny body to speak about.

It also sports an 8.4-inch edge-to-edge (though there's a chunky band along the bottom) OLED display with a 2560 x 1600 QHD resolution.

Another interesting specification is the Dell Venue 8 7000's camera. It's an Intel RealSense Snapshot Depth Camera, which means that it can measure the 3D depth of your images. This could potentially allow you to measure objects in a photo or even adjust the focus, rather like the HTC One M8.

Added to this, the Venue 8 7000 has a smart albums feature that will "enhance and organize every amazing image," according to Dell.

Separately, Intel has confirmed that the tablet will run on an Intel Z3500 quad-core CPU.

That's about it for specs at the moment, other than the fact that the Dell Venue 8 7000 will run on Android.

Expect the Dell Venue 8 7000 to launch some time before the end of the year.

Shame this is Android only, the design and specs (and chip!) would all result in quite a nice Windows 8 Tablet, as long as a good clamshell keyboard was offered

How about making it 2mm thicker (which nobody will notice) and fit a larger battery - then it can be the world's longest lasting tablet between charges??!!

Nobody really cares about the thickness that much. Everybody cares about battery life.
