Remember that tablet PC that Michael Dell quickly flashed from the stage of Oracle OpenWorld last week? He didn't provide any details at the time - but today, Dell's Greater China President tells the Wall Street Journal that the 7-inch tablet will be available in the next few weeks.

This particular tablet, however, is only one in a "whole slew" of new products in the next 6-12 months, executive Amit Midha told the WSJ. He said:

It was showed off at Oracle World by Michael last week and we'll be launching very, very soon—within the next few weeks... In fact, very much in the near future we'll be launching the seven-inch tablet as well as the additional three-inch product.

He said the tablet will run Google's Android OS but noted that other new products will also run Microsoft's Windows OS but didn't provide specifics. He also said the company is still weighing use of Google's Chrome OS.
