‘Looking Glass’ is what the new Tablet PC from Dell is going to be known as. It shares a lot of commonality with the 5-inch Streak and among the few things that makes the Looking Glass different from the 5-inch Streak is a bigger 7-inch display and a Tegra 2 processor. Also, the new Dell Tablet will be running Android 2.1 unlike Android 2.0 that the 5-inch Streak is based on.
The Looking Glass will also have a forward facing 1.3 mega pixel camera, while also being compliant with WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 and 3G connectivity options. There’s also a TV tuner module that you can opt for and will let you watch digital TV in ATSC, ATSC-MH and DVB-T, which means it is good enough to play North American or European TV channels.
The Looking Glass will also be compatible with Mp3, WMA, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, AMR, Midi and WAV audio formats and supports H.263/H.264, 3GP, MPEG4, WMV and FLV video formats. Further, the new Dell tablet will also feature USB 2.0, a G-sensor, A-GPS, and e-compass. Power comes from a 2100 mAh battery.
The Dell tablet will have a RAM of 4GB with another 4GB of flash memory while the SDHC Slot will allow memory to be stretched up to 32GB. However, on the flip side, the new Dell Looking Glass has a resolution of 800 x 400 which is the same as in the Streak in spite of there being an increase in screen size by 2 inches.
Weighing just 17.6 ounces, the Looking Glass sports extremely compact dimensions of 7.8 x 5.12 x 0.5 inches and should be there for the taking from this November onwards.
