Dell to take on iPad with ton of tablets

Five screen sizes, two or three OSes

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Dell will roll out its 7in tablet "within in the next few weeks" - along with a 3in version - but there will be a longer wait for the 10in version, a company exec has revealed.

Said official is Dell Greater China President Amit Midha, in an interview by the Wall Street Journal. Midha said the 10in Streak won't arrive for a least six more months - basically, a Q2/Q3 2011 launch.

He also said more 3in and some 4in gadgets will debut in the same timeframe, and while the 7in version - as shown by CEO Michael Dell at an Oracle convention last week - will run Google's Android, some models will come with Windows on board.

Dell hasn't ruled out - or ruled in - using Google's Chrome OS too, Midha said.

Either way, it's clear that Dell is taking a scatter gun approach to mobile internet devices: offer lots of different screen sizes and a variety of operating systems to ensure as few potential buyers get left out as possible. ®
