Dell Mini 5 to be the vanguard of 'a family of tablets'" .

A classroom of tablets or a clasroom of desktop computers?
How long before tablet computers are in every learner's back pack? 

Check out: "Dell Mini 5 to be the vanguard of 'a family of tablets'" - www.engadget.com http://www.engadget.com/2010/02/26/dell-mini-5-to-be-the-vanguard-of-a-family-of-tablets/?icid=engadget-iphone-url
Well isn't this good to know. The Mini 5 isn't even coming out for at least another month, yet already we're hearing Dell has big plans for what's to follow. Wired has the dish straight from Neeraj Choubey, GM of Dell's tablet division, that there will be "a family of tablets" which will "scale up to a variety of sizes." It appears there will be a common feature set throughout the forthcoming portfolio, so it's likely going to be Android all the way, while Choubey also shared his company's intention to bundle "inexpensive data plans" with the new devices -- indicating a belief that carriers will accede to such ambitious ideas. And speaking of network operators, in a separate interview with Laptop, the loquacious gentleman has confirmed that Dell's working with ATamp;T on bringing the Mini 5 to the masses. Good to know, indeed -- now how about a release date?
