Leading computer vendor Dell has released its first ever 10-inch tablet computer, the Dell Streak 10, with little fanfare in China.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Dell has launched its first 10-inch tablet, to compete with the likes of the iPad and Motorola Xoom, the Dell Streak 10, which is powered by Google’s Android Operating System. The new tablet has initially been introduced in China in an attempt to grab a part of the burgeoning market which has been dominated by Apple ever since the iPad was launched.
“The fact that we’re launching it in China first underscores the importance of China to Dell overall. IDC estimates that more than 900 million people are expected to come online in China alone in the next 10 years,” Michael Tatelman, the Vice President for consumer sales and marketing at Dell stated.
The Dell Streak 10 boasts a 10-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1280×800 pixels. It is based on NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 processor, is powered by Android 3.1 Honeycomb and hosts both a front and rear facing camera of two and five mega pixels respectively.
Dell's Strek 10 is priced at around $465 in China. The company has not mentioned anything about an international launch for its tablet device yet.
