Dell to launch Google Android tablet in UK?

Source predicts 5in touchscreen device for CES

Various sources claim Dell could be gearing up to reveal a new tablet device at January's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) running Google's Android operating system.

A source, speaking to Pocket-Lint, said the Android tablet is expected to feature a 5in touchscreen. The product, which could be the previously sighted Dell Streak, is rumoured to launch in the UK first, with a US date to follow.

Word on Dell's next foray into the tablet market comes at an interesting time, with ongoing rumors of an Apple tablet, and plenty of discussion surrounding Fusion Garage's recently renamed JooJoo.

When pressed further about Dell's plans, the company officially responded with a typical cover-all statement: "Dell continually develops and tests new products that extend the mobile experience. We have not made any product announcements and do not comment on speculation, rumour, or unannounced products."

Of course rumours surrounding a Dell tablet are nothing new, but it looks like we will have to wait and see what comes out of Las Vegas this January at CES.
