Dell Bringing 10" Android Tablet (Streak 10 Pro) To China First

It's a world full of tablets, and we're just living in it. Dell's Streak 10 Pro has seemingly got lost in the mix; with so many other Android 3.0 tablets stealing the limelight, it's being an elbowing match to get coverage these days. Now, Dell's ready to introduce their own 10" Honeycomb tablet, but it won't be coming to America first. Dell has confirmed that they "are indeed working on 10" tablet products," with one in particular aimed at "prosumers." They're also working on a Windows 7-based tablet for enterprise consumers, which is due out later in the year. Evidently the company seems some pent-up demand for a Win7 tablet, signaled by their intentions to go forward with this instead of holding out for Windows 8 (or whatever it'll be called when the codename gets dropped).


The 10" Android tablet will be the Streak 10 Pro, and strangely, it'll hit Lenovo's home turf later in the summer. After launching in China, Dell will be "evaluating" launch plans for other regions and locales during the second half of 2011. Dell goes on to answer the question: "Why China?" The answer's obvious: it's home to tons of people, and Dell sees tremendous growth opportunities here. The company isn't revealing additional specifications yet, but hopefully they'll be revealed soon (along with a price). The 10" Honeycomb sector is seriously crowded, but with a name like Dell, they're definitely welcome to the party.

If they build a tablet for Windows 7 they probably will be able to do a minor hardware update and drop Windows 8 on it as soon as it is available. Not surprised they are releasing it in China first.

Dell makes some of the best panels if they can use a good quality panel they distinguish themselves from the competition.

I'm a little disappointed that we won't get this early on in the US, just because I always like to see new tablets here.

As for the Win7 tab, I just don't see the value, but I guess some people must be buying them if Dell thinks it's worthwhile to make them. I'll be interested to see Win8 tablets when they come out.

@omegadraco - I agree. Just move forward with what they have now instead of waiting for Win8. It makes good business sense.
