Tap the Play Movies& TV icon.  Tap My Library then Settings.  There's a place to set the downloads location.

I haven't figured out how to install games to the SD card, but for movies and TV you can use this workaround.

Good to know that Dell was never really serious about their tablet market.

I wonder why their stock is dumping?

Um... Dell went private... there is no more stock being traded.

Also, to note is that no production Intel device to this date has Lollipop 5.0 yet.  I learned this from the issues that the ConsoleOS (consoleos.com) team is having.  Intel has not released the full development toolkit to build Android Lollipop for Intel supposedly and manufacturers are waiting on this.

I have been given a date for the release of Lollipop revision 5.01 for the Venue 8.  It is now expected to be released on April the 21.  I will continue to post here with any additional news when it becomes available.

Awesome! Longer than I'd like, but it's good to have a solid date. Hopefully it's 5.1 if it's taking that long.

Disappointed that it's not landing in March but still great to have an ETA, thanks Terry! Do you know which version number of Lollipop we'll be receiving? Will it be 5.0, 5.0.1, 5.0.2, or 5.1?

Do you know if the memory leaks from 5.0-5.0.2 were caught and fixed in the Dell build?
