Dell has decided to bring back the Venue brand as revealed at the Intel Developers Forum. The Dell Venue Pro 8 specifications have not been revealed in too much of detail but what has been shown makes it clear that it will make life more difficult for the iPad Mini and the latest Nexus 7.

The Venue Pro 8 is an 8 inch tablet making it direct competition for the Apple  iPad Mini2 which is 7.9 inches and the latest Nexus 7 which is 7 inches. The Venue Pro 8 uses Windows 8.1, the iPad Mini uses iOS 6 and the new Nexus 7 uses Android. The Venue Pro 8 1080p screen compares well against the iPad Mini’s 1024p. The new  Google Nexus 7 though has an amazing 1920 by 1200 resolution display.  The Venue Pro has a major advantage in the fact that it supports expandable memory via Micro SD card while the iPad Mini and the Nexus 7 do not.

The Venue Pro 8 lacks LTE and cellular support which is a major shortcoming for any new tablet these days.
