If you are in the market for a new Android tablet and have been eyeing the Dell Venue 8 7000 series tablet you are in luck this week. The tablet is on sale for $149 on the Dell website here and also has free shipping.
A few things to know about the tablet before considering, it runs an Intel Atom processor so there are going to be some applications that do not work. Since the majority of android devices run ARM processors most of the native code is written for ARM processors. There is an ARM compatibility that helps the tablet run ARM code but it isn't 100%. The $149 is for the 16GB or storage, this may or may not be enough although it does have a microsd slot for expansion. As of this writing 82% of the devices have been claimed.
