Dell reportedly working on 7, 10 inch tablets
It’s no secret that Dell plans to launch a 5 inch tablet powered by Google Android soon. And we’ve even gotten a few hints that Dell would have a whole “family” of tablets in different sizes soon. So it looks like the leaked photos that Engadget received showing 7 and 10 inch Dell tablets today might be the real deal.
If the information is correct, the Dell Streak 5 tablet will be the first to hit the streets, sometime this summer. It will sport a 3G mobile broadband modem built for A&T’s network.
A 7 inch Dell Streak tablet is due out in late 2010, while the 10 inch model should be available in early 2011.
There’s no word on the specs for the new tablets. But the Dell Streak 5 is basically the same 5 inch tablet that’s been making the rounds for the last few months, under the Dell Mini 5 name. It has a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon ARM-based processor and a 4.8 inch, 800 x 480 pixel multitouch display. The pre-release version of the Streak 5 runs Google Android 1.6, but it’s possible that by the time it launches this summer it will be available with a newer version of the operating system.
It’s not clear if the larger tablets will use the same processor or operating system. But they’ll definitely have bigger screens — which hopefully means higher resolution displays as well.
