In spite of the tight and tough tablet niche that has already silenced HP last year, Dell has just laid out its plan to launch its flagship consumer tablet computer for this year. Now it is important to note that Dell has already released one tablet in the market – the Dell Streak. And it was doing little to elevate the company into the likes of Apple – which is the ultimate goal of every device manufacturer nowadays. But Michael Dell and his team are resilient. According to Reuters, Dell has been waiting for the right time to re-enter once again into the tablet niche, citing this year as the perfect time to release its next-generation tablet. Steve Felice, Dell’s Chief Commercial Officer said, “We have been taking our time. The general failure of everyone that’s tried to introduce a tablet outside of Apple suggested Dell made a prudent choice. You will see us enter this market in a bigger way toward the end of the year. So we are not really deemphasizing it, we are really being very careful how we enter it.”

So far little has been known about the tablet’s specs although Dell’s roadmap showed them to be using both Windows 8 and Android in their labs. Felice added, “There hasn’t been a lot of advancement and it’s given Microsoft a good window to come into the market with Windows 8. I like the touch Windows 8 feature. We like Windows 8 but we continue to develop with Android as well. We are still going to be more choice-driven, based on the feedback we get from customers.”
