There's been a few other Android-based launches the last few days, but hopefully you haven't forgotten about Dell's 5-inch mobile Internet device (MID). It's still coming. And while it didn't show up last week, like we hoped it would, Dell wants you to know it's still happening. Soon. So soon, in fact, that they've managed to begin preparation for a pre-sale period. Sure, we've seen other pre-sales lead to nothing more than vaporware, but we're pretty sure Dell will come through with this one.
Not too long ago the Dell Streak was reviewed and overall we liked it. Well now in the UK you can buy one, straight from Dell. The Streak is SIM-free and costs around 449 pounds in the UK. In case you've forgotten the specs, the screen is 5 inches, an 800x400 resolution and multitouch support.
Here’s another feature in the hat of the Dell Streak. You can connect a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse to the massive 5 inch screen on the Streak. Currently, the mouse has no functionality but it still cool that it even recognizes it. A Bluetooth keyboard and a nice dock is a great combination. It almost acts as a mini desktop computer.
The best part about this is there’s no hacking required. Apparently you just pair up your keyboard and you’re on your way. There is no lag when typing on the keyboard. Everything is displayed almost instantaneously. If you have a Streak, try it out. If you’re still waiting for it to arrive you now have an extra function to look forward too.
Although this handset just hit AT&T stores, it’s already up for sale. New customers can now head to Dell’s online store and purchase the Aria for free. This offer also includes free shipping and free activation.
Yes, it’s that time of day. Only time will tell if this does make it onto the market. This is a 5-inch Android tablet by Acorp. The representative did say it would be available next month. It does look pretty good though and it should be affordable.
There hasn’t been much coverage on this device since it’s not available here in the US. It may never make it over here but in Europe (mainly France) this is a very popular handset. It has been rooted by none other than Paul aka Modaco.
The answer is yes, it has been rooted. Paul, better known as Modaco, has done it again. Shortly after being released in the UK, he has managed to root the Streak in seemingly record time. This tablet was just released yesterday and it was rooted the same day. At least this time the product actually made into the market. He rooted a few handsets before they was even released to the public.
Once the Dell Streak hits the streets this HDMI dock will surely be the hottest accessory everyone will pick up for their new toy. This dock will be able to perform all of the things we expect out of a traditional dock and a few extras. It should be available for purchase on the same day the streak is released.
Being excited about a piece of tech, or the next best thing in the gadget industry is pretty much normal for anyone. And one of the best ways to calm your beating heart is to watch an unboxing. And, let's face facts here, the best unboxing videos come from our friends over at SlashGear. Today's is no different, as we get a first-hand look at the upcoming Dell Streak, the 5-inch tablet running our beloved Android Operating System (OS).
Another day, another tablet, this time around we are treated to the S7 by Huawei. This is another tablet Engadget got a preview of at the years Computex. The S7 was shown boasting a 1GHz MSM8250 Snapdragon processor and Android 2.1.
