Leaked Info On Dell Tablet: An iPad Killer On The Way?

PCWorld: Leaked Info On Dell Tablet – An iPad Killer On The Way?

Engadget, an online tech zine, claims to have received leaked documents showing marketing collateral for five-inch- and seven-inch-screen tablets from Dell running the Android operating system.

“Forget about boring old next-generation iPhone leaks , more rumors are afoot about Dell’s aggressive moves into the mobile space with its line-up of Android-based tablet computers . Engadget has uncovered what it claims are leaked documents detailing information about the 5-inch multitouch Dell Streak tablet (also known as the Dell Mini 5 ), and Dell’s 7-inch multitouch tablet device, known as the Looking Glass. Engadget’s images of marketing material for the Streak 5 reveal the device may be released this summer or possibly as late as September, while the Looking Glass looks set for a November release. There’s also no word on pricing for either device.

But enough with the preamble, let’s dive right in: Dell Looking Glass – According to Engadget, Dell’s follow up to the Streak (aka Dell Mini 5) will be a 7-inch tablet called the Looking Glass if Engadget’s leaked documents are correct. The new device is said to be running Android 2.1 and will include a 7-inch WVGA screen with 800 x 480 display resolution; 4GB RAM; 3G, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity; 1.3 megapixel camera (no mention of a front-facing camera); and optional TV tuner. The Looking Glass will also have a memory card slot supporting SD, SDHC and MMC formats, but maximum storage will be relatively low at 32GB.”
