Dell to Launch 10 inch Android Tablet in June

As most of you may already know, the launch of the rumored Dell tablet running Windows 7 has been delayed further until Fall 2011. Dell is apparently also working on a Windows 8 tablet to be launched in 2012.

Dell has always been a laggard in both the Android smartphone and tablet space. The Dell Streak can hardly be called a hit and the Dell Streak 7 also hasn’t received many positive reviews.

To counter the launch of new Android tablets by heavyweights like Samsung, Motorola, LG and HTC, Dell is reportedly working on a new Android tablet which could be up for launch as early as June 2011.

Rumors of a 10 inch Dell Android tablet had surfaced up at CES 2011, but we haven’t had much information about it yet. It could very well be called the Dell Streak 10, and will run Android 3.0 Honeycomb with the Dell Stage UI.

It will compete with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Motorola Xoom, which has been seeing decent sales, though nothing compared to the Apple iPad 2, which seems to be selling 50X as fast. It will likely have similar specifications as them. No pricing details have been announced yet, and we also don’t have the exact hardware specs. Stay tuned for more details.
