Dell Mini 5 to Take on iPad With Amazon, Kindle Integration?

A leaked document reveals that Dell's upcoming portable slate may feature integration with several Amazon services.

Dell's upcoming Mini 5, which was first shown publicly at this years CES will be made available in a range of colors and will also feature integration with a host of Amazon services, according to a recently leaked internal document.

The leaked information, which was originally posted on Engadget, details that the Android-powered tablet may be available in a number of "premium finishes." The document also mentions that the Mini 5 will be available in a range of colors and designs.

Beyond the personalization options, the first leaked page sadly didn't offer any other new information about Dell's upcoming tablet , simply listing its features, such as the front-facing video camera, dock connector, and capacitive touch-screen. However, a second leaked page offers some more interesting tidbits that were previously unknown.

The second page details a content partnership that Dell may be entering with Amazon. The document states that the Mini 5 will integrate with Amazon's Kindle, MP3 and Video services, and will include a Kindle reader app

Could this partnership with Amazon be seen as a move to compete with the upcoming iPad? Apple's tablet has the iTunes and iBooks Stores, so supporting Amazon's services could help Dell bring something similar to the table.

Dell have yet to confirm a solid release date or final price for the device.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
