If the iPad is too big and an iPod or iPhone is too small, you might be a Dell Mini 5 candidate.
The Mini 5 is just a bit bigger than a big smartphone (HTC's Evo will be 4.3 inches vs. the Mini's 5 inches) but is being marketed more like a mini tablet -- but one with significantly more screen size than the market leading iPod touch from Apple (AAPL). It is powered by the same Qualcomm (QCOM) Snapdragon processor that powers HTC's latest Android phones as well. Unfortunately for Dell, it's been only show running an older version of the Android OS, version 1.6 (vs. 2.1 on the latest Android phones).
Perhaps most importantly however, the Mini 5 will launch with a big content partnership from Amazon (AMZN) which will provide the device with music, Video-on-Demand, eBooks and anything else Amazon sells.
