Written By Sam on 24 September 2010

Dell seems to have reiterated its resolve to take on Apple’s iPad head on by confirming that it is indeed planning to release a 7-inch tablet PC, being referred to as the Looking Glass. The news comes close of the heels of the PC maker’s announcement of the Inspiron Atom-based tablet with swivel screen and keyboard.

Details pertaining to the 7-inch tablet are still sketchy at this moment. However, reports suggest the tablet will come with a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 250 processor capable of significantly improving the performance as compared to its Streak, a hybrid device that lives in the space between a smartphone and other larger tablets or Netbooks. That said, the 7-inch screen-size is expected to restrict the resolution to the standard 800×480 resolution. And for those who prefer higher resolution screens, the company is understood to be planning a 10-inch display version as well.

As far as technical specs of the Looking Glass are concerned, the tablet features an internal 4GB memory with expandable SDHC slot. It comes with a 1.3MP snapper along with other standard features thrown in. We hear, the tablet will be integrated with an ATSC or DVB-T TV tuner together with AT&T U-verse TV access. There are no details on the price and availability of the product yet. Keep watching this space for more.
