Dell has refreshed one of its popular Windows tablets to stuff more processing power in it and upgrade the software. The company on Monday announced the launch of its latest Dell Venue 8 Pro 5000 tablet, the Dell Venue 8 Pro 5855. The improvements compared to the old Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet include a full-HD display, cellular connectivity support, and Windows 10 operating system out-of-the-box.
