Dell is reportedly actively contacting Dell Venue Pro 11 tablet customers for a replacement to fix issues where the device randomly freezes, shuts down, and periodically loses power.
A long thread dating back to December 2013, with over 90 pages of responses, shows that customers have been experiencing the problems since the tablet released. Though, not stated publicly on the Dell web site, many customers are receiving direct phone calls informing them of the willingness to replace the flawed units, and then subsequent emails requesting more information.
The full email:
