If there’s one thing that consumer tablets will need it’s branding. Dell, Android and Tegra are three of the best so if the Looking Glass, a 7 inch tablet, doesn’t take off we’ll know the tablet either someone screwed up the marketing or people really can’t be bothered with tablets.
The Looking Glass (Dell Mini 7?) not only has the brands, it has the specifications too. Dual Cortex A9 CPUs (That’s Tegra 2) Android 2.1, Bluetooth 3, HSPA, optional DTV module, all the sensors you need and a 500gm weight. It’s a package that smells of success to us.
This won’t be in the market until very late 2010 (November at the earliest) but it shows how much effort Dell is putting into the smart devices business. Price is unknown of course but as with the Dell 5 Mini 5 (Streak) you can bet that this is targeted at carriers.
The news comes via a huge leak of Dell phone and tablet info through Engadget. Archos will be happy to see that!
We’ll cover the Dell Mini 5 news that leaked in the next post.
