An Extra Inch
With inexpensive 7-inch Android slates dominating the classroom scene these days, Dell has an 8-inch that could be the best compromise between price and size. At $200 (with 16GB of storage), the Venue 8 has an HD screen and is powered by an Atom Z3480 processor that runs at 2.1GHz and has 1GB of RAM; an extra $35 adds a stylus and case. It uses Android 4.4 software and comes with the latest 802.11ac WiFi radio. It weighs less than 12 ounces.
