Dell Looking Glass tablet due in November, Tegra 2 under the hood


If the flood of leaks coming out of Dell lately doesn't exactly have your heart racing, maybe this will help. Nothing like a 7-inch tablet with the highly-regarded Tegra 2 chipset under the hood to get the excitement level up, and that's exactly what we have with the Looking Glass, the latest in a string of exclusives that the crew at Engadget has been able to uncover.

While we recently heard that there would be some larger tablets coming from Dell, we didn't know the exact specs nor expect the cool name, but the Looking Glass should be a nice alternative for the "iPad is too big" crowd. Besides the Tegra 2, the larger sibling to the Streak features Android 2.1 and unfortunately the same 800 x 480 resolution. But to make things up, it will have an optional ATSC or DVB-T digital tuner module, 4Gb (?) RAM, 4Gb (?) flash storage, and a microSD slot. Rounding out the specs are 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0, plus a 1.3MP front-facing camera.

In the image above, there looks to be a AT&T U-verse application running, which would be of extreme interest to current U-verse subscribers, considering the Tegra 2 would have no problem with streaming HD video. There will be an optional HSPA 3G modem, so the possibility is there for this to end up in AT&T stores. Right now, pricing is unavailable.
