I have owned around a dozen tablets including Android, Apple iPad full and Mini, Kindle Fire, Nexus 7, Samsung Galaxy 2 7" & 10". Needless to say, I am "intrigued" by these devices.
However, I have never seen a tablet that does everything that I wanted in one device before.
This baby will do everything a full size laptop PC will do except HDMI output (Venue 11 Pro will have HDMI out)
Had to disable Dell screen brightness control because screen was too dim....now it's awesome.
The Venue 8 Pro will run and do everything I need for business and entertainment including:
- Micro SD Slot! unlike iPad, Apple, Kindle, Nexus, etc. I believe up to 64GB capacity making tablet 128 GB total!
- Full MS Office for business use plus able to install iCloud control panel! Get all of my iCloud contacts.
- Can hook up USB Mobile Broadband 4G LTE modem using downloadable drivers plus adapter cable
and also can connect to my iPhone hotspot. Going to cancel three iPad broadband accounts saving $1,080/yr.
- Installed iTunes with Music Match....3,600 songs
- My Apple photostream is visible on this tablet after installing iCloud control panel.
- Streams Youtube, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc. with absolutely no stuttering.
- The only negative for me is that 8" tablets are a little harder to view than 10-11"Dell Venue 8 Pro 64 GB Tablet (Windows 8.1)
