Dell is about to add a new addition to its line of Streak tablets for a fall release.
First mentioned in a briefing back in February, the 10-inch Windows 7 tablet should be appearing sometime this September at the earliest, according to sources from Forbes. The upcoming tablet would be Dell’s first 10-inch tablet, as the company currently only offers 5-inch and 7-inch variants of its Streak tablet.
Judging from the leaked Dell roadmap last month, the 10-inch Windows 7 tablet would be releasing quite closely to the possible Windows 8 tablet that is reportedly scheduled for Q1 2012. But since other companies such as HP and Asus have already released Windows 7 tablets, Dell may be deciding to introduce a Windows 7 tablet of its own as well. Current Streak models ship only with Android OS, so the new 10-inch tablet this fall would be Dell’s first to run Windows.
Forbes was also tipped with another 10-inch tablet coming from Dell for the summer, this time expected to run Android if released. Whether or not the tablet would be part of the Streak lineup is currently unknown, as the source claims the tablet is considered “unbranded” for now.
Further specifications for the tablets are still up in the air, but we expect more information directly from Dell about its potential tablets shortly, especially with summer coming soon.
