Dell Streak – a new Android-based device with 3G support
As we have reported on several occasions, Dell has been working on a range of Android-based devices. It´s the first time, however, we have had the chance to actually show you one of these. Codenamed the Streak, the device will supposedly run version 2.0 (Éclair) of the said operating system. We are guessing this will probably be an internet-oriented gadget and the video that has appeared on the Internet reveals 5-megapixel camera, LED flash and 3.5mm. jack. According to the latest information we gathered, the Streak will sport a huge 5-inch display with WVGA resolution, microSD slot, 1,300mAh battery, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The video is predominantly focused on the capable internet browser of the device that will be controlled via multi-touch and looks quite impressive indeed. It seems the major selling point will be internet functionality, but the Streak will not be out of its element when it comes to calls either, because similarly to the Nokia N900, the built-in GSM module will allow calls over 3G networks.  




We still don´t have official information about the release date and retail price of the Dell Streak, but the rumor has it we will first see it in the US.

I thought the guy had 6 fingers on the one hand. He's gonna need all them to deal with a device that big.

why would you have a guy with 6 fingers modeling a phone... that's just bad advertisement. that's like having a bald guy in a shampoo commercial. you cant tell the phone works well because you cant stop staring at the kids hand, i even paused the video to see if he had six toes.

Ah yes...that is the question. It was a little distracting trying to focus on the phone. Then I thought at one point he was using all six fingers to handle the device and that can't be a good thing. Perhaps Dell is tryin to tell us something?

if you guys complain about "how big" it is..look at the Nokia N900 for a size compare..geez..plus this would be bit lighter due it having a touch qwerty..this is slightly like the HTC Imagio..no winmo thank god!

this is bigger than the N900 and the Imagio, the Imagio is about the same size as the TP2..this thing is huge, bigger than the HD2. I'm just saying, imagine seeing someone walking down the road w/ this thing to their ear..look at it in Mr.Sixfingers' hands. I'd still get it if it came state side, but I'd have to give it the 'strictly bluetooth device' tag..
