When it was originally released, the Dell Venue 8 Pro was one of the best Windows 8 tablets available on the market, and even now, it’s not that bad, either. And it seems that it could be getting a nice price cut.

As discovered initially by TabTec.com publication, Amazon.de has recently listed a new version of the Dell Venue 8 Pro that is said to start shipping November 4th at prices starting at 159 Euros. So, if turns out to be true, then the new Dell Venue 8 Pro will be priced at about $159, which is an amazing price, considering that it comes from Dell.

However, it seems that the price cut has been caused by a decrease in specs, as well. The new model is less powerful, sporting just 1GB of RAM instead of 2GB on the old model. The new Venue 8 Pro also ditches the digitizer but this seems to be just about it.

There’s still a quad-core Intel Atom Z3740D processor clocked at up to 1.8GHz per core, an 8-inch display running a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels, a 4830mAh battery, a 5MP primary camera, and a 1.2MP front facing camera with the same design.

The new Dell Venue 8 Pro comes with a one-year subscription to Microsoft Office, while the previous cersion came with the full version of Office Home & Student. So, it will be a real pity if this turns out to be true, but this would justify the much cheaper price.

The current-generation Dell Venue 8 Pro is available at $249 in the US, but comes with 2GB of RAM. If the new one halves that to just 1GB, then it might not run as smoothly as this one.
