Android-powered Dell Mini 5 Tablet Release Date Confirmed Dell Mini 5 Tablet Availability "in a Couple of Months"
iPad or ASUS and their plans to build one, the folks from Dell are the
latest to join the bandwagon? An Android-powered Snapdragon slate that
saw daylight during CES 2009, the
new Mini 5 tablet has been confirmed and showed off today by the
company's CEO, Michael Dell, who was attending the World Economic Forum
in Davos, Switzerland.
For those who don't know it, the Dell Mini 5 tablet is going to pack a
5-inch touchscreen dispaly, is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor,
along with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G connectivity. The slate boasts a 5
megapixel camera and runs Android 1.6 (although we're hoping for Android
2.1 by the time it launches).
Speaking of launch, although last month we heard from the company's
employees that the Dell Mini 5 is just a concept, today Michael Dell
slipped the fact that the tablet is going to be in stores in a couple
of months .
As cool as that may sound, there Mini 5 has a big drawback — the
$1.1k rumored price tag (before carrier subsidy).
