Dell officially announced its plans for both a 10-inch Android and 10-inch Windows tablet today during its Dell Means Business event in San Francisco.
The Windows 7 Business Tablet and the 10-inch Android Tablet, as they have supposedly been named, are two tablets that come as part of the Dell Means Business Product Launch, which features 39 different devices. These new products, all of which were unveiled at Dell’s event, range from laptops and desktops to workstations and even a convertible tablet (the Latitude XT3).
Although the details about the tablets are still light, it was mentioned that the Windows 7 Business Tablet would feature an Intel processor and will be available by the middle of 2011. Also, given the names, it is apparent that neither of the tablets will be considered part of the Streak line of products.
Nothing has been confirmed yet as to what version of Google’s operating system will be on the 10-inch Android Tablet, but speculation has pointed to 2.2 (Froyo) with Dell’s State Overlay UI, which can be found on the Dell Streak and Streak 7. Hopefully, the rumors are wrong and the new tablet from Dell will feature a slightly more up-to-date version of Android, seeing as many of the other high-profile tablets coming out soon will sport the more modern, tablet-specialized Android 3.0, aka Honeycomb.
