ICYMI: World’s Thinnest Tablet Revealed by Michael Dell at IDF


In case you missed it earlier this week, Apple wasn’t the only company showing off new products.

“While you weren’t looking, Dell announced a crazy futuristic tablet,” said Gizmodo

Dell CEO Michael Dell took the stage with Intel CEO Brian Krzanich during the opening keynote of the Intel Developer Forum (IDF)

Dell CEO Michael Dell took the stage with Intel CEO Brian Krzanich during the opening keynote of the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) to preview the upcoming Dell Venue 8 7000 Series, a tablet co-developed with Intel and featuring an impressive series of “firsts.”

IDF is a launch pad for innovation, sparking inspiration in developers, makers and creators alike, and treating attendees to first looks of the latest groundbreaking advancements in the tech world.

This year was no exception with Michael’s reveal. The Venue 8 7000 Series will be the world’s thinnest tablet, will feature the world’s best tablet display available (8.4” OLED display – 2560×1600) and will be the world’s first tablet with an Intel RealSense Snapshot Depth Camera.

The Intel RealSense Snapshot pushes the capabilities of digital photography to a whole new dimension. The camera captures a depth map for every picture you take, allowing you to measure objects to scale like furniture or room dimensions with a simple photo in the Dell Gallery. You can use this function to map out the floor plan for your new apartment, purchase furniture for a renovated living room, or commemorate your highest ascent at the local rock climbing gym. There are a number of artistic benefits as well. People will have much more power and flexibility with editing photos by applying 3D filters, such as changing the brightness only on a foreground object or background object.

Neil Hand on stage at Intel Developer Forum IDF 2014Also at IDF, I participated in the Mobility Mega Session, calling on developers to create apps for the RealSense camera.

These new apps and platforms will galvanize consumers and creative professionals alike to bring new depth to their dream projects, and potentially change the landscape of art, design and business.

I also revealed that in addition to the Venue 8 7000 Series Michael had shown on the main stage, we’ll be releasing a 10-inch version – the Venue 10 7000 Series early in the New Year.

As Pund-IT recently said of our new commercial client announcements, we are focused “on solving the common, real-world problems [our] customers face day in and day out,” so these tablets aren’t designed to be worn on your wrist; but, at a razor thin 6mm they will offer truly functional portability.

Because this was a bit of a "sneak peek" at IDF, further details such as full specifications, pricing, availability date and country availability are still to come. What we do know is that they will be here in time for holiday in the United States and select countries around the world. And, we'll share more as soon as further details are released. ~LPT
