Dell Venue 8 7000 set to ship in the US end of November

Dell will soon be bringing its most premium and yet, at the same time, oddest Android tablet to the US market just in time for the holidays. While the Dell Venue 8 7000 is already quite impressive from the specs alone, flaunting high-end gear all crammed inside an extremely thin profile, the tablet's real selling point would be its rear cameras.

Samsung Chromebook 2 packs Intel chip for entry-level

Samsung has launched a new version of its Chromebook 2, an 11.6-inch notebook running Google's Chrome OS and powered by an Intel processor rather than one of the South Korean's own Exynos ARM chips. The new notebook will drop at under $250, challenging low-cost Windows laptops in the process, while battery life will be a healthy nine hours according to Samsung's estimates.

Dell’s 6mm thick camera-loaded tablet is IDF’s secret star

Intel’s IDF wasn’t where we expected to find an incredible Android tablet, but Dell quietly knocked it out the park with the Venue 8 7000, a brand new slate using RealSense depth-sensing camera technology. An 8.4-inch alternative to the iPad mini with Retina display and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4, the Dell tablet has a surprise on both sides: a fantastic 2560 x 1600 OLED touchscreen on the front, and a trio of cameras on the back.

Intel MICA smart bracelet eyes-on: Fashion or folly?

Intel MICA smart bracelet eyes-on: Fashion or folly?

Intel promised a wearable which mixed functionality and design in an unusual way, and the MICA bracelet is the result, though the jury is still out whether the premium wristband hits the spot. Announced at IDF 2014 this week, the "My Intelligent Communication Accessory" band has a curved OLED touchscreen on one side and a spattering of semi-precious stones picked by Opening Ceremony on the other.
