The new Dell Streak

Yesterday, Dell announced their plans to release their tablet called the ‘Streak’. The Streak, which runs on the Android operating system, will be out in early June and will be available on the O2 network and will be available from O2.co.uk, Carphone Warehouse and  Dell.co.uk. Data and Price plans will be released closer to launch date.

The Streak has a 5″ touch screen, 5 mega pixel autofocus camera, VGA front facing camera and 2G of internal dedicated storage (MicroSD expandable memory up to 32GB). It ships with the Android OS and the device supports over the air updates. It will support Flash 10.1 when Android 2.2 is released later on this year.

The Streak has 3G, WiFi and Bluetooth capability, keeping the user constantly connected – Perfect for mobile professionals, students and general tech geeks. I for one can’t live without the internet and the size is perfect for any bag or even pocket. The browsing is a real pleasure and the screen is extremely responsive.

As far as portable tablets go, I think this is my best experience so far. Size wise it’s perfect, the screen is responsive, it has a good, solid OS and will soon support flash, which is a must have for me. The social platforms are already integrated and with the Android Market Place, the world is your oyster! I have to hand it to Dell, over the past year and a half, my impression of boring outdated laptops has been totally overturned. Dell are certainly a company to look out for these days and if you’re looking for smart, attractive gadgets, they’re bound to have one that will suit.
