What are we, chopped liver? Dell has decided it would rather launch its new 10" tablet in China than in the U.S. The tablet, named "Streak 10 Pro," will target chinese "prosumers" -- a strange word for "nerds."
Oh, and we're just kidding about that chopped liver thing. Truth is, this is a smart move for Dell. The company is already big in China. Sales there grew 22 percent in the first quarter while its retail presence in China exceeds 10,000 sales points. The company has previously launched new devices in both China and Brazil.
The Honeycomb tablet is expected to compete with the iPad. It is just .47 inches thick, weighs about 1.5 pounds, has edge-to-edge glass, a brushed aluminum back, 1280-by-800 screen, front and rear-facing cameras (including a 5 megapixel camera), full 1080p video playback, an SD card slot and a Nvidia Tegra dual-core processor.
