Well I might’ve missed the Sao Joao at Goa, but I did manage to have a good time with friends, and also found time to put the new tablet I got, to task. 5 days of sun, rain, alcohol, technology and fun
This Goa trip was a good break after a tedious 6 months of non stop work. Good break to get some fresh beach in my face. This time around, had a Dell Venue 8 tagging along, thanks to a Dell Blogger Project I’m a part of.
Must say, I’m pretty impressed with the device. Never used a tablet before, so all views are from a newcomer’s perspective.
Battery backup was impressive. Watched 3 episodes of Sherlock back to back on the bus, and batter was still above 60%. That’s 4.5 hours of video playback! Sound quality on the earphones was pretty decent. The glossy screen, while does attract a lot of fingerprints, works pretty well in the sun. Much better than my friends iPad.
Will be writing more about the device in the upcoming weeks. My initial thoughts on it are that it’s totally worth it at 19K for the 32gb Dell Venue 8. Need to push it to its limits to see its full potential.
