After its brief demo on-stage at IDF 2010 earlier this week, Dell’s rotating Inspiron Duo netbook/tablet has stepped out for a slightly longer preview. The company is still keeping most details – and the prototype hardware, for that matter – close to its chest, refusing to discuss battery life or pricing, but at least we now have some close-up video of that slick converting mechanism.

NetbookNews, jkkmobile and UMPC Portal all spent some time with the Inspiron Duo, and the general opinion is tentatively positive. The thick bezel and potential heft throw up warning flags, but people are finding the form factor appealing and the dual-core Atom N550 processor looks to be capable of gaming, even.
