    Hey all,
    I have just discovered that Dell UK have silently released the 3G/Mobile Broadband version of the Venue 8 Pro. It is however available on the business section of the Dell website and only available on the tablet with 64GB of storage and there us also a version with Windows 8.1 Pro.

    For those of you waiting for the The Dell Tablet Wireless Keyboard this is also available for 70.38. for some strange reason I was quoted 199 on Dell chat to which the advisor stated she could not comment on the pricing structures!!.

    The website has been updated to show a ship date of 11th March 2014.

    That could be a pretty compelling device! I wonder why 3G and not LTE?

    Not sure a lot of companies over look this, probably to keep costs down.

    Why would I take a step backwards and pay for a 3g option? I guess if you used your tablet for work and travelled a lot and had to have some form of internet access it would work...maybe. Not for me. We have wifi everywhere at my job, I have wifi at home and my cell plan has hot spot.

    Cost should not be a factor, as an option it has no impact on the base price, anybody who needs broadband access would be willing to pay for a 4G option

    It's a not a step backwards as wifi is still available on the device. Having 3G was one of the most requested features but I can't see Dell updating the device again just to include 4G as there would have been no point in releasing the 3G version in the first place

    Well I'm jealous of Dell UK. According to the Dell brochure, when (if) the DV8P gets mobile broadband in the US, it will be LTE.

    Here's the Dell Venue 8 Pro 3G User Manual - US Dell site

    And here's a ScreenCap from page 18 describing the Mobile Broadband Settings

    great news, as a venue pro 8 user I am loving it, 3G will do just fine as no one has released LTE version anyway with 8" screen size...just add a slot for built in pen and this is unbeatable combination
