Tablet [Q] Updated Venue 7/8 with Intel Merrifield processors

Hi,

I want to buy Dell Venue 8. But I came across that Dell updated Venue 7 and 8 with Intel merrifield processor - Intel Atom Z3460 for Venue 7 and Intel Atom Z3480 for Venue 8.

They announced, these updated units will be available from July 1st but I can not find any of them on internet.

Anyone has any idea where they might be available - preferably in India?
Samsung Galaxy Apollo GT-i5801
CyanogenMod7.2 (Unofficial Port by marcellusbe)

Motorola Moto G 16GB Dual XT1033
Stock 4.4.2

i'm debating on getting one myself. . .
  • the drop-in ram from 2GB to 1GB worries me as my current v7 use more than 512mb just running android 4.4.2 no additional apps started
  • and even though it's a Baytrail based SOC Intel doesn't seem to be living up to it word on Open Source code for it seems they've only published Atom 3800 sources . . .

maybe i'll wait and see if they release another dev-edition first. . .
Current Devices:
Tablet : Dell Venue 7 3730 Android : KK4.4.2 SW : Venue 7 3730_KK4.4V1.26_140430-NoModem rooted using : myKIT_BATCH for Dell Venue 7 / 8

Phone : Motorola Razr M Android : KK4.4.2 SW : 183.46.10.XT907.Verizon.en.US rooted using : towelroot by geohot

Ya know, it doesn't help things having these tablets named after the phones that were discontinued at the end of 2012. And that the two are not even compatible with each other.

Has anyone picked up one of the "updated" models? I ordered one for my daughter this weekend and noticed (AFTER I ORDERED IT!) that Dell decreased the RAM from 2GB down to 1GB.

I am wondering how this will affect the gaming performance, as she will use it to play things like Minecraft PE with her friends.
