[Update: Maybe It Hasn’t] Dell’s 10-inch Android Tablet Has Been Delayed Until Fall


A while back at the Dell Means Business conference, the hardware computing vendor was supposed to mention their 10-inch Android tablet. Unfortunately they came to town with their Windows offering and didn’t let loose a single peep about any supposed Android rendition. The reason is now known – it’s been delayed until fall.

The news comes to us courtesy of Forbes who has heard as much from a company source. Dell’s 10 inch tablet was supposed to run Android 3.0 Honeycomb when it launched – their current offerings are all still on Android 2.2.

There’s nothing at the source to confirm this, but it may be directly related to Google’s anti-fragmentation initiative where they are requiring partners to agree to new terms before they’re allowed early access to the latest version of Android. Dell could either be waiting for a public release or they may have to make revisions to their hardware to comply. [via Android Central]

[Update]: Looks like this delay is actually for their Windows-based tablet and not the Android version we’ve been hearing about. Carry on.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. And on that day not a single shit was given.

    1. by Fall it will be outdated and over priced.

      1. Just like the Streak before it. Dell has lost touch. They can’t compete with the pace of the market. Take Dell the dinosaur out back and put it out of its misery before it becomes a Gateway.

        1. I see what you did

  2. It better have Tegra 3 if it’s going to launch then, or sell for $350 otherwise. Their Windows 7 tablet has also been delayed to fall, even though it was supposed to arrive in June. Dell doesn’t seem very good at this mobile game.
