Dell to release tablet with 10-inch screen next year
Dell is developing a tablet with a 10-inch screen that will be released next year as it tries to expand its presence in the handheld market, the company said Thursday.
"You'll see for sure a 10-inch [tablet] from us next year," said Steve Felice, president of the Global Consumer, Small and Medium Business division, in an interview that also included Ed Boyd, who is vice president of the Experience Design Group at Dell.
Dell has already released the Streak, which has a 5-inch screen and smartphone features to make calls. The positive response to Streak, which Dell describes as a tablet, has led the company to pour more resources into developing tablets and smartphones.
Dell in the past has also talked about a tablet with a 7-inch screen, and "it's possible" that device will be released in the future, Felice said. Dell is testing a number of tablets to see which size and weight ratios resonate with users.
"You're going to see a pretty fast development cycle from Dell and you'll see more products next year," Felice said.
