For my Dell Venue 8 Pro
on November 13, 2013
After researching for wireless keyboard/cases for my tablet, I couldn't find one that had good reviews AND was the appropriate size. So I took a gamble with this product and I'm glad I did.
This case is capable of holding tablets between 7"-8" yet the Dell Venue 8 Pro is 8.5" Most cases carry tablets between 7"-8" and 9"-10" so this a big problem.
HOWEVER, this DOES fit my Dell tablet but it's a VERY TIGHT fit. This doesn't damage the tablet or interfere with the functions other than the Windows 8 button on the side that you'll rarely use. This case fits perfectly with my tablet that perfectly aligns with edges of the case (meaning it doesn't stick out) since the case itself is 9".
I love the bluetooth keyboard because it's so much easier to use over the touch screen keyboard. Although, typing does takes some time getting used to because of the small keys. Another thing is that it doesn't have a place to store your stylus BUT there is space between the keyboard and the tablet that you can fit a stylus there and don't have to worry about it falling out when the case is closed. I can fit my Dell active stylus there which is a little bigger than a pen and it has plenty of room.
After playing with it, I soon discovered (or didn't read the details) that the keyboard is detachable from the case! That blew my mind! It's held by magnets which snaps correctly into place.
Overview, this case works well the tablet and charges pretty fast. The typing shifts your normal typing position over to the right a bit making you turn the keyboard in an angle in order to type. Other than that, this is a great case!
Remember, the Dell Venue 8 Pro is 8.5 inches, so this version case (7in-8in) CAN hold this tablet but you have to stretch the elastic corners to the max. I was worried that I would break the elastic but there's enough leeway to stretch it so that it can hold the Dell tablet in a snug fit. The case closes with ease with the stylus and keyboard making this purchase an excellent choice. BEFORE I was about to buy this, I was looking at the bigger version of this case (9"-10"). I took a gamble and assumed that the bigger version wouldn't hold my tablet properly since it is capable of holding an ipad. Therefore this case (7"-8") should be more a choice.
And I was right. This case fits perfectly.
Just note that you will stretch the elastic to hold the tablet. Don't be afraid to do so, this won't damage your tablet and it hasn't left any marks ever since I've been using this. It will cover the Dell Windows button (which you won't use because it was oddly placed to begin with) and it won't press down on the button either. You can still press the button but usually you will forget that there's even a button there. Please face the buttons OUTWARD when placing this tablet in. Meaning the buttons like the volume and power button should be facing out and not near the keyboard. Note: I do have a screen protector.
