Dell discontinuing Venue line of Android tablets, ceases software updates

dell-venue-8-7000-featured

Dell isn’t a name you hear often when it comes to Android devices, but the company has built quite a few devices over the years. The Venue line of tablets has always been interesting but unsuccessful, so it’s no surprise that Dell announced it is discontinuing its line of Android tablets.

The company’s move to discontinue its current Android tablets also means that software support is ending. Devices will no longer be getting any updates, though thankfully warranty and service will still apply.

The company will now be focusing on 2-in-1 Windows devices, which have become popular lately. The tablet market, on the other hand, has declined with the influx of budget tablets flooding the market. RIP Dell Android devices, we never loved you, but we’ll miss you.
