Dell Streak unboxing and demo video

dell_mini_5_2 It looks like 2010 is going to be the year of the tablet with many manufacturers following in Apple’s footsteps and releasing their own tablet style devices.

There are several Android based tablets on offer at the moment and we’re hoping to look at many of them over the coming months. Today though we’re concentrating on the Dell Streak, Dell’s first attempt at an Android device. At the moment the Streak is exclusive to O2, you can’t even buy direct from Dell, yet.

The Streak is a decent looking MID (mobile internet device) although many comment that it looks like a large Blackberry Storm. The spec is also good, 1GHz CPU, 256MB RAM, 512MB ROM and 5″ screen with ‘Gorilla Glass’ which is all but indestructible. Perhaps the only disappointment with the device is that it’s currently shipping with Android 1.6 rather than 2.1 or even 2.2. However, we’re told that later it will ship with 2.1 and there will be a free upgrade for existing customers very soon.

In the video below you’ll see me unbox the Dell Streak and then take a look at some of the key features and applications. I’ll be back with a full review soon too.
