Dell Venue 7 & 8 inch Tabs

For PC manufacturers like Dell, making the move to the tablet arena has not been easy. Their first venture, Dell Streak line up, had a very bad market reception owing to a poor display and lot of bugs at launch.  But times change and they have come out with a new line up, Dell Venue with 7-inch and 8-inch variants. With competitive pricing at Rs 10,999 (7-inch) and Rs 17,499(8-inch) , it will be interesting to see whether or not Dell manages to divert brand loyalty towards itself.
