My First Impression ~ Dell Venue 8


I was not very fond of the word Tablet. An apple a day keeps the doctors away. This is what I used to rant when I was young. And also I tried hard to stay away from this tablet. But now n then, I do have my stubborn n bitter moments to intake those pills. Okay Enough talking about those white round shaped tablets. It makes me feel sick already.

Few years ago, when my gadget freak cousin visited us and told me that he bought a tablet. I looked at him making a face, ‘C’mon, You don’t even look sick!!’ Hearing that, he laughed and patted on my head. Then he took a silvery pad like thing out of his bag in a dramatic way and boasted, ‘Tatataa....Theee Tabbbelllett....’. At the first sight, I was quite impressed with that dramatic introduction of the gadget and then amused with the way it works. Wow! It was like a computer in our hands. But after awhile, I was shocked when he revealed the cost. I frowned at him for paying such a high price and that too for something which he was not even going to use it often. What’s in need of such an expensive tablet? Just for playing games and surfing the net in a little bigger screen than your phones? It was bit too much, I thought. That’s when I decided I should stay away from that tablet too. Or perhaps you could say in a way I consoled myself, for I am not ready to pay high, I am allergic to anything called ‘Tablet’. And from that day, I was not fond of that Tablet too..!

I am quite happy with my phone and my mini lappy and religiously kept my policy till I got a call 2 weeks back. It was a true surprise package from Dell. I don’t like to get surprises often and that’s because I don't know how to react to it. But when Dell offered me its newly launched Tablet - Dell Venue 8, would I say No?

Now I have got the Tablet too. Yes. Three days ago I received the Dell Venue 8, as a part of Blogger Review Program.

A story on her new Dell..

(Nussy is a nick for my second name :P )

When the courier guy delivered me the package in the evening, I completely forgot the milk boiling in the stove in my excitement of unboxing it. Fine.. Should I have to say that the milk boiled and spilled out a bit and so I got a good 'lecture' from my mom, etc etc.? C’mon, that’s another story. :P


Alright, coming to the point... When I opened its simple and safe package, I found an 8 inch slate, dressed in black. Along with it, came a data cable and the charger pin. And of course its manual inside.


My first look at it - I thought, nice tab! I really enjoyed the feel of its solid matte finish while touching it. It is neither bulky nor light weight. I’d say, it has the right weight to settle in my hands comfortably. Featuring a stunning 8 inch display screen, it is more ideal for the hand to hold. I felt like I can carry it throughout the day.

I, being a klutz, easily slip things from my hands but this Dell Venue 8’s matte finish backside gives a good grip without falling off. And it’s totally comfy to use it, while holding it in a hand or letting it lie on its back rather than giving a stand and play with or especially, to type in it.

After setting up my Venue in less than 5 minutes, I spent a good amount of time with it. I realized it was much friendly to me. That’s cos I simply enjoy the user friendly Android OS just like that in my phone.

For an 8 inch tablet, Dell Venue 8 (32 GB) comes in an affordable price of Rs. 17429/- and I think, it serves good for what we pay. I don’t think we need a high end expensive tablet to play games or surf the net or to read books or watch movies in a mini screen. What do you think?

My first impression with Dell Venue 8 ~ Solid built. Decent design. Gripping body. Friendly OS and Budget friendly. 

You can buy this Tablet online with an easy and secure EMI or COD payment from --> HERE.

They call it is auspicious when the milk boils and overflows. Well, now I am only waiting to see what this black rectangular tablet is going to treat me with... :-)

  12. @ Meera

    Does it use the same disastrous, failure-prone OTG connector as the "Dell" Venue" pro8?
