Android Central has come upon purported specifications and launch details for several upcoming Dell tablets. There are three models in total, and each one offers a different take on the tablet formula.
According to the report, the Streak Pro will be first to arrive when it hits in June. This system is said to sport a 10" display with a 1280x800 display resolution, Tegra 2 hardware, and Android 3.0. Dell will be layering its Stage user interface on top of the Android OS, and there's mention of an "enterprise application stack" in addition to dual microphones and cameras.
In July, the roadmap says we'll be treated to the Latitude XT-3, a 13" convertible tablet with Sandy Bridge inside. The Latitude is pictured with a stylus and promises "active pen support," but there's no word on whether the touchscreen is a purely resistive affair or a dual-mode design with capacitive capabilities. You will get a proper keyboard, though.
Another Latitude is set to arrive in October. This ST model is slated to have a 10" display with a surprisingly dense 1366x768 resolution. An Oak Trail Atom CPU will run the show, and the slide claims battery life of around eight hours. Active pen support makes another appearance here, as does Windows 7. The ST also sports a built-in GPS, accelerometer, and dual cameras,
Prices aren't detailed, but the Streak Pro should compete with the iPad 2 and other Honeycomb-based slates. The Latitude ST looks a little more interesting. With Intel porting Android to x86, I wouldn't be surprised to see the ST arrive sporting Windows alongside a version of Android. Thanks to Engadget for the tip
