Dell tablet-netbook combo PC out next week

Duo in-bound

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Dell will begin selling its Inspiron Duo laptop-cum-tablet next week, it has been claimed.

The gadget, which was first shown off in September at the Intel Developer Forum, is a 10in netbook with a screen that pivots within the lid's bezel so the machine can be used in the usual way or as a tablet.

Moles cited by Cnet say Dell will finally bring the gadget to market on 23 November - Doctor Who's 47th birthday, coincidentally.

When first demo'd, the Duo was said by Dell to be running Windows 7 Home Premium, suggesting it will deliver an above-par netbook spec, almost certainly using Intel's dual-core Atom N550 processor.

Alas, there's no word yet on pricing - or when Dell will bring this boy to the UK. ®
