Dell announced several new tablets today, including two powered by Android. What makes those tablet stand out is that they are the first Android-powered tablets from Dell since the Streak 7. Don’t remember that one, you’re not alone. Following after HP, Dell is aiming at the budget conscious crowd with their new 7 and 8 inch tablets. The 7 inch tablet has an Intel Atom Clover Trail CPU clocked at 2GHz with 2GB of RAM for $149. The 8 inch model isn’t very different rocking the same specs with a price of $189. Both tablets offer 16GB of storage (expandable via microSD) with a 1280×800 IPS display and are available in black or red. The only true differences between the two tablets is the screen size and the cameras. The Venue 7 has a 3MP rear camera and a VGA front camera. The Venue 8 (pictured below) has a 5MP rear camera and a 2MP front camera. The tablets come with Android 4.2.2 and the company claims that they will upgrade the tablets to Android 4.4 as soon as they can.  

Both the Venue 7 and Venue 8 are expected to ship October 18th, sharing the release date with Amazon’s new Kindle Fire lineup
