Dell Streak 5

Dell's no stranger to the tablet world, having brought the Android-powered Streak 5 and Streak 7 slates to market, and now the company has said that we can expect a new tablet device from it later this year. Speaking to Reuters, Dell Chief Commercial Officer Steve Felice said that the firm will be releasing a new consumer tablet in late 2012. Felice wouldn't offer up many details about the device, even opting not to mention which operating system the slab would be running, but he did reveal that both Android and Windows 8 are possibilities.

The last two Dell tablets weren't exactly runaway successes, but Felice promises that the company has been "taking its time" crafting this new device, saying that Dell is spending more time working on the overall ecosystem of it. It'll be interesting to see whether or not this extra time and work will pay off for Dell when the mystery slate arrives. That's likely a bit of a ways off from now considering that we just made the jump into 2012, but hey, maybe we'll be treated to an early preview of the device thanks to some leaks. More on the Dell tablet as we get it.

Ivan Aleman Yes dell is pretty good they last long. Dell is old on the industry of computers
Nic Gruwell Dell needs to die or stick to laptops and desktops
Zach Cline Jacob they aren't overgrown smartphones. What is it with people and laptops? They are getting outdated
Andrew Knabel dell is the worst.
Dylan Wacker All the dell computers we've ever had we're good enough... But not only do I already have an iPad (on it right now) but if I were to buy another tablet it would for sure be a Samsung, Motorola or something similar.
Andry Thérèse In my opinion, HTC's are far better !
Juan Jose Rios No. I have a streak 7 and the batter life is only 3 hours! I find myself using my ipad and phones more than that tablet.
Sergio Rubio I have a streak 7 and its complete garbage. I can't even give it away

Jamil Cooper Not really dell streak puts dell at back of the line.
Jake Soble I don't understand all the hate dell gets. My mac laptop died after 2 years and my dell is still alive after almost 6. Not to mention my old dell desktop I got in 03 is still kicking strong! So yes I would buy a dell tablet.
