The devices were originally announced by Dell at CES 2015 this year. While the Dell Venue 8 is the slimmest tablet in the market right now, at only 6mm, the XPS 13 sports a near bezel-less display, fitting a 13 inch laptop into an 11 inch body. The XPS 13 has been considered by many to be the true Windows powered Macbook Air competitor that had otherwise been missing the market till now.
Furthermore, the Dell XPS 15, which also sports the InfinityEdge, bezel-less display, is scheduled to launch in India later sometime. The device was announced at Computex 2015 this year and the company confirmed that the XPS 15 will be coming to India later.
