.BEIJING (Dow Jones)--Dell Inc. (DELL) on Friday started selling a 10-inch tablet computer that it will offer only in China and that runs Google Inc.'s (GOOG) Android operating system, expanding its push into a product category dominated by Apple Inc.'s (AAPL) iPad.
Dell and other makers of computers and devices, such as Samsung Electronics Co. and BlackBerry maker Research In Motion Ltd., have sought to diversify their product lines and create new revenue streams by offering tablet devices, but the iPad has remained the market leader.
Dell's Streak 10 Pro tablet, priced at CNY2,999, adds to the company's Streak line of tablets, which also includes 5-inch and 7-inch devices. In February, Dell said it planned to release a 10-inch tablet running Microsoft Corp.'s (MSFT) Windows this year.
