Dell was noticeably cagey at CES when they revealed the Mini 5 tablet, not being too forthcoming with specs nor fondling-time. Thankfully a user at the Tinhte forums has snaffled one and discovered some very interesting internals.

The Mini 5 has a 1GHz Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm, which should mean it's fast enough to do a healthy amount of charging and video hopping on. Other specs we didn't know about but guessed anyway are all present: Wi-Fi, a 3G SIM card slot, and 1,530mAh battery. It's got two microSD card slots—one for people to use, the second an inaccessible one presumably for storing Android or somesuch on.

That's all joining the components Dell were confident enough to announce two weeks ago at CES: Bluetooth, a multitouch 5-inch screen, 5.0-megapixel camera, plasticky finish. Vietnamese video proof of the Dell's specs, below. [Tinhte forums via Slashgear]

Hmm, despite being 5 inches across, the battery size is nearly the same as the Nexus One. I hope they throw in a beefier one before (or should I say, if) they hit production.
