Dell Venue 8 Pro Unboxing and Photo Gallery

I ordered the Dell Venue Pro on October 18th which I assume was the first day to order the device from Dell and was delighted to see the estimated ship date to be October 30th.  I got an email on the 28th saying the device was still in production and to expect arrival on November 8th.  I got another email on the 29th saying it has shipped and to expect it on the 31st.  As I write this, the device is on a FedEx truck somewhere near me.

On the afternoon of the 29th @davydthomas sent me a tweet saying Wal-Mart had the Venue 8 Pro.  I called the nearest store and sure enough they had 3.  I left immediately and picked one up.  I asked about the stylus and case but they didn’t know if they had them or not.  I searched around and didn’t see them.

Here is the unboxing video.  I’ve started it at the 5:30 second mark because there was a lot of talking explaining the story prior to that point.  Rewind if you want to.  I was told that this is the first Unbox video of the Venue 8 Pro so that is a cool first.  I wish I would have known that as I did the unbox Live on YouTube via G+ Hangouts so people could watch live.  I interacted with the chatroom a lot instead of  just doing the unbox.  My apologies if it seems to chatty.

There is more to come so stay tuned. Ask questions in the forums!

    I read in one of the other review that it has a sim card slot – does it come standard in all models? and if it does, then will it allow us to use any provider's data plan? because that will be really cool!
