The company is aiming to give a tough competition to the likes of Google and Samsung who are currently doing good in India in the affordable tablet segment. The Dell Venue 7 Tablet is also an affordable device and would cost you Rs 10,999/-
The Dell Venue 7 Tablet is a 7 inch device with a HD display. It is powered up by 1.6 Ghz Intel Atom dual core processor. This processor is coupled with 2 GB of RAM.

Coming to the camera, the Dell Venue 7 Tablet has a 3 MP rear camera and a front facing VGA camera. At 9.5 mm, the tablet is really thin and operates upon Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean Operating System. Dell has also provided a built in PocketCloud application which give access to all your content stored on a Dell device(PC or Tablet). It basically works like Google Drive, Skydrive, Box and Dropbox.
The Dell Venue 7 Tablet would collide head on with the Google Nexus 7 2012 tablet which is now available in the market at a super cheap price of Rs 10,000/- It is has been built by Asus and sports a 7 inch display. 1 GB of RAM and a super fast quad core processor power up this device.

It stands at 4325 mAh.
The Nexus 7 tablet has already proved its mettle in the market and is still doing good despite the fact that it is now one and a half year old. The Dell Venue 7 packs in nice features and a realistic price. It would be interesting to see whether the name which Dell has earned in the PC market works for it in the tablet market as well.
