What's in store with this Slate?
First off, the Dell Streak is an Android 2.1 device, an interesting twist from Dell. One thing we can get used to with Dell is Windows, it being their OS of choice for all devices, desktop, laptop, and mobile, since their inception. The Streak is their first effort using Linux, in a new time period and new market.
In detail, the device sports a 5" WVGA Screen to watch the show on, a powerful 1GHZ Snapdragon processor, and the usual Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and even 7Mbps capable HDSPA. Toss in a 5 Mega Pixel camera, GPS, and 16 GB of internal memory, and you have one versatile device!
Unlike the PDAs and previous devices of Dell's Business end. This open ended slate seems to be a hybrid device. Rather than a straightforward smartphone or a limited GPS device, it seems to do both. The 5" screen is massive, something you'd typically not expect for smartphones, and all that extra GPS may be overkill.
But, like any hybrid, it means versatility. it sounds to us like this Streak has got enough juice under the hood to do plenty of work.
Of course, there's just one small problem...
