Dell’s new Tablet Device “Dell Streak” is all set to launch in US on 12 August with new price tag. A 5 inch tablet device, with a price tag of $299 with 2 years contract of At&T or unlocked edition at $549.99 will challenge Apple’s iPad, RIM’s BlackPad and Microsoft’s Tablet PC ( Yet to be launched) with its smaller offerings and low price.
An Android based device, Streak is with direct competition with iPad with something different to offer. Besides having all general features of any Tablet Device, it can also be use as mobile phone which gives an extra edge to this compare to iPad or any other Tablet PC available in the market. Since its bigger than any smartphone but smaller than iPad, the acceptance of Streak by market would be interesting to evaluate.
Dell itself points to the dual cameras and videoconferencing features of the Streak as two of its key selling points. The device could eventually replace other gadgets with both smaller and larger screens that an owner might already have in his or her arsenal.
Dell’s newest mobile device runs Google’s Android OS and includes front- and back-facing cameras, Wi-Fi and 3G capabilities, and a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor — the same one that powers the Nexus One phone. It was first announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January.
The Dell Streak’s $300 price seems fitting to us. It’s larger and more advanced than most smartphones, which often retail for $200 with a two-year contract. However, it’s smaller than an iPad, which start at $499.00 for the 16GB model and $629.00 for the 3G version.
