Video Daily: The new Dell Inspiron Duo Tablet/Netbook hybrid Dell has announced the upcoming availability of the Inspiron Duo tablet/netbook hybrid today, as well as pricing for the device.
The device will be available during the first week of December, and the base model will sell for $549.

Dell's unique hybrid has a 10.1-inch multi-touch display.

The device runs on a dual-core Intel Atom N550 processor, has 2GB of RAM, a Broadcom Crystal HD accelerator, 250GB of storage, and Windows 7 Home Premium as the operating system.

When flipped into a tablet, the 1366x768-resolution display uses Dell's Duo Stage UI layer, which is much more touch-friendly than standard Windows 7.

A few of the installed apps are Dell's MusicStage, VideoStage, PhotoStage, and BookStage.

I saw this earlier this morning and I think this is pretty cool.

Neat idea for a new convertible design...too bad it is on such a POS laptop.

Would have been more impressive if the tablet actually snapped out like the one from Lenovo.

Lenovo IdeaPad, S10-T3 - Already done.

Flip method is interesting but I think ultimately lame.

I think that is Apple's corporate creed.
