Dell brandished an 8-inch tablet running Windows 8.1 at Intel's annual developer conference on Wednesday.
The Venue branded tablet -- a resurrection of a brand name used for its defunct smartphone line -- will pack a Bay Trail quad-core processor, an IPS display (1,280x800), and Windows 8.1, a Dell spokeswoman told CNET.
It will also come with stylus and keyboard options.
More details will be announced on October 2 in New York.
Tablets with screen sizes of 8 inches may be the sweet spot for the first crop of Windows 8.1 tablets with Intel's Z3000 series of Atom chips, aka Bay Trail.
Last week, Toshiba announced an 8-inch Encore tablet that also runs Windows 8.1 on top of a Z3000 series processor.
And expect similar announcements from the likes of Asus, Acer, and Lenovo.
