Dell plans on releasing a 7-inch tablet PC, powered by Google Android, as a follow-up to the recently released Streak. CEO Michael Dell offered a sneak peek of the new device during a Sept. 22 presentation at Oracle OpenWorld, but remained tight-lipped about specs or a possible release date.
“Michael made the point that devices are changing and evolving rapidly to keep up with the way users want to get their data—anytime, anywhere,” read a Sept. 22 posting on Dell’s corporate blog, Direct2Dell.
Dell’s other tablet PC, the 5-inch Streak, was evidently just the beginning of the company’s push into the burgeoning consumer tablet market: In a Sept. 14 presentation at the Intel Developer Forum, company executive David Zavelson showed off the 10-inch Inspiron Duo, which can be used as either a tablet or a netbook. Dell plans on using a dual-core Atom chip for the device.
