Dell Inspiron Duo Convertible: Coming To UK “Three” In February

At the beginning of November last year, news became apparent of Dell’s latest device, the “Inspiron Duo,” a convertible hybrid netbook/tablet. We covered its specifications along with offering you a video and a release date just in time for America’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping extravaganza.

Today we can tell you via SlashGear that UK network “Three” will now be releasing the Windows 7 3G-enabled device sometime next month, although an official date and price has not been confirmed. For those of you still unfamiliar with the netbook/tablet, it will include Intel’s dual-core 1.5GHz Atom N550, 2GB of RAM, 320GB hard-drive and as devicemag.com reported, a 10.1-inch capacitive touchscreen.

The idea behind Dell’s latest concept, is to offer users a unique device, something that other competitors have strived to achieve. The touchscreen as shown in the video below, rotates itself inside the bezel to face forward if wanting the netbook, and if you decide to change it to tablet mode, then the screen can be turned outwards.

Another key feature to look out for is Inspiron’s battery life, in fact 4 hours of it, and as well as this, it will come with a Crystal HD video accelerator, 2 USB 2.0 ports, headphones socket, JBL speakers amongst others. Along with positive attributes that a new device beholds, there will no doubt be negative feedback. Devicemag.com reported that one of the downsides they can see is of the device being a little “bulky” and “weighty towards the top,” this can only be put down to the position of the keyboard.

What are your thoughts on Dell’s new duo? Are you tempted, if so, how much would you be willing to pay?
