Dell’s Android based tablet ‘Streak’ is one of the most popular devices around and is rated as the top most contender of the iPad. The Dell Streak is a hybrid device that lives in the space between a smartphone and other larger tablets or netbooks in the market and this is where it scores over the Apple tablet. The 10 mm thin device has a 5 inch diagonal screen which provides higher pixel quality and features Adobe Flash 10.1 and Android 2.2.

Dell Streak’s major Hardware features include:

  • A sharp 5-inch capacitive multi-touch WVGA (800×480) display for a great full-screen experience watching video or browsing the web.

  • VGA front-facing camera enables video chat functionality down the road.

  • UMTS / GPRS / EDGE class 12 GSM radio with link speeds of HSDPA 7.2 Mbps / HSUPA
  • A user-accessible Micro SD slot expandable up to 32GB. That means you can store lots of movies, music, photos or other kinds of files.
  • A mono speaker that produces loud sound with less distortion than most other phones.
  • A sliding battery door.
