Dell Mini 5 Gets Mini Demo from Michael Dell


The following video is less than a minute long, but it’s all we needed.  It only takes 43 seconds for us to consider ourselves officially hooked on the Android-based Dell Mini 5 tablet.  Michael Dell (CEO) was in Switzerland at the World Economic Forum where a member of the CrunchGear team was able to catch up with him, camera in tow.

Dell repeats a couple of times that it will be coming in “in a few months” but plays coy when it comes to price.  CrunchGear speculates that the cost of the Mini 5 could be around $1,098 before any carrier subsidizes it.  Specs include a 5 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 3G, powered by Android 1.6.  We’re fans of the $30, all-you-can-use data plan available to the iPad, even if it is with AT&T.

    That looks like alot of fun to surf the net on.

    Might be a bit of a brick to hold up to your ear for a phone call- not to mention carry in your pocket..

    but sometimes having a giant screen is really nice.

    That price is BS….

    It's the price that a prototype is going for right now… It's not related to the release price….

    Can't believe this BS is getting around….
