Dell Mini 5 to Take on iPad With Amazon, Kindle Integration?

A leaked document reveals that Dell's upcoming portable slate may feature integration with several Amazon services.

Dell's upcoming Mini 5, which was first shown publicly at this years CES will be made available in a range of colors and will also feature integration with a host of Amazon services, according to a recently leaked internal document.

The leaked information, which was originally posted on Engadget, details that the Android-powered tablet may be available in a number of "premium finishes." The document also mentions that the Mini 5 will be available in a range of colors and designs.

Beyond the personalization options, the first leaked page sadly didn't offer any other new information about Dell's upcoming tablet , simply listing its features, such as the front-facing video camera, dock connector, and capacitive touch-screen. However, a second leaked page offers some more interesting tidbits that were previously unknown.

The second page details a content partnership that Dell may be entering with Amazon. The document states that the Mini 5 will integrate with Amazon's Kindle, MP3 and Video services, and will include a Kindle reader app

Could this partnership with Amazon be seen as a move to compete with the upcoming iPad? Apple's tablet has the iTunes and iBooks Stores, so supporting Amazon's services could help Dell bring something similar to the table.

Dell have yet to confirm a solid release date or final price for the device.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
