Dell also introduced a 10” Android slate. I doubt Dell is going to be a contender in smartphones, but its tablets could, e.g., block sales of RIM PlayBooks and HP Palm tablets
The Round Rock, Texas, computer maker introduced a tablet PC with a seven-inch touch screen display that it calls "Streak 7" at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The new Streak tablet follows the release of a model with a five-inch screen that Dell launched last summer.
The newer version will include 4G wireless Internet connectivity from Deutsche Telekom AG's T-Mobile USA unit and carries a dual-core processor by Nvidia Corp. The device, which weighs less than a pound, runs a version of Google Inc.'s Android operating system for mobile devices.
Dell also unveiled a 4.1-inch smartphone that it calls "Venue."
