The Dell Mini 5 is generating a lot of buzz as an iPad alternative. It’s smaller, lighter, runs Google Android, and will function as both a phone as well as a 3G and WiFi internet tablet. But it looks like the Mini 5 may not be the only internet tablet Dell is working on. Dell’s tablet manager Neeraj Choubey tells CNN that the company will “have a family of tablets.”
In other words, the Dell Mini 5 is just the first product from the tablet division. But eventually we could see related products with larger (or smaller) displays.
There’s no word on how much the Mini 5 or other Dell tablets will cost yet, but Choubey says the goal is to keep the prices “competitive.” I can only imagine that means competitive with Apple’s upcoming iPad, which will range from $499 for a WiFi-only tablet to $830 for a model with additional storage and a3G modem.
