Rumor: Dell's 10-inch Windows 7 Slate Not Coming Until Fall

Last week, a senior Dell executive dismissed the iPad’s chances of enterprise glory, citing concerns about its high price. But he seemed quite confident of his company’s “considered approach to tablets.” He touted Dell’s decision of giving people a lot of choices through a “multi-OS” (Android and Windows 7)  tablet strategy. However, if a new rumor is to be believed, the Windows 7 component of that multi-OS strategy is unlikely to appear before fall. Hit the jump for more.

The 10-inch Windows 7 slate Dell announced back in February at its Dell Means Business event in San Francisco is unlikely to arrive in stores until fall , according to Forbes. While Dell was earlier said to be targeting mid-2011 for the release of the enterprise-centric tablet, a company insider has informed the magazine that the Intel-powered tablet isn’t expected to come out anytime before September. However, the source did not provide any reasons for the delay.
