Dell on Tuesday used the Intel Developer Forum to show off a 10-inch touch-screen computer that converts from a tablet to a Netbook with the flip of a screen.

Dell's Dave Zavelson was joined by Intel's Doug Davis to give a first look at the Inspiron Duo Netbook/laptop hybrid that has thus far been only rumored and known by the codename Sparta.

Running Windows 7 Home Premium with the N550 chip, the device has a screen that rotates in its frame to be used as as touch-screen tablet on one side and converts to become the keyboard of a Netbook when flipped and opened.
