VIDEO: Michael Dell Shows Off the Mini 5

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 14 comments

Dell very briefly showed off its 5-inch MID, the Mini 5, at CES this year. With little to go on, we were forced to resort to a demonstration video from 2009. Now, we have something a little more official.

One of the lads over at TechCrunch recently stopped Michael Dell (CEO) at World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. The Chief Executive stood in the snow in his parka and fingerless gloves and gave a brief demo of the Mini 5.

Mr Dell detailed that the device packs a 5-megapixel camera, runs on Android, has 3G and will be "out in a couple of months." We're intrigued!

    Not a Dell fan for the most part, but from the quick overview it looks pretty good. I hope they've addressed some of the bugs in the Android operating system.

    Can't wait to hear the tech inside of this gadget.

    Pretty funny, the interviewer thought Michael Dell was just some salesman.

    Looks like a nice tablet. Another positive step for the Android OS, the best mobile OS available.

    I want to slap that interviewer in the face for being disrespectful. He was being very pushy and trying to get information that Mr. Dell was reluctant to give out.

    Good for Dell! I think Apple thinks its all and a bag of chips and their not. They just know how to put a bunch of China parts together that look nice. Finally the rest are starting to do the same for less. Steve Jobs can sit at home with his iPad. I will find something better.

    That's why there is competition. I believe that "tech" companies are listening to what the people want and not what there (hint hint) Steve Jobs wants. Yes, he changes the tech landscape and instills competition. That's good. I believe that most apple products are good, but do not offer anything new. I cannot believe that people are willing to purchase a apple PC with an Intel processor for more than it’s worth. Listen people, it has an Intel processor and the product cause more.
