The 5-inch Android Tablet from Dell, the “Streak” has now been available for pre-order and to be released into the public very soon.
The Dell Streak features a TFT 5-inch screen with a 1Ghz Snapdragon processor (same as the one used on Nexus One and HTC Evo 4G), 5 megapixel camera, and an option for the user to purchase cellular contract with AT&T.
For T-Mobile users, you can still use it but 3G is currently not enabled, meaning your web browsing will suffer from slow Edge speeds.
This 5-inch tablet from Dell is the first “hybrid” Android tablet, capable of also acting as a phone.
If you travel internationally a lot and you have a need for an unlocked Android device, this could be the best out there currently for that purpose.
Here’s a demo video of the Dell Streak:
What do I think? I think this is definitely a good device to get. But I think it’s more of a smartphone than a tablet device. Hey, it’s a whopping 5-inches, you should be able to get a lot of things done while also using it as a phone.
