The Dell Inspiron Duo hybrid was just officially unveiled, answering many of the questions those early ads raised. The 10.1 touchscreen netbook with rotating display is unlike anything we have seen so far on the market so the excitement that greets it is completely understandable.
On the inside you will find a dual-core Intel Atom N550 processor, 2GB of RAM, a Broadcom Crystal HD accelerator, 250GB of storage (there are also higher-capacity options), and Windows 7 Home Premium. The 10.1” display resolution is 1366 x 768 pixels and it uses the capacitive touch technology.
Dell has also equipped the Inspiron Duo with a custom Stage UI that is launched automatically when you flip the display and turn the device into a slate. It’s got an emphasis on social networking but also has Dell’s MusicStage, VideoStage, PhotoStage, and BookStage touch-optimized apps.
All that combined with that ultra-sleek design certainly makes up for one hell of a Christmas present. And Dell will manage to bring it to the market just in time – the hybrid will start shipping in the first week of December starting from 549 US dollars.
