Dell Mini 5 slate conceals a Snapdragon processor
Originally codenamed the Streak, referred to as the Slate at CES, and now confirmed as the Mini 5 tablet, Dell has been extremely tight-lipped on the device, offering no details and specifications. Luckily for us, a user at the Vietnamese Tinhte forums (where the device was originally revealed) has conducted a full teardown unveiling a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor hiding inside. The Dell Blog previously stated that more details would come later, but I doubt they intended it to come like this!
The teardown also discovered that the Mini 5 has a removable 1530mAh battery rather than the previously rumored 1300mAh one and confirms the inclusion of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a SIM card slot for 3G, and microSD slots for storage expansion: one user accessible, the second being internal probably for holding Android. This adds to what we already knew of the 5-inch multi-touch screen (rumored to be 800×480) and 5MP camera with dual-LED flash. The confirmation of the powerful Snapdragon processor makes this compelling new MID even more exciting as it should provide good performance. Check out the other images of the hardware and a video of the teardown below.
