Dell Streak tablet PC powered by Google Android across Europe

Dell joined tablet device market with “Streak” – also known as Mini 5. Streak is smaller than most tablets with a 5in (12.5cm) screen and runs Google’s Android operating system. Analysts said it was a “significant” launch that marked Dell’s return to handheld computer market. “This’s a data device first and a voice device second,” Tavis Butler of Dell. Reports suggest Dell also has 7in and 10in tablet planned for the future.

Touchscreen Streak will initially launch across Europe, followed by US. First model comes with 3G and wi-fi connectivity, 16GB of storage, GPS and two cameras; one on front and one on back. Unlike many other Android tablets, owners will be able to download apps from Android Marketplace. Google has blocked some tablet makers from installing marketplace app on many devices larger than a mobile phone. In addition, Mr Butler said that Dell had developed some of its own software for device for e.g. to access social networks such as Facebook.
