Dell Prepping "Sparta" and "Athens" Netbooks, Looking Glass Pro, and Streak (Mini 5) Variants For Everyone

Labels: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Dell looks like they have let another leak slip. It looks like they're gearing up a netbook tablet, codenamed the "Sparta", and it's said to be sporting an 11-inch display with a 1,024 x 768 resolution, an ARM CPU, optional 3G / WiFi / Bluetooth support, and a "unique" swivel. The other device is the "Athens" which will have a 0.9kg body and it'll also sport an 11-inch display along with an ARM CPU and optional 3G / WiFi / Bluetooth support. Either of these will be capable of running on Android / Moblin (possibly MeeGo, since it's an old slide). They both should be launching this Fall, but expect some delays.

Dell also appears to be working on the Looking Glass Pro (Android-based) tablet as well, but it'll be very similar to the non-Pro model. The only upgrade the Pro model will have is an HD display and an integrated digital TV tuner. This could be set for a Q1 2011 release date.

Last, but not least, it's the Dell Streak aka the Mini 5 MID and it's said to be coming in various variants. There'll be one for US (which we already know), one for Europe (Vodafone), and one for China (China Telecom, China Unicom, and China Mobile) as well. These are all expected to launch later this year.

Most of these dates appear to be off so expect a couple of months delay.
