Dell Streak

Dell already has one entrant in the Great Tablet Race, but the company announced another tablet today at a conference in San Francisco.  Michael Dell, Dell's CEO, announced that the company will be releasing a 7-inch tablet that will run Android.  Unfortunately, there were no other specs or launch information revealed.  If you're interested in Dell's currently available tablet offerings, Michael Dell also said that the Streak would soon be available at Best Buy.

Considering how huge tablets are now, combined with the lukewarm response that the Streak has received so far, I'm not surprised to see Dell planning to launch another tablet.  The company's CFO said in the past that the low development costs of the tablet form factor will allow them to have a series of tablet devices.  What do you think Dell will have to do with their 7-inch tablet to help it stand out among the impending sea of similar products?
