The Dell Streak features a 5-inch capacitive multitouch WVGA display and runs Googles Android OS. Widgets and applications can populate the home screen for quick access.
Dell Streak Left Side
A view of the left side of the Dell Streak. Like the Apple iPad, the Streak measures 0.5 inch thick. The Streaks screen measures 5 inches across (Dell has yet to release exact specs), versus the 9.56 by 7.47 inches of the iPad, Dell is reportedly working on 7- and 10-inch versions of the Streak.
Dell Streak Right Side
And now the view from the right. Also unlike the iPad, the Streak comes with a 5-megapixel camera, which can easily upload images to sites such as Facebook. WiFi, Bluetooth and 3G connectivity are also built in.
Dell Streak Navigation
Google Maps is integrated in the Streak and offers users turn-by-turn navigation, with both street and satellite views. Its speedy processor is Qualcomms 1GHz Snapdragon.
Reaching for the Power Button
The Streak features a cleanly designed fa???ade, though analysts wonder whether consumers will go for its bigger-than-smartphone, smaller-than-a-tablet size. Pricing details have not yet been released.
Cloud computing has been called a threat to the environment, but the Dell tablet boasts a green streak, arriving in packaging made from 100 percent sustainable and compostable bamboo.
