A representative for Dell, the world’s third largest maker of personal computers, said in an interview that the company’s slate-type personal computer with 7” screen would be available in the following weeks. In addition, there will be a 10” and 3” models.

“Dell will launch its seven-inch tablet in the next few weeks and a 10” tablet within 6-12 months,” said Amit Midha, the president of Dell in China, reports the Wall Street Journal.

Mr. Midha also reiterated the plans to release tablets with 3”, 4” and 10” screens in the future. Even though the current Streak with 5” screen is based on Google Android operating system and the forthcoming 7” model will also use the same OS, he reported added that some of the new products among the slew of tablets from Dell will also run Microsoft Corp.'s Windows operating system, without naming specific products or whether it would be Windows 7 or Windows Phone 7”.

Michael Dell, the head of Dell, has already demonstrated the 7” slate from the company at a conference, emphasizing the importance of tablets for the company in particular and for the industry in general. Given the current confirmation by the president of Dell China, it is highly likely that the 7” model will emerge ahead of the Christmas holiday season.

Unfortunately, nothing is presently unknown about the hardware inside Dell’s 7” slate. The only thing for sure is that Android suggest an ARM-based system-on-chip.
