Dell’s New Inspiron Duo Netbook / Tablet Hybrid Raises Eyebrows at IDF 2010

We’re all familiar with the original Tablet PCs that feature the hinge-based twist-and-fold display that lays flat to input data. Now, Dell is introducing a new form factor that swivels a display in its curved bezel to lay down even flatter and transform from an Atom-powered netbook to a media tablet with its own tablet UI layer on top Windows 7 (this is new). That’s all the details we have for now, thanks to Engadget, but the pics they’ve posted look great. What do you think? Is it too gimmicky or is it something worth buying? A teaser video from the IDF show floor is attached below.
