Dell prototype tablet spotted, featuring a slideout split-QWERTY keyboard

What's more, it appears that there might be a touchpad between the two halves of the keyboard, like a notebook. Of course, from the pictures below, you can see the obvious drawback to such a design: added bulk. And as we all know, the iPad has trained consumers to expect a sexy form factor along with their function. And a fat tablet might not survive.
The unidentified tablet also features a rear camera, but that's all we know thus far. Even the lone press still gives us no indication of what OS it will feature. But we think that the press still means Dell is considering bringing this buxom beauty to market. What do you think? Is the keyboard worth the extra thickness?
Why is everything so Apple on phone arena ...for example the first time i've seen this kind of keyboard was on windows 8 presentation ... not that i gave a crap about MS or Apple but the way they praise Apple is annoying .

For people that do any amount of real typing (and know how to type), the thickness won't matter. Since it is a 7-incher, it isn't that big or heavy to start with. Now if they'd just put a Pixel Qi screen on it, that would be a killer ebook reader and very totable web device.
