While all watched the Apple, Dell introduced the most interesting tablet this year





While the whole world was watching the presentation of Apple and the announcement of its two new iPhone 6 as well as hours of Apple Watch, at the ongoing exhibition in 2014 Intel Developers Conference in San Francisco, Michael Dell, head of Dell’s own persona, showed the assembled audience, perhaps the most interesting tablet this year.


The first thing that should be allocated in the new gadget – it is its thickness. The thickness of the aluminum body of the new tablet from Dell is only 6 millimeters, which allows him to take the crown of the thinnest tablet in the world at the “plump” tablet Sony Xperia Z2, whose thickness is 0.4 mm longer.


Secondly, the new Dell’s got without doubt the best screen, which can only be a tablet. Resolution 8.4-inch OLED-display “tablets” is 2560 x 1600 pixels. Manufacturer of this panel is to Samsung. The same beauty can be found in the same brand new and recently released Korean tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab S. Only here the device even thinner. Screen frame on three sides with the device is very small. To a tablet with a screen form can be comfortable to hold, on its left side is a grill, which also hides the dynamics of the device and two of the four chambers of the gadget.

Why tablet four cameras, you ask? The fact that the new tablet Dell is the first tablet device, the technology Intel RealSense. Recently, Intel has very fruitful working on miniaturization of 3D-camera and actually set a goal in the near future to equip almost every laptop system Kinect. In order for a user to control applications on the screen hand gestures.


However, this tablet sensor module RealSense image depth is not aimed at the user. Instead, it is located on the back side next to the 8-megapixel camera. And instead of allowing you to control the device in “Minority Report”, additional camera devices are used to determine the distance to objects that you want to photograph, and the correct focus. For example, clicking on a point on the screen, you can reconfigure the focus (the same function have the same camera Lytro) or to change the aperture. When using three cameras software may even find the distance between two particular points on a future picture.


Journalists portal Gizmodo managed to play with a prototype of the new tablet, and they point out that although the function to select the depth image worked in their hands did not go very smoothly, and the Dell Software when manipulating images behaved not always stable, Dell representatives were able to show examples of what technology really operates. In one such example of a representative of the company transferred the color image to black and white and back starting from the objects in the image, which is closer to the camera and clearly showing how these objects were distant from it. As another example, was shown a picture with snowflakes, sloping down to the bike. In this picture captured the moment when the snowflakes only touched the surface of the bike.


According to journalists Gizmodo, the most interesting tablet this year (according to Gizmodo) is the most common and boring name – Dell Venue 8 7840 (part of a series Venue 8 7000 Series). It is unclear how much will it cost Dell Venue 8 7840, and how many will work on a single charge. However, we know that the device is running an operating system Android 4.4, is powered by Quad-Core Intel Atom Z3580 with a frequency of 2.33 GHz, has the support of Wi-Fi, 32 GB of memory (expandable via memory cards microSD), charged through microUSB and should go on sale in the United States and other countries, the New Year holidays.


It should be noted that the cost of one unit of the image depth RealSense from Intel is about 10-20 dollars. Gizmodo writes that some of the other partners of the company are also planning to integrate it into their devices, one of which will have support for LTE, and the other – to have a big screen and keyboard. Specific details on how it will be for the device, not yet reported.
