On Tuesday night, Dell began pushing a software update to its Venue 8 7840 that refreshes the device with Android 5.1 Lollipop. Dell didn’t stop with ushering in a new version of Android, though. The company also included bug fixes and improvements to certain areas of the tablet. Processing for the camera’s depth capabilities, for example, has been improved to provide a richer experience after a photo has been taken.
Dell announced earlier today that it will launch its latest Android-powered tablet, the Venue 8 7000, in India on Wednesday, July 1. The slate will be available to purchase for ₹34,999 ($549) from it online store, which, to be honest, is a bit over the top seeing as you can pick up the exact same model from Amazon for $399.
Best Buy’s eBay shop has put up a fantastic deal on Dell’s well-equipped Venue 8 7000 tablet, shaving $50 off the list price. You can pick up the very capable 8.4-inch tablet for just $349.
The tablet is in new condition, sports 16 GB of internal storage, a 2560 x 1600 screen, and a speedy Intel Atom processor. It’s running Android Lollipop and offers one of the more compelling 8-inch Android tablet options, especially if you’re not a fan of Samsung’s TouchWizzed Tab S line. Read more
Picking up an Android tablet isn’t as simple as running to the store and grabbing a tablet. Android tablets range from all different brands and specs. Cheap ones tend to be low on the hardware spectrum, have a lot of stuttering when scrolling, and breaks easy if you were to drop it. You need to find a middle ground, where you can be confident in the quality of the product you bought.
So, which one is right for you? We’ve constructed a list of the top 5 best Android tablets to answer that question. These are the top 6 best Android tablets available in the market right now.
Dell is now rolling out the Lollipop update to all Wi-Fi variants of the Venue 8 7840 located in Brazil. In terms of added functionality, this upgrade transports the latest build of Lollipop to the slate, in addition to a truckload of bug fixes and stability improvements.

If you have had your eye on the Dell Venue 8 7000, now might be a good chance to grab one. Best Buy has it on sale for $369.99 ($30 off), plus they are giving you a bonus. That would be 1 year of Microsoft Office 365 Personal, which is a $69.99 value. On top of all this, they are including Free shipping.
The Office 365 subscription will include one PC or Mac plus one iPad or Select Windows Tablet. I am hoping they failed to mention Android in the notes since Microsfot Office is now available on Android tablets.
One of the Chromebook’s most successful markets is the classroom, so it makes sense that manufacturers are trying to get a foothold in that sector. The newest device to throw its hat in the ring comes from Dell in the form of a revamped Chromebook 11 designed specifically for use in the classroom.
The original Chromebook 11 was a solid device, but this time around the laptop has been tweaked to cater to students and teachers. The body is completely made out of durable plastic and the trackpad and keyboard are all sealed against spills and damage. The entire laptop has been tested, so it should withstand all kinds of pressures, temperatures, drops, and vibrations, which is absolutely what belongs in a classroom. Read more
