Report: Dell Windows 7 tablet due in the fall
Dell’s upcoming Windows 7 tablet might not hit store shelves until fall, a new report claims.
Citing an anonymous source, Forbes is reporting that Dell plans to launch its 10-inch Windows 7-based tablet as early as September.
Dell hasn’t confirmed exactly when it might launch its Windows 7 tablet. When the company unveiled the device in February, it said that the tablet would hit store shelves by the middle of 2011. That announcement preceded a leak of Dell’s reported “tablet roadmap,” which indicated that the company could launch its Windows 7 tablet as early as mid-May. The roadmap also included mention of a Windows 8 tablet that could hit store shelves in the first quarter of 2012.
And this isn’t even the official word yet… I wonder how many iPads will be sold by then? Is Dell really interested in competing in this category?
