New details have emerged on Dell’s upcoming Mobile Internet Device, the Streak. This will be a small portable computer with a variety of wireless access options and a focus on accessing the Web and e-mail.
The Streak will use a tablet shape, and won’t include a hardware keyboard. It has been designed to be used primarily in landscape mode, but with portrait support.
It will sport Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and the ability to connect to 3G networks. In addition, it will function as a GSM phone.
Android 2.0 will be its operating system, and it will come with the standard suite of applications, many of which tie in to Google’s online services, like Gmail.
In addition, the Streak will have a 5-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash and a 1,300 mAh battery.
Pricing & Availability
At this point, it’s probably too early to say when the Dell Streak will be released, or what it will cost. Still, an unconfirmed report that came out this summer said this model could debut this fall, possibly through a wireless carrier.
There have been rumors that this company is prepping devices for AT&T, but Dell could also be planning on selling this model directly to the public unlocked.
