Michael Dell, chief executive officer of Dell, demonstrated a tablet running Google Android operating system at an event organized by Oracle. This device will be Dell's second product featuring the operating system developed under the lead of Google after Dell Streak launched earlier in 2010.

At present the only thing is known about Dell's tablet is that it is based on Android and that it features 7" touch-screen display. The company's chief exec did not reveal technical specifications, price and even name of the product. Moreover, according to media reports, Dell even is not disclosing when the device is projected to hit the market.

Dell Streak tablet, which was released earlier this year, features 5" screen with 800x480 resolution and is based on Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD 8250 (1GHz) system-on-chip with Adreno 200 graphics. The slate is equipped with 512MB ROM, 512MB SDRAM, 2 GB non-user accessible MicroSD for system and applications files, microSD card slot, 3-axis accelerometer, 5.0MP camera, front facing camera, Wi-Fi (802.11b/g), Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, GPS with A-GPS and so on. The Streak supports UMTS, GSM, EDGE, HSDPA and can make phone calls.

Earlier market rumours suggested that Dell's 7" and 10" tablets would hit the market in late 2010 and early 2011, respectively.

Dell has been trying to enter the market of portable gadgets for years now. In early 2000s the company already offered a lineup of personal digital assistants. However, in the smartphone era the company failed to launch any devices at all.

Who cares about Android? Make it compatible with WindowsXP and then think about Android or something else.
