Dell Streak - Android based mini tablet gets reviewed


I don't know if it's the image quality or the the fact that I'm bored with seeing the same brand all the time (who said HTC?) – but the Dell Streak sure looks AMAZING…

It can be related as a gigantic smartphone, but in fact it's a very small tablet. At least in the way it was designed (landscape mode, customized Android UI…)

According to BGR:
"A giant amongst smartphones, the Streak features a 5″ WVGA capacitive touchscreen display, 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, 16GB of internal memory, support for microSD cards up to 32GB, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 2.1, 7.2Mbps HSDPA and 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. To debut with Android 1.6, Dell says the Streak has been “designed with the future in mind” and will be subject to OTA updates which will bring Adobe Flash 10.1, Android 2.2 “Froyo”, and video chat apps to the Streak before the year’s end."

According to CNet.UK:
"This beast makes giant phones such as the HTC HD2 look positively tiny, thanks to a 5-inch screen that makes the Streak clock in at 152 by 78 by 10mm. It does make phone calls, and you can even hold it up to your face if you don't mind looking like a pin-head, but Dell insists the Streak is primarily meant for Web surfing rather than voice chat."

Here's a good video with some demonstration of this gigantic smartphone (or extra tiny tablet – depending on how you relate to it…)
