Dell To Launch Android Tablet


“Dell is to launch an Android-based tablet device, Pocket-lint has learnt, possibly beating the also rumoured Apple tablet to the market.

The new model, which will go up against the currently available Archos Internet Tablet and recently announced JooJoo (formerly the CrunchPad), will allow users to surf the Web from a handheld device bigger than a touchscreen smartphone, but smaller than a standard netbook.”


“Details so far are thin on the ground, but our multiple “black ops sources” tell us that it will feature a 5-inch screen, run the Android OS and be coming to the UK in the new year, with a more than likely announcement expected at CES 2010 in Las Vegas.

Dell is of course staying quiet on this, but did give us more than the standard no comment when we asked it for more details:

“Dell continually develops and tests new products that extend the mobile experience. We have not made any product announcements and do not comment on speculation, rumour, or unannounced products”.

We will keep you posted.”

  1. Aww no US launch? I wonder if they’ll neuter it without the android market too…

  2. Will it also be a phone? I just want someone to make one of these tablets and have it also be a phone. They do that and its as good as bought for me.

  3. I wouldn’t mind a phone sized tabled without the phone, my kids both want a droid phone but don’t need a phone and I don’t need to pay for a phone, I’d get them each a non phone droid if it were inexpensive enough.

  4. I agree with Phil. Especially if they do a built in blue tooth head set like that phone verizon or att (don’t remember which) had a while back. On something that big i would want a storage slot to make sure my bluetooth was always with me.

  5. i think they need to switch to Chrome OS, touch-based tablets are all about the internet and Chrome OS does an excellent job in that part

  6. I just need to be realistic and say that if Apple made a tablet it would beat any other competition to the ground.
