New things from Dell: Tablets, phones, laptops


4245200103_d4bc5390aaNot to be left out of the deluge of new releases at CES, Dell is giving us a sneak peak at their new 5-inch tablet concept and Android-smartphone for AT&T. There’s also some new laptops and things, you know, if you’re into that.

Unfortunately, these pictures are about all we have on the tablet concept so far. The 5.0 megapixel camera is visible on the back, and I feel safe assuming multi-touch support.

Now laptop time. We’ll start with the Alienware M11x, aptly named for the 11 inch screen size. The primary selling point seems to be that it is a gaming laptop, smaller than 12 in. No word on any concrete specs, but who would want to be playing games on such a small form-factor? Not me. I take my Diablo 3 Fallout 3 straight, thank you very much. The photo gallery seems to show a FireWire 400 port, card reader, eSATA, HDMI out, ethernet, and wait a minute, a VGA port? Really? No word on a street date, but its supposed to be less than a thousand bucks.gallery_M11x_img1
