Dell has just announced that it is going to introduce the highly-anticipated Dell Streak later this week. This cutting-edge tablet phone will include a 5-inch touchscreen, a 1 GHz processor, and support for AT&T’s 3G network.
Those who signed up to pre-order this device a few weeks ago will be able to make a purchase on Thursday, while everyone else will be able to put in their order on Friday.
The Dell Streak is going to sell for $300 with a new AT&T service contract. Those who want to forgo the contract can get this tablet phone for $550.
Preview of the Dell Streak
Dell’s tablet phone will be well supplied with high-end features, starting with its 5-inch, WVGA (800 x 480 pixel) capacitive touchscreen.
It is going to run Google’s mobile operating system on a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The device is going to debut with Android OS 1.6, but an upgrade to Android OS 2.2 is coming. On top of Google’s standard user interface will be a UI developed by Dell.
It will come with 16 GB of storage in the form of a removable microSD memory card. Users will have the option of switching this out for a 32 GB card.
The Streak is going to include a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera on its back, and a front-facing one for video conferencing. In addition, it will include a 3.5-mm headphone jack.
The tablet is going to be bundled with a suite of entertainment, communications and productivity software, including a highly-capable web browser, email software, turn-by-turn navigation app, and much more.
Overall, this device is going to be 6 inches x 3.1 inches x 0.4 inches (153 mm x 79 mm x 10 mm).
