An Unannounced Dell Tablet Breaks Both Cover And The Traditional Form Factor Mold

Dell is working on a new tablet. That alone isn’t news. Nearly every CE company right now is likely “working on a new tablet.” However, the crazy kids over at Engadget just posted a round of photos showing off an unannounced Dell tablet slider. That’s news.

What we’re looking at is a clear departure from the traditional tablet form factor. A sliding drawer hides a keyboard reminiscent of 3rd party virtual split ‘pads and a rear camera is embedded on the convex back. But that’s where the details stop. There’s no word on when this slider will hit, for how much, or what OS it’s running. (My money is on Android 3.1) I guess we’re going to have wait until the next round of leaks for that info.
