Leaked roadmap outs three Dell tablets

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 1280×800 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 1366×768 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

    Hmmmm… No Palm OS tablet devices?

      The 10″ TouchPad in June, the so-far-unnamed 7″ in Sept (but more likely August for back-to-school sales)

      Why would Dell make tablets that run on an OS owned by HP?

    That Latitude XT-3 says it can be ordered with a Core i7 – hmmmmmmmm….. Offer it with a 1920×1080 display (even if its an option) and not only will I order one for myself, I bet I can sell a boatload to customers (especially if its waterproof!!) (OK, inside joke…) (and arguably in poor taste to boot – rubber boots,that is.. Oh, again!)

      I’m going to be honest. I have no idea what you’re talking about.

        I told you, it’s an inside joke, and you’re on the outside, Snooki…

        Oh, all right: our software is used by disaster response coordinators, and the idea of a tablet with a high-resolution screen (for detailed maps overlaid on aerial photos) and serious computing horsepower would make them drool. Which is the nub of the joke: right now, they’re all busy either dealing with, or preparing for, spring floods.

          Don’t start drooling just yet. There’s a 99.99999999% chance that when they say i7, they mean a dual-core with a whopping 1MB more cache than the i3/i5s. Nobody seems to sell a laptop smaller than 14″ with a quad-core i7. Screen size may be a restriction Intel has for quad-cores, and I know some of those restrictions haven’t been loosened much since the first mobile Core 2 Quads.

          However, AMD likely does not give a flying carp on a stick. If Llano quad-cores gain as much ground in laptops as the Phenom II quad-cores did, they ought to be pretty common place. Hopefully that will be enough for Dell and Lenovo to warm up to AMD more and stop shunning them for their fancier models.

            a) I hope you’re wrong
            b) I hope you’re right

            It won’t matter for long. They just pulled a ninja price drop on the i7 quad-cores. They don’t disclose the OEM-only model prices, but they definitely no longer have the minimum set at $400, and I’ve seen a few $700 Sandy Bridge quad-core laptops already. They appear to be shifting quad-cores to the mainstream to keep up with AMD.

            The real problem in the way of what you’re asking for is that they still don’t even have a standard TDP quad-core, whereas AMD had them from low to high right out of the gate.
