@Gollapinni Karthik Sharma • 29 Oct, 2014 My thumbs up for the Nexus 9. Not even comparable to it. That seems more promising than the Dell 7 and 8.

What do you think @Ankita Katdare ?
@Ankita Katdare • 29 Oct, 2014 I think I might've to disagree. If you compare the specs for Dell Venue 8 and Nexus 9, you will find that they are almost the same. However, Nexus 9 is priced a lot higher than Venue 8.

Plus for Venue 8 7000 -
1. Higher screen resolution (1600 x 2560 pixels, 359 ppi)
2. Quad Core processor
3. Better front facing camera.

It all comes down to which brand you trust and would rather opt.
@Gollapinni Karthik Sharma • 30 Oct, 2014 Yeah I agree with you but even though its dual core it is 64 bit. And the battery is more compared to Dell.
Although it lacks storage expansion.
