Dell Venue 10 and Venue 10 Pro tablets debut with Android, Windows 8.1
Dell officially unveiled two new tablets aiming to boost students' productivity, introducing the Venue 10 and Venue 10 Pro slates.
The new Dell Venue 10 runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and is one of the first tablets to receive certification with Google Play for Education. The Dell Venue 10 Pro, meanwhile, runs Microsoft's Windows 8.1. Both tablets support optional docks, as well as a stylus. Moreover, NFC is also on board to allow teachers and students to easily transfer documents and files simply by holding the devices together.
"The classroom is changing quickly, and innovative technology is a major way for students to enjoy a collaborative educational experience," Sam Burd, vice president and general manager of Dell Personal Computing Product Group, touted in a press release. "Education devices need to be really robust to make it through a school district's life cycle. They also need to be powerful and flexible enough to suit individual learning needs, and make collaborating within the classroom simple. Our latest education solutions give students, teachers and IT managers the tools they need to provide an engaging learning experience."
"Dell continues its commitment to teaching and learning, and is really focused on providing complete end-to-end solutions and services that help districts deploy reliable IT infrastructures that support the unique learning needs of their students," said Jon Phillips, managing director of worldwide education strategy, Dell. "This new portfolio ensures that technology remains an enabler of student potential."
The press release doesn't really offer many hardware details, but it does note that both the Dell Venue 10 and Venue 10 Pro feature 10.1-inch HD or full HD displays and enable users to choose from five different working positions when attaching the optional dock.
"The five positions make the most of different learning environments and include: clamshell for test scenarios and to use as a laptop, tent and stand positions to promote collaboration and sharing, and slate configuration for keyboard storage while in tablet mode. An optional active stylus also provides the pen and paper 'inking' experience on a tablet," Dell further explains.
When it comes to pricing and availability, the Dell Venue 10 Pro will go on sale on March 3, priced at $329.99 for the tablet itself or $379.99 with the optional keyboard included. Dell has yet to offer more specific details regarding the Android-powered Venue 10 tablet, noting only that it will launch this spring.
