O2 to get exclusive on Dell tablet?


The eagerly awaited Mini 5 tablet from Dell also known as Streak will be coming to the UK on O2 from next month.

The announcement came from Michael Dell, founder and chief executive of the hardware giant, during a Citrix conference in San Francisco.

Showing off the device at the conference, Dell told the crowd: "This [tablet] will be available starting next month, first with our partner 02 Telefonica in Europe, then later this summer with our pretty good partner here in the United States, AT&T."

The Mini 5 was first paraded around by Dell during the CES conference in Las Vegas back in January, as well as at Mobile World Congress later in the year, but consumers have had a long wait to get their hands on one.

The exact launch date and pricing has yet to be unveiled.

A spokesperson from Dell told IT PRO they were unable to confirm any of the details from Michael Dell's speech while O2 said it had yet to make any announcements around the company's product portfolio.
