Dell is updating its Venue 8 Pro line of Windows tablets with a new model that means business.
The new Dell Venue 8 Pro 5000 Series tablet features a sturdy MIL-STD tested case, support for a Wacom digital pen, and optional 4G LTE and NFC. It also has a USB Type-C port which will let you connect a desktop docking station (due out in 2016).
Dell says the new Venue 8 Pro 5000 Series tablet will be available in North America soon for $299 and up.
The tablet will be available with either a 1280 x 800 pixel or a 1920 x 1200 pixel touchscreen display. Both models support 802.11ac WiFi, Windows 10 software, and feature Intel Atom processors.
Dell isn’t saying exactly which Atom processor powers the tablet, but if the leak we saw earlier this month is correct, the tablet will likely have an Intel Atom x5-8500 Cherry Trail processor.
Dell’s been offering Venue 8 Pro tablets since 2013, but earlier models featured Intel Atom Bay Trail processors, 802.11n WiFi, and lacked the USB C connectors found on the new models.
