Dell is reportedly prepping the next iterations of its last-year’s Venue 7 & 8 Android tablets, namely Venue 7 2014 edition (T01C) and Venue 8 FHD 2014 (T02D) based on Intel Atom chip with the new Merrifield platform. Both of these tablets showed up earlier last month at Computex 2014, but for some unspecified reason, didn’t get released in Europe on the expected July 1 launch date. This time, however, they have officially got certified by FCC and are tipped for release in the US very soon.
