Dell Venue

OTA brings Dell Venue 7 tablet up to version 4.3

Got a Dell Venue 7 tablet? Start mashing the check update button because there is an OTA ready and waiting to bring the 7-inch Clover Trail tablet up to Android 4.3.

Word is that this update does good things, and the Venue 7 runs it well. We've no official change log as of yet, but runs well is the kind of response everyone like to hear.

Thanks, Paul

I'm interested to see what kind of performance improvement these Intel tablets will have once they get KitKat and ART...

Yeah, it runs great. Not bad for a budget tablet that runs nearly vanilla Android.

That's not bad. I have a tab 2, so I presume I'll be waiting awhile for 4.3

I bought my son's the tab2 I'm pretty sure it won't be updated to 4.3 or 4.4

The processor in the tab 2 should be able to sort 4.3, but I'm sure it's probably not a priority for Samsung right now. They should probably update the firmware on the tab 3 7.0, which is running Android 4.1, yet the other tab 3 models have Android 4.2
The Tab 2 has a Texas Instruments OMAP processor, so it probably isn't getting kitkat.

Why do insist on waiting. Root it and put CM11 (Android 4.4) like I did with mine. No excuses because chances are, the warranty has ended on that older device. So their is zero risk and only benefits. Until you do so, STOP complaining about not having 4.3, 4.4. It's your fault.

Great! I should be receiving my Dell Venue 8 tomorrow, so hopefully it'll get the update as well, unless it's already received it. This is my HP Touchpad replacement.
