Yesterday Dell officially announced that their 5-inch Android-powered tablet called the Streak will first launch in the UK with O2 on June 4th, followed by the rest of Europe soon after, according to Engadget. The device will launch in the US later in the summer, and AndroidandMe writes that the device will likely be with AT&T.
Engadget commented on the manner in which Dell is generating buzz over the device, saying that "Dell's opting to market the Streak as "the ultimate portable tablet pc" and would prefer that this device, albeit fully equipped to carry out cellular calls like a phone, not be called a smartphone."
Rumored specs of the device from AndroidCentral include:
- 1GHz Processor
- 5-inch WVGA touchscreen
- 5 MP camera with LED flash
- 16GB internal memory with MicroSD support
- Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 2.1
- 7.2 Mbps HSDPA
- Android 1.6 at launch, with an OTA update to Android 2.2 supposedly coming this year
