Roadmap shows details for Dell Latitude ST, Streak Pro, and Latitude XT-3

If the latest documents are to be believed, Dell has some big plans in store for their tablet front. According to a roadmap screenshot acquired by AndroidCentral, the company plans on launching two tablets and a convertible notebook later on this year.

Getting things rolling is the much rumored Dell Windows 7 tablet. According to the picture, the Windows tablet will be known as the Dell Latitude ST and will feature a 10” screen with a lovely resolution of 1366x768 pixels. Otherwise, it looks like the tablet will be running a 1.5 GHz version of Intel’s new Oak Trail CPU along with 2GB of RAM and up to a 128GB SSD. The specs don’t end there as the Latitude ST will also feature front and rear facing cameras, pen support and around 8 hours of battery life.

Next in line on the screenshot is another 10” tablet that will be running Android Honeycomb this time around. The Dell Streak Pro looks like it’ll be Dell’s next entry to their Streak line and will be running an NVIDIA Tegra T25 processor. Unfortunately, the only other info available seems to be the fact that it’ll be a “data-only” tablet that will also come with a pair of microphones for video chatting.

Finally, the last device outlined by the Dell roadmap is the Latitude XT-3 notebook/tablet that should also features pen support. The notebook looks like it’ll be outfitted with Core i3/i5/i7 processor options along with 4 GB of RAM, an encrypted HDD and a fingerprint reader. No word on the resolution of the 13” screen seems to be available.

According to the screenshot the Streak Pro should find its way to stores sometime this June and the Latitude XT-3 should follow it up in July. On the other hand, the Latitude ST looks like it’ll be trailing the pair with an October 2011 release date.
