Dell close to launching 7-inch tablet Dell Greater China President Amit Midha has said today that the company is launching a 7-inch tablet within weeks and a larger 10-inch device within a year.
The computer giant currently sells the Streak, a 5-inch hybrid phone/tablet that runs Android.

Dell CEO Michael Dell briefly showed off the device at an Oracle conference last month, but gave no timeframe for its release.

"It was showed off at Oracle World by Michael last week and we'll be launching very, very soon—within the next few weeks," says Midha.

Furthermore, Dell will be releasing smaller new products, as well, including a number of smartphones running Windows Phone 7 and Android.

"In fact, very much in the near future we'll be launching the seven-inch tablet as well as the additional three-inch product," says the president.

Dell has said it is still considering whether to create a product that runs Google's upcoming Chrome OS.
