Yeah, you made me feel, shiny and new... We digress. That's jkkmobile's finger in the photo above, testing out Microsoft Surface Globe on the Dell Inspiron Duo convertible's swiveling 10-inch screen -- a rite of passage that you can watch after the break in all its low-res glory."</em></p><p><object width="600" height="360" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/cSM7FHZBCIU&amp;feature=player_embedded&amp;ap=%26fmt=18" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/cSM7FHZBCIU&amp;feature=player_embedded&amp;ap=%26fmt=18" /></object></p><p>The video tells the story here, a convertible tablet prototype from Dell, with a 10-inch swivel screen, keyboard and touchpad, and weighing in at 1.4 kg (slightly over 3 pounds). Interesting how the screen swivels within the frame. Additional details were scarse, and the journalists were not allowed to handle the Duo, and of course had to be told several times to not touch. Dell (and Intel) may be onto something here!</p>

I'm glad to hear that it was a piece of black tape on the front of the screen - I couldn't figure out why Dell would do something SO ugly...!
