Dell CEO Michael Dell said At Oracle Openworld in San Francisco that the company is planning to launch its second Android-based tablet pc to compete against the king of tablet PC, the Apple’s tablet PC. Matthew Parretta, a Dell spokesman, said that the tablet is just a prototype.
The Texas-based computer maker did not mention any technical specification or release dates.
The only information that was unveiled on the new Android-based device was that it should sport a 7-inch (17.8-centimeter) touchscreen, which would make it comparable with the recently launched Samsung Galaxy Tab. But experts already speculated that the new device is quite similar to the five-inch Dell Streak, others believe it may be the recently leaked Looking Glass.
Dell has already released a mobile Internet device called the Streak, which has a 5-inch screen and voice features. The device runs on the Android OS.
Earlier this year, Dell has already released a mobile internet device called the “Streak” tablet with a five-inch (12.5-centimeter) screen and a camera. The devices connect to the Internet through Wi-Fi or 3G cellular networks, and it runs on the Google’s Android OS.
