Computer maker giant Dell may launch numerous variations of Android tablet PC, which includes the three-inch, four-inch, and 10-inch devices, according to Dell’s Greater China President Amit Midha who was interviewed by the Wall Street Journal.
Dell CEO and founder Michael Dell announced a 7-inch follow up to the 5-inch tablet last week at the Oracle Open World conference in San Francisco, but Midha told the WSJ that the 7-inch tablet will be release in the next few weeks, and the range of new products is scheduled to ship sometime during the next six to twelve months.
The 7-inch Dell Streak tablet will supposedly run Android 2.1 (“Eclair”) and use Nvidia’s Tegra 2 T20 processor. The tablet will also come with a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, 4 GB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, and more.
Midha stated that the company will stick to Google Android OS but at the same time the company w2ill also sell Windows Phone 7-based devices. But there’s a huge possibility that Dell will launch a new Chrome OS-based device.
The news comes right after the launch by the Canadian rival, Research In Motion, of the Playbook which is designed for the corporate market but built using the new BlackBerry OS, the QNX core technology.
