The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Amit Midha, Dell's President for Greater China, said in an interview that the Dell Looking Glass tablet shown off by Dell CEO Mr. Dell last week will “be launching very, very soon—within the next few weeks," likely in a move to get the product out in time for the holiday shopping season.
The Dell Looking Glass is a 7” Android Tablet which was originally rumored for a release in November, and if the statement above is anything to go by, Dell will be delivering on that promise with a launch sometime in October or early November.
The Looking Glass is supposed to sport a 7” 800 x 480 display, Tegra 2 processor, 4GB of RAM, 4GB of onboard storage, SDHC slot, and a 1.3MP camera.
According to the Wall Street Journal article, Dell will also be releasing many more devices “in the next 6-12 months” in sizes ranging from 3”, 4”, and 10”. We know little about the 10” model (which will have a very similar size to Apple's iPad), but the 3” and 4” devices mentioned are very likely the Dell Thunder, Smoke, and Flash that we saw leaked back in April.
Mr. Midha also mentioned that Dell is also working on devices running Windows, but the Wall Street Journal didn't make a differentiation between Windows for PCs and Windows Mobile, so I'll assume that Mr. Midha implied Windows for PCs, but on a tablet device as well as a Windows Phone 7 based smartphone, to cover both possibilities.
