The Dell Venue 10 7000 is an Android tablet aimed at business customers, similar to the amazingly thin Dell Venue 8 7000 which was launched back in January. In many ways, the new tablet is highly similar to its smaller brother, but there are some notable differences to take into account as well.

For starters, the Dell Venue 10 7000 features a 10.5 inch AMOLED display with a 1600 x 2560 pixel resolution, up to 32GB of internal storage which can be expanded through microSD, an 8MP rear camera, a 2MP front camera, and an Intel Atom Z3580 processor with 2GB of RAM. Dell feels businesses will be able to take advantage of the lager screen real estate.

Other than the size, the larger Venue 10 has a lot in common with its smaller sibling. Even the design is clearly inspired by the Venue 8 7000, even though both tablets aren't exactly identical. The tablet is just 6.2 mm thick, just 0.1 mm thicker than the 8-inch model. Despite the likeness of the two tablets, the new 10.5 inch model comes with a cylindrical bulge that rests at the side of the tablet (in portrait mode). Dell has used the extra space to fit it the larger 7000mAh battery along with a pair of stereo speakers. The cylindrical portion also allows the Dell Venue 10 7000 to be paired with its optional docking station, one that comes with a trackpad and a back-lit keyboard. This optional keyboard dock, paired with the large screen, is an interesting combination that should allow for some easy productivity work.

The new Dell Venue 10 7000 will be priced starting at $499 without the keyboard dock, which costs $130 extra. It remains to be seen if business users are willing to take up an Android tablet as their main productivity machine, but if they do, the Venue 10 7000 seems to be their best choice at the moment. The tablet will reach the US, Canada, and China at some point in May.
