Next up is Dell's 8-inch Venue Bay Trail tablet. We don't have any specs other than screen size, but that makes two Bay Trail design wins announced at IDF. The only disappointing part thus far is both of the announcements came from traditional PC OEMs...

    yes, because nexus 7 can run x86 programs.

    "much more useful."
    Like running the latest fart apps and imaginary word processors.

    May I simply state, "Baa haa haa haaa"
    Far more useful? What planet do you come from?

    Earth, Dreaming about running x86 Apps on a 8inch tablet is silly.

    Android/IOS are much more capable in that form factor

    Why? 8" is fine. It needs a clamshell-style detachable keyboard now, so you can put it in your coat pocket or bag and have a 100% functional x86 windows computer anywhere.

    I can't keep buying every single device on the market. I want one phone (5"), one tablet (8"), and one laptop (14.1").

    7" can be fit inside a jacket pocket, 8", not so much.

    I've never been using Microsoft Windows and suddenly thought, "Damn, this thing would be a lot more useful if it ran Android apps!"

    But I always think the reverse: "Damn, if only my useless Android device could run Windows apps!"

    Android does very little. And it doesn't even do it great - it's just good. Microsoft really could take over, they just need to stop dicking around.

    Android does a lot, I have challenged myself to program a game just using a tab AIDE/PhotoShop Touch are my weapons of choice and it going along well with the help of LibGDX.

    Dell is not that efficient in making Tablets, Samsung and Apple has wide range of products compared to Dell.
