Mechruler, 19 Jul 2014Does it have OTG supportYes OTG support is there.
gopal, 30 Jul 2014How to Sim or how to connect with the dongleThere is no dongle support built in. I have heard there are some dongles with built in drivers for android but I've never seen one. You can purchase stand alone wifi access point with its own battery that connects to the cell network and then you connect the tablet to it over wifi. Virgin mobile has one, straight talk has one, t-mobile used to have one, and there are probably others. I like virgin's version because you can buy one day a week two weeks whatever you need instead of having to pay for a whole month that you may not need. You can get the virgin mobile access points used on ebay under fifty or a brand new one is like 75 bucks when they put it on special. That works fine.
Tapas, 01 Aug 2014No sim slot, touch screen hangs frequently, I have never had a problem with the touch screen hanging on the android version but I have heard of the problem on the pro windows model..a driver issue of some kind. If your tablet is hanging a lot then maybe try warranty service with dell before your warranty runs out.
I've had my venue 8 android for quite awhile, love it. Dell has upgraded us to the latest android for free (4.3)and it automatically checks for updates. I was disappointed that the cellular capability never materialized (as with many of their products unfortunately). This is speedy with the 2 gig ram and 2 gig cpu. It is small, light and has never given me a single issue other than it doesn't like other adapters besides Dell's own and will complain about substandard power adapter and it can't charge. I love this thing, upgraded from a cheap chinese tablet and this is like night and day. The usb slot is OTG and will support memory sticks either with a cable or one of the newer ones with the micro usb plug on one end. I love the google drive and one drive access and the android chrome supports all the web sites I use including my banking site, which most other browsers do not properly support. I would buy this again. I was able to get one of the newer 64 gig transflash cards working in here but I had to reformat it to fat32 before it would work. Unless the new android update now supports the weird format on those cards you can't format the card in the tablet. I love this and I'd buy it again, I do not wish I'd gotten the pro with the windows version other than a lack of 3g dongle support and I got around that with one of those access point things that links into the cellular network of providers like virgin mobile, straight talk has one too. Of course you can also possibly tether to your android phone wirelessly or over wifi if your provider allows that.

Purchased a 32GB Android.It is very fast and responsive.My complaint is the sound-(single speaker) and volume stinks even with headphones,battery life is disappointing(about 6 to 6 1/2 hours).Would I buy it again?I'd have to so NO.IPad mini will be next.
