Dell’s Next iPad Challenger Due in a Few Weeks

dellguy1So that seven-Inch Android tablet Michael Dell showed off at Oracle (ORCL) OpenWorld earlier this month? It’s already headed to market. This according to Dell Greater China President Amit Midha, who says the device will ship in the near future and be the first in a parade of new devices ranging in size from three inches to 10 inches.

“It was showed off at Oracle World by Michael last week and we’ll be launching very, very soon—within the next few weeks,” Midha said of the seven-inch tablet Dell (DELL) showed OpenWorld attendees. “In fact, very much in the near future we’ll be launching the seven-inch tablet as well as the additional three-inch product.”

A three-inch product? I thought the Axim was dead….

Anyway, while Android is the OS of choice for Dell’s seven-inch tablet, it won’t be ubiquitous across these new products. Midha said some will run Windows, and it’s possible that others might run Google (GOOG) Chrome.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
