Pocket-lint reviews the Dell Inspiron Duo
I woke up this morning to a review of the Dell Inspiron Duo on Pocket-lint, one of the sites I follow. Since we haven’t talked about this tablet before and we generally don’t get much Windows tablet news through here I thought I’d share it with you. The Dell Inspiron Duo is a netbook-slash-windows tablet-slash-consumer tablet that is among the first tablets that really try to bridge the gap between full fledged computers and lightweight tablets. It has a 1366×768 pixel 10.1″ screen (a lot higher resolution than most 10″ netbooks), a capacitive touchscreen (rather than resistive) and a design that actually looks like a consumer product and not some horrible industrial accident. Unfortunately, Atom hardware and Windows OS means it’s the typical ironic netbook experience where it will lag if you use the custom touch interface but can stream 1080p video without problems. A battery life of less than 3 hours also makes this an interesting curiosity more than anything else. Still, it’s a nice proof of concept, so make sure to check out the review.
