Dell 10-inch Windows 7 tablet to be releasedComputing giant Dell to boost tablet range in 2011
09 February 2011
Dell has announced plans to add a 10-inch, Windows 7 tablet PC to its tablet range that already includes the smaller Dell Streak.
The new 10-inch Dell tablet, aimed primarily at business users, was announced at an event in the US yesterday, where Dell also unveiled a new range of laptops and desktops.
Details on the Dell Windows 7 tablet were in short supply, and no working prototype was demoed. It has, however, been reported that it will run on an Intel processor, and given the operating system, it will presumably support all MS Office software.

Dell's 10-inch tablet competitors
Dell's only pure tablet offering to date has been the Dell Streak, which comes in 5-inch and 7-inch versions. With its new 10-inch tablet, Dell's throwing its hat into the ring against stiff competition from the likes of Apple's iPad.
And with rumours around a forthcoming iPad 2 launch coming thick and fast, the 10-inch tablet market is only going to get more competitive - which is hopefully good news for prospective tablet owners wanting choice and affordability.
