Dell: Dell unveils the Inspiron DUO 10-inch convertible notebook

Dell introduces a 10-inch “tablet-style” computer that brings back the classic convertible design

What’s the image that conjures up in your mind when we say “Tablet Computer”? Well contradictory to what is called a contemporary tablet computer, the ones that were originally designed consisted of a screen foldable over a keyboard. That’s precisely what Dell has decided to bring back to life with the stint at introducing convertible tablets as opposed to the present day slate style touchscreen tablets sans physical keyboards for input that are presently flooding the market.

The 10.1-inch upcoming Dell Inspiron Duo was showcased recently at the Intel Developers Forum at San Francisco. The device runs on the dual core Intel Atom N550 processing system with a user interface powered by Windows 7 Home Premium edition. In an attempt to mend previous flaws in terms of design to ensure ease of user operation of Dell Touchpad’s, this version sees identifiable navigation buttons contradictory to its previous, much criticised designs which made it hard to perform even basic operations.

The netbook which comes with docking stations for speakers and during charging is speculated to be in the above average price band as compared to others in its segment. The Dell Inspiron Duo is slated for release before Christmas this year.
