Dell 7-inch Android tablet launching in 'next few weeks'

Dell Windows OS tablets also on the cards

10-inch Android tablet also tipped to launch in the next 6-12 months

Dell looks set to unleash a 7-inch Android tablet in just a matter of weeks according to comments made by Dell's Greater China President Amit Midha.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Midha also confirmed that a 10-inch version of the Dell tablet Michael Dell waved about last week, will launch within 6-12 months.

But the tablet frenzy does not end there, Midha added that "a whole slew" of new products will hit the market in the next year which includes 3-inch and 4-inch devices.

While Midha confirmed that the 7 and 10-inch Dell tablets will run on the Google Android platform, other products will also run on Microsoft Windows, but did not reveal what products they would be.

iPad rivals have been coming thick and fast with the Samsung Galaxy Tab and the BlackBerry PlayBook emerging in recent weeks. After the impressive Dell Streak, we could soon find ourselves with another tablet to add to that growing iPad-challenger list.
