Got the DV8P...going to buy the Lenovo soon for my wife.
Yes, i hear many complaints around that Truecaller still is useless.
haha, i "sadly" paid $299 for the 32gb version a few days after it came out @ Walmart (the only store that had it originally)...........whats funny, is i dont even feel bad about it - this thing is way better than an Ipad mini, and is soooooooooooooooo much cheaper. I cant understand why anyone would want ipad mini with these 8" windows tablets on the market - i guess its because IOS = Idiot Operating System
I've had the Venue 8 Pro 64Gb for almost two weeks now and it's the best. Zippy performance, high quality! So much better than my Dell ST 10" tablet that I've had for 2 years (now retired). 8" is plenty of screen for a tablet and awesome battery life! I was worried about the 1280x800 resolution, but no need to, it's just right for 8".

The dell venue 8 because it's $99 on Monday and my old coworkers at the Microsoft store will save me one.
Price is definitely a deciding factor! :)
Still happy with my RT, altough you do have do accept its limitations. Mate of mine adores his Surface 2. For me, it was not only price but also the form factor and OS. Atom tablets running Win8 with more power and storage existed, but they were comparatively clunky and didn't have the i/o ports. I like that I can't install anything that doesn't come from the Store - because nobody else can either! ^_^. It's an "applicance-like" PC that still lets me get real work done. Practically zero administration effort. Love it.
Just that Windows Defender/Security Essentials is pretty much useless when it comes to Day-0 exploits/attacks.
And that's different from what other thread when its a HTC and someone talks Nokia?
I really wanted to get the Dell V8P, but no LTE. If it had LTE, it would be IMO the best Windows tablet on the street today.
I hate Commerzbank! Switched to my local Volksbank :P they even have an app
Still have my Dell XPS 10 so I really don't need another but that Dell at 99.00 has me thinking to get it on gp
That would be nice. The Samsung ATIV Note, with optional S Pen.
I think that is what they mean.
'Cause when the US government backdoors encryption standards, actively tracks billions of cellphones around the globe, does man in the middle attack with fake certificates, forces Google to hand over your data and what not, that's fine. But the poor Chinese that get your browsing history?
By the way, they can't just look in your encrypted / https traffic even if they send it through their proxies. Sure it's possible if you really want to but I doubt that company has the means to do so.
Yeah, that's the problem.
I mean, I use my Surface almost daily BUT I only use because it has Microsoft Word. To write. I don't see films or play games in it. And I most definitely don't read in them (I am completely against "ebooks").
So I don't see what use could I give to a 20cm tablet.
Balling on a credit card isn't balling.
I for one would love to see MS release Office 365 for Android and Chrome OS, like they have done for iOS. Great place to experiment with what works best in a touch-based Office, before releasing the more refined product for Win8/RT/Phone :P

Problem is the poll wasn't asking about an Android device, he just felt the need to invade our community with his nonsense.
Yeah the fine print says one per customer.
Hmmm...no bashed on u in d comments !! surprising..
Finally you have something sensible to say rather than your clueless predictions and scenarios.
I'll wait for Surface mini. Xbox, Windows Phone, now Surface... I have no desire to buy anything but in-house devices.

I will wait until ces or mwc that i know the tabs will not be generaly available before that date in Belgium.
However when in need to choose right now the dell is the one i would pick.
There's no dark side it's a preference choice. Don't let these fanatics dictate that. I have a nexus 7 also. What I will say though is that I will most likely not be using it as much. Having full web browser again and wireless printing created a recycle bin for my Nexus until its time for Candy Crush. The only time I use it is when I'm in bed as the size factor is more suitable, however if I get this Dell, it may be the last dagger in Android hardware for me.
^^^"A Drowning man will clutch at a Straw" ...so don't even, lol
I'm guessing you have an hour to get one, unless they run out in the first five minutes so get there when they open.
I want the ability to use my tablet like a desktop when "docked" and I want to be productive. for this it NEEDS to have the ability to use with an external display.
so far only one of these tablets do that.
Already a proud owner of a surface pro....best tool at work!
Problem with HDMI is probably because these devices are hard coded for portrait mode and don't work well in clone mode or as described, when in extended mode the tablet locks to portrait mode. However there was a chipset driver update for the Dell which seems to have fixed the issue with mirroring with Miracast so its possible a future update will fix the Toshiba issue.
Its strange that, people are willing to try ios, android, BB without a second thought but mention a Windows tablet and their eyes glaze over and they blindly scream "No way!". As you say, brainwashed.
The T100 looks nice too.
I use my surface for very little nowadays. But it has come in handy on more than a few occasions so its something i like to keep in my bag. Rather expensive considering the use i get out of it but i got it free so who cares.
File a complain with the European Commission. They forced Microsoft to have a browser selection screen when you install a new Windows machine, why should Windows Phone be any different ^^.
"It's Windows 8 every time... unless you need a Mac" XP
Assuming that they were real people, I'm imagining a huge proportion would be invested in the Apple ecosystem and consider that a requirement. Just throwing it out there. But product demonstration is an important part of marketing and if a Chromebook is useless without wifi then ... well it's not useful enough!
Troll, have fun being scroogled.
How many cows can one trade for this
Windows 8 has its own AV built in, based on security essentials. Additional virus scanners are just...redundant.
Already got my 64GB DVP last week. Sweet little device. Sadly paid $280 for it taxes in from the MS Store.. But the 64GB appears to be impossible to find on the street at least where I am so I guess it's worth the cash.. Will be trying to grab another 32GB DVP Monday for a xmas gift though.
Yeah I don't understand this attitude. Windows tablets work fantastic. I think people have just been brainwashed.
I think I rather wait for a 20cm Nokia tablet. If it happens. If it doesn't, meh. I might get a Surface one. Might. I don't see myself actually using it for anything really.
I really don't need a tablet of any kind, but for $99 I may not be able to talk myself out of it.
Think I'll stay over here in the Player's Corner balling out hard with my OG Surface Pro.
4look, you're either crazy or not being serious. Yikes.
Really unsure, i want one of them but they are so similar in specs but different but like the same prices arghhh, ive only seen the encore and the dell one in uk and only see the encore actually advertised, but i do like the whole keyboard u can get with the dell when it comes available but bet that will be expensive
Even Google's advertising based Trojan Ad Horse cannot compete with that.
My Toshiba should be here next week.
Just gone to the dark side and picked up a nexus7
Much as these are wished for devices for some people, they are already released. It's just a matter of whether or not your carrier and country is stocking them, hardly something that would be announced at CES.
Hoping to get my hands on the Dell 8 this Monday.
