Dell's Mega-Thin Venue 8 Tablet Is Now Available For $399.99 From Best Buy

Dell has been making Android tablets for a while, but none of them have been terribly interesting. The new Venue 8, on the other hand, stands out in a sea of freakishly similar slates. This is the thinnest tablet in the world at only 6mm (a whole one-tenth of a millimeter thinner than the iPad Air 2) and it showcases some neat camera tricks thanks to its Intel hardware. It's been vaporware so far, but now you can get one at Best Buy for $399.99.

Dell Announces Refreshed Venue 7 And Venue 8 Tablets With New Processors, Less RAM, And KitKat

Dell's Android-powered Venue tablets from last year were more than adequate, but failed to make a definitive impression on the crowded Android market despite reasonable specs and low prices. The Texas company is hoping that a quick refresh of the hardware on the 7-inch and 8-inch models will help move a few more units... and hopefully a few lucrative accessories as well. Updated versions of the Venue 7 and Venue 8 will run Android 4.4 out of the box.

Dell Launches Wyse Cloud Connect, The Android-Powered Dongle Formerly Known As Project Ophelia, Priced At $129

Google's Chromecast is cheap and awesome, but it only performs a very specific set of functions, and even venturing out as far as tab casting gives murky results.

It comes with complete access to the Play Store, so you can use it to keep up with episodes of The Daily Show, listen to Lady Gaga, defend towers, or, you know, be productive.

Remember the bug-fix build for the HTC Thunderbolt that we leaked last month? Turns out Verizon decided it was OTA material, because the support docs were just updated with details of this same build (2.11.605.19).

HTC Announces Ice Cream Sandwich Updates For Some North American Phones - Thunderbolt, Rhyme, Droid Incredible 2, And Raider All Make The Cut

Last week, HTC detailed the Android 4.0 update for several handsets, but many U.S. models were noticeable absent form the list. Today, the Taiwanese manufacturer has taken to its Facebook page to highlight some of the North American handsets that will see the update, most of which are on Verizon. It's a shorty, but goodie:

  • Thunderbolt
  • Rhyme
  • Droid Incredible 2
  • Rezound
  • Raider (Rogers and Bell in Canada)

Sadly, HTC left out any timeline details, so we really have no idea of knowing when to expect these update to roll out.
