Dell goes “streaking” with new tablet
by AccountingWEB on
Dell, the computer manufacturer, is hoping to take a bite out of Apple with the introduction of its own touch-screen tablet.
The Android-powered, 5-inch Streak is aiming for the gap between Apple’s 9-inch iPad and the 4.5-inch iPhone, and promising to deliver the “benefits of a laptop in a pocket friendly size.”
The device comes with built-in Wi-Fi, 3G, and Bluetooth connectivity and has a removable battery – that is not available on the iPhone. Unlike the iPad, the Streak includes a 5-megapixel camera.
For the technically minded, the new device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset combining communications features with a 1GHz processor. It has 2GB of internal memory and can be expanded using Micro SD cards of up to 32GB.
As an Android device, the Streak will have access to third party applications – but not as wide a selection as Apple can offer. While very obviously a consumer product, Dell maintains that the 5-inch screen is large enough for mobile professionals to review Web pages in their native format. Someone using it for turn-by-turn navigation also would be able to handle the device safely.
“The Dell Streak hits the sweet spot between traditional smart phones and larger-screen tablets. Its unique size provides people new ways to enjoy, connect, and navigate their lives,” said Ron Garriques, president, Dell Communication Solutions Group,
