Dell Athens & Sparta netbooks tipped, plus Looking Glass Pro HD tablet

Dell have been piloting a pretty leaky ship recently, with smartphones and tablets spilling out all over the place, and next up are the company's MID, netbook and tablet intentions.  AndroidCentral have acquired an image showing that Dell plan a convertible netbook/tablet, the "Sparta" in Q3 2011, which will have a nifty rotating touchscreen that pivots within its bezel, and a "true" netbook, the "Athens", later that quarter.  Going by the logos, they'll be available either with Android or Moblin (though we're guessing the latter was used prior to the Nokia/Intel MeeGo announcement).

Nokia tablet “as early as fall” reckons hopeful analyst

Nokia tablet “as early as fall” reckons hopeful analyst

Nokia's Internet Tablet range died with the introduction of the N900, having failed to set the market alight in any great respect, but at least one analyst reckons the Finnish company is ramping up to take on Apple's iPad.  Rodman Renshaw analyst Ashok Kumar - said to be "close to Nokia's technology partners" by TheStreet - is half predicting and half hoping that Nokia jump into the tablet segment again, saying that "this is a new window, and Nokia had better be at the starting gate if and when the product category takes off."

Mobile OS Madness in Barcelona

Another Mobile World Congress in Barcelona has come and gone, and this one was clearly Microsoft’s show. “Windows Phone 7 Series” is nearly impossible to say out loud, but the OS itself meets the user interface bar set by Apple and Palm while tying together all of Microsoft’s consumer brands. I got hands on time with a prototype and was impressed, but if you want an early look yourself, you don’t need to be an analyst with access to high level Microsoft executives, you just need to scrape together $220 and buy a Zune HD. Zune lends WP7 both its user interface conventions and its PC software for media management, synchronization, and purchase. Microsoft still needs to convince developers to support the platform, but the company is relevant in mobile again for the first time in years.
