We've been intrigued by Dell's Inspiron Duo convertible laptop ever since we first spied it several weeks back, and now it's here. Dell announced the funky notebook yesterday, which sports a flip-hinge design so you can use it as a traditional netbook or as a tablet.
"Dell is changing the shape of computing, with products that usher in new experiences and allow people to stay connected to each other and the content they love from almost anywhere," said Sam Burd, vice president, Dell Consumer, Small and Medium Business Product Group. "The new Inspiron duo’s dual purpose delivers one-touch access to great content and yet offers the functionality of a full keyboard for more intensive applications. We’re excited to offer such an innovative and unique design to our customers."
The Inspiron Duo sports a 10.1-inch capacity multitouch screen (1366x768), Intel Atom N550 dual-core processor, 2GB of DDR3-800 RAM, 250GB/5400RPM or 320GB/7200RPM hard drive, a pair of USB 2.0 ports, headphone port, 1.3MP webcam, optional Audio Station sock with 7-in-1 card reader, JBL speakers, and two more USB 2.0 ports, and Windows 7 Home Premium.
One of the coolest gadgets that was shown off at IDF earlier this year was Dell's Inspiron Duo, a hybrid netbook/tablet with a funky twistable screen. The Duo has the potential to be a big hit, offering the best of both worlds with a 10.1-inch screen and hardware keyboard.
Unfortunately, we still don't know much more about this potential game-changing device, such as when it will launch, how much will it cost, and what hardware it will come with. What we do have, however, is a teaser video that Dell put out showing the Inspiron Duo from a variety of angles, as well as shoved into a JBL speaker dock.
