On September 9th the whole world was hooked up to their television, smartphone and tablet screens to watch the LIVE unveiling of iPhone 6 and the Apple Watch. The craze was such that the whole world almost didn’t care what else was happening in the world of technology and due to that they ended up missing Dell’s latest innovation. Dell on Tuesday introduced a new Android Tablet at Intel 2014 Developers Conference in San Francisco. The device was introduced to the world by Michael Dell himself.
The new Dell Venue 8 7000 Series Android Tablet with Intel® RealSense™ snapshot is the world’s thinnest tablet measuring only 6mm in thickness and will be available in time for the holiday season. Intel RealSense snapshot is an enhanced photography solution that creates a high-definition depth map to enable measurement, refocus and selective filters with a touch of a finger. It will introduce new capabilities and new ways of using the tablet, opening up a new creative horizon for developers to come up with apps that change how consumers engage with their photos.
The tablet comes with a very attractive 8.4 inch screen. Its 2560×1600 OLED panel display will take you away to another world altogether. The glass of the tablet stretches beautifully from edge to edge and there’s almost no bezel to block the user’s view. The tablet just has a single grip on the left which has two of the tablet’s four camera and speakers.
Consumer using the tablet can change the focus of a photo to different objects or foregrounds in editing. Objects within the photo can also be measured. The Android-based tablet is powered by the Intel Atom Z3500 processor series.
This Dell tablet also has the advantage of being the very first tablet having Intel’s RealSense. Intel for long had been meticulously working towards miniaturizing 3D camera. Through this, Intel wants to turn every laptop into a Kinect. The tablet has the RealSense module not facing to the user, in fact it is positioned next to another rear mounted 8 MP camera which is used by the user to click pictures. The extra cameras on the tablet give the user an understating about how far the objects are in their photos and allow them to make the changes accordingly.
The software can also be used to find out the distance between two points in a photograph, it does so by using three cameras of the tablet. Intel’s CEO jokingly added that from now on there will no longer be any question about how big a fish you caught.
The tablet is called Dell Venue 87840 and has dethroned Xperia Z2 slate for being the thinnest tablet the world has ever witnessed. The tablet is just 6mm thick and its uber cool gunmetal- grey aluminum chassis makes it a deal not to be missed.
The Dell Venue 87840 runs Android 4.4 on a quad core 2.33 GHz Intel Atom Z3580 processor. The tablet has storage of 32 GB and comes with Wi-Fi connectivity. No details were revealed about the tablet’s price and availability.
