Dell Venue 8 - Intel Atom Z2580 Dual Core 2GB RAM 16GB Flash 8.0" Tablet Android 4.2, Black Color (Ven8-1999BLK)
  • Intel Atom Z2580 (2.00Ghz, Dual Core)
  • 2GB RAM, 16GB Flash
  • 8" IPS HD Multi-touch Capacitive Display (WXGA 1280x800)
  • Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean)
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g/n + BT 4.0 + GPS

Pros:

+ A "larger" screen (i.e., not the normal 7-inch); it's funny how a 1/7 increase gives such a larger viewing area.

+ Higher resolultion; after all, the only reason anyone every bought a tablet was for the screen, and this is fairly high-resolution.

+ Unblemished Android; Dell hasn't given this version any bloatware or new GUI elements I can find.

+ Boatloads of RAM; at 2GB, absolutely great for this price-band.

Cons:

- A weak audio-out signal means that you actually get worse audio by using external (battery-powered) speakers than the internal speaker.

- Root is unavailable; that this is an x86 system, and that the legal status of "rooting" tablets is really rather unfriendly at the moment, means that I wouldn't be able to find any convenient root-kits as for (say) a Motorola smartphone. Not that I looked, of course!

- No Flash; being an un-rooted Android device, it doesn't have Adobe Flash-player, which means that things like Amzn. Prm. Inst. Vid. are unavailable to me.

Other Thoughts:

All in all, a thoroughly decent little tablet.

It's consistently been quite "snappy" -- a happy combination of 2GB of RAM and a dual-core x86 processor.

Coupled with Wireless-N Wifi adapter and a nicely-clear display, it makes watching Netflix &c. a breeze.
