Dell Venue 7 (2014): Top 3 Business Features

Dell Venue 7 (2014): Top 3 Business Features

Dell's Venue 7 tablet has been refreshed for 2014 with a faster processor, a sharper display and the same superlight design as its predecessor. The budget-priced 7-inch Android tablet is a follow-up to the original Dell Venue 7, which launched last fall. In addition to updated specs, the slate offers impressive battery life compared to competing 7-inch Android tablets. Check out a full review of the revamped Dell Venue 7 on our sister site Laptop Mag, or read on for three reasons it's good for work.

Better specs

The updated Venue 7 tablet packs faster specs than last year's model, including a reasonably zippy dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage. It's far from the speediest 7-inch Android slate around, but it does offer decent performance for everyday productivity tasks like managing your email inbox and browsing the Web. The slate is an affordable $160 — that puts it in the same price range as the $150 ASUS MeMo Pad 7, which offers slightly faster performance but worse battery life than the Venue 7.

Portability

The Dell Venue 7 is a good pick for business users who want an Android slate that won't weigh them down on business trips or a daily commute. Weighing just 10.2 ounces, the tablet is smaller and lighter than competing 7-inch slates such as the ASUS MeMo Pad 7 and Acer Iconia One 7.

Battery life 

Long battery life is a critical feature for business users who rely on their mobile devices to last through the end of the workday. The Dell Venue 7 delivers with long battery life: about 8 hours and 15 minutes with continuous use. That's about on a par with the Android tablet average and longer than other budget-priced options.
