Dell shows off second Android tablet at Oracle event

Dell will release a new, seven-inch tablet running on Google's Android platform to complement its five-inch Streak device, according to CEO Michael Dell.

Speaking at the Oracle OpenWorld conference in San Francisco on Wednesday, Dell showed off the unnamed tablet but provided no details about the device's specifications, pricing or release date. He added that the company will likely garner around $60 billion in revenue this year.

Dell said the Dell Streak will be available in Best Buy stores next month. AT&T Mobility (NYSE:T) launched the Streak in August for $300 with a two-year contract. It also retails for $599 unlocked. AT&T also is selling Dell's Android-powered smartphone for $100 with a two-year contract.

Dell has indicated in the past that it will launch more tablet devices, but after the Streak debuted the company said that its sales were immaterial to Dell's enormous revenue. The company joins a crowded list of competitors seeking to grab market share from Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad. Research In Motion (NASDAQ:RIMM) is reportedly working on a tablet, and Samsung, LG, Motorola (NYSE:MOT), Hewlett-Packard and others have indicated they plan to release tablets as well.
