Dell has both 7-inch and 10-inch tablets on the way - the former will launch in the next few weeks

Michael Dell has already confirmed that a 7-inch follow-up to the Streak was on its way, and now The Wall Street Journal cites Dell Greater China President Amit Midha as saying the device will arrive sometime in "the next few weeks".

He also noted that a 10-inch version will arrive within 6-12 months and that Dell is working on "a whole slew" of new products - including 3-inch and 4-inch devices.

Midha went on to say that the 7-inch tablet would run Android, but claimed that some of the other devices in question would run Windows. Dell is also looking at Chrome as a possible OS.

So it looks like we won't have to wait too much longer for a tablet from Dell that offers a bit more real estate than an awkwardly sized 5-inch Streak, but we have to wonder what a 3 and 4-inch device would offer that a smartphone doesn't.
