Dell Mini 5: Take that, iPad?

A video posted by TechCrunch on YouTube shows Michael Dell using the Dell Mini 5 Android tablet. He swipes the home screen a few times and says simply that it will be coming out “in a few months.” Notably, the device on the video is extremely responsive, has a 5MP camera, 3G, and of course, has a touch screen. Unlike the iPad, you will be able to download apps that haven’t gone through a bizarre approval process, you will be able to take pictures, and (presumably) you will be able to watch Flash videos. And like all Android devices, you will also be able to listen to Pandora music while surfing the web (pick your multitasking jab here). It’s a bit smaller than the iPad, which may or may not be a good thing, depending on your preference.

I might have just found my dream version of the iPad, IF it doesn’t cost me an arm and a leg…
