Last week, Apple launched its iPad Air 2, claiming that the tablet was the thinnest in the world. However, come November, and this will change after Dell launches its new Venue 8 7000 tablet.

How thin is this new tablet? Only 6mm – a whole 0.1 mm thinner than the iPad Air 2. The difference will be very hard to notice, but numbers are numbers.

While Dell is yet to offer details on the upcoming tablet's pricing, it has given away a host of other details. However, according to PhoneArena, "the tablet will be available starting late November for $499 [£248] (at least in the US). As for specs and other details, it will be running Android KitKat and will sport an 8.4in OLED display with 1600x2560 pixels. The device will be powered by a quad-core Intel Atom Z3500 processor."

As for imaging, users will find not one but three cameras on the tablet. On the rear, there is the primary 8 megapixel camera, which has two secondary cameras next to it. The tablet uses Intel's RealSense 3D technology, which allows users to shoot 3D pictures and video that they can apply interesting effects on. Other features include stereo speakers, 2GB of memory, and 16GB of internal storage.

Given all these new features, specs and dimensions, it appears that the Dell Venue 8 7000 might find numerous takers during this holiday season.
