Dell discontinues Venue Android tablet line-up, says no to OS upgrades as well


Dell has revealed that it’s discontinuing its Android-powered Venue tablet line-up. “The slate tablet market is over-saturated and is experiencing declining demand from consumers, so we’ve decided to discontinue the Android-based Venue tablet line,” the computer tech company said.

Not only this, Dell will also not be offering any more OS upgrades to the already-sold Venue tablet units, although the company says it will continue supporting currently active warranty and service contracts until they expire.

Given the fact that many other Android-powered devices were discontinued by Dell sometime ago, the end of Venue line means that the company has stopped selling Android devices completely.

The company is now focusing on Windows-powered 2-in-1 devices. “We are seeing 2-in-1s rising in popularity since they provide a more optimal blend of PC capabilities with tablet mobility. This is especially true in the commercial space,” Dell said.
