Just as we heard news about the Apple iPad 2's impending Philippine release, Dell has accidentally "outed" the juicy deets on their new tablets. Due out later this year, the new slates could very well give the iPad 2 a run for its money – especially since it's covering both the Android and Windows 7 bases.
First up is the Dell Streak Pro which boasts an Nvidia Tegra T25 "3D-capable" processor and Android 3.0 "Honeycomb" for the OS. It's due out in June for a still undisclosed price, although given that it's more than a month away, we'd say it'll go for less than P35,000. It should.
Next is the Dell Latitude XT-3 which will sport an Intel Huron Rover Core CPU in either the i3, i5, or i7 variant. It's not exactly a tablet in its strictest sense (it's a Windows 7 convertible tablet), although we've no doubt that Dell will market it as a potential iPad replacement.
Finally, there's the Dell Latitude ST, a 10-incher with a 1,366 x 768-pixel (yowza!) screen which will also run Windows 7. Intel's new Oak Trail CPU (clocked at 1.5GHz) will run the show alongside a capacious 128GB solid-state drive.
If all goes well, these new Dells should have no trouble going head to head with Apple. If Samsung fails to capitalize on their early lead, that is.
