Will the atom (bay trail) processor for the Dell Venue 11 Pro likely have substantially more battery life than the higher-end Pentium/Haswell processors?

Also, does the mobility keyboard offer a lot more angle choices compared to the Surface Pro 2's two kickstand positions?
You should check out some hands on videos on Youtube, I've only seen it in one stand position so I'm not sure you can choose different angles. However with the battery keyboard you should be able to since you can flip the screen like you would on a normal laptop.
Oh boy - just got email notification that the CASE for my Dell Venue 8 Pro has been shipped...:rolleyes:
Kind of like that old Flip Wilson routine about living in ancient Rome and inventing the vinyl record - sitting on a street corner saying - "Damn, I wish someone would invent a record player..." :(
Anyone have any recommendations for a BT keyboard with trackpad? I'm thinking of passing on Dell's BT keyboard and going with something like the Logitech K400 for a better typing experience.
I would agree with Dstrauss though. I use a Logitech k810 and a Microsoft wedge mouse with my SP1. The keyboard is excellent. I'd rate it right up there with some of the best full size keyboards.
Amazon.com: ASUS Keyboard Touchpad and Cover for VivoTab Smart ME400 Series: Computers & Accessories. At least it will give a better typing experience on the DV8 than a size-matched keyboard.
I just noticed the VP8 on the Dell Small Business Website. it appears to have the WAN connectivity options but only goes up to 32GB of storage. When I called the Dell reps to see what the difference was they said nothing, I asked them to verify my order and they said that all models come with the 4G cards...? I also asked about the microSD option saying that it also shows SDHC and SDXC up to 128GB. microSD tops out at 64GB. The rep told me that the tablet takes both microSD and regular SD cards...? That would be great if it does being that SD cards are available up to 256GB now. I just gotta wait and see at this point, so much conflicted information from Dell it's getting frustrating.

I was looking at pics the other day and I thought the SD slot cover looked a little big just for microSD. That and I think it's just labeled SD. Fingers crossed!
