Dell: Four Tablets Ranging from 3- to 10-inches Coming in the Next Year

CEO Michael Dell recently flashed a 7-inch tablet device last week at the Oracle Corp. Conference, and today another Dell higher-up stated that the teased device will be ready to ship in just a few weeks. Amit Midha, Dell’s Greater China President, also revealed that Dell will release a new lineup of products in the next year, including other tablets that are 10, 4, and 3-inches in size.

Could these products be similar to the 5-inch Dell Streak the company currently bills as a slate computer with Android OS 1.6? No official word, but Midha did confirm with the Wall Street Journal that the 7-inch device will run an Android OS.

Midha also mentioned that some of the devices will be available with a Microsoft operating system, which could point to the eye-catching Dell Inspiron Duo 10-inch tablet the company displayed at another tech conference a few weeks ago, or could reference a different device altogether.

The Inspiron Duo  features a rotating touchscreen display that swivels up and down to reveal a notebook keyboard, mousepad, and palm rest, and it packs a dual-core Intel CPU. The lineup of new hardware Midha discusses could be of a similar vein to the Dell Streak smart phone released earlier this summer though.

As to which family will call these upcoming devices cousin, no one knows for sure, but if  product images leaked back in April are any hint, it looks like Meet the Streaks.
