Dell Venue 8 Pro: Hands on video

Launched at IDF 2013 and first revealed in Europe at IFA in the same year, the Venue 8 Pro is Dell's latest attempt to crack the highly competitive small form factor tablet market.

After taking the product for a spin, we can safely say that the £250 Windows 8 device represents good value for money and is one of the few legitimate Nexus 7 rivals around.

The Venue 8 Pro features a solid array of specs, headlined by an Intel Atom chipset clocked at 1.8GHz and complemented by 2GB of RAM. The display is another strong point, with the Dell slate sporting a 1,200 x 800 pixel screen - not mind-boggling on paper, but nice and bright in the flesh.

Elsewhere, there's a 5-megapixel rear camera and the Venue 8 Pro also comes bundled with Office Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013, adding to the overall value proposition.

All in the all, the Venue 8 Pro is a nice tablet that is especially appealing to professionals because of its stylus support.
