Dell's newly leaked tablet and smartphone roadmap shows the new handsets on offer.

The most interesting part of the leak was the new Windows 8 tablet, expected to be launched in 2012.

Dell's new tablets are named Peju and Rosemount. Peju, a 10-inch tablet, may feature the Windows 8 operating system, making it the first to come with the yet to be released OS..

Rosemount is expected to be the Dell's first Windows 7 tablet, bearing a 1366x768 HD 10-inch display scheduled to arrive in June. The Peju and Rosemount tablets will compete with the likes of other similar tablets like the Apple iPad 2, Motorola Xoom and Notion Ink Adam.

There is some doubt as to the authenticity of the list, as Microsoft said last October that the next version of Windows is two years away. Windows 8 is supposed to combine features of Windows 7 and Windows XP, the two Windows operating systems preferred by users to date..
