Dell has announced plans for Streak, a 5-inch Android-based Tablet designed to provide people “on-the-go” entertainment, social connection, and navigation experience.
Early this June the Dell Streak will be available across the UK at O2 stores, O2.co.uk, The Carphone Warehouse, and later in the month at Dell.co.uk. Pricing and data plans for the UK will be announced by O2 ahead of availability.
Later this summer, Dell plans to make Streak available in the U.S.
The Dell Streak is a compact companion with a 5-inch screen and compatible with thousands of Android Market widgets, games and applications. Built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and available 3G connectivity provide access to downloading and listening to music, updating social networking status in real-time, and staying connected to friends and family through e-mail, text, IM, and voice calls.
This new Dell tablet leverages Qualcomm’s Snapdragon solution with integrated 1GHz processor to combine basic functionality, performance, and benefits of a laptop in a pocket friendly size.
“The Dell Streak hits the sweet spot between traditional smartphones and larger-screen tablets,” said Ron Garriques, president, Dell Communication Solutions Group. “Its unique size provides people new ways to enjoy, connect, and navigate their lives.”
The Dell Streak will support over-the-air updates including platform upgrades, Adobe Flash 10.1 on Android 2.2 later this year, video chat applications and other software innovations.
Integrated Google Maps with turn-by-turn navigation, street and satellite views and easily integrated social media apps for Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube will come pre-installed. The tablet comes with a high resolution 5 megapixel camera, and a VGA front facing camera.
2GB of internal dedicated storage provides space to access and download Google Android Market’s many options. The user accessible Micro SD expandable memory supports cards up to 32 GB.
