US computer giant Dell has announced plans to launch a new
touchscreen tablet, the seven-inch Streak 7, and the Venue smartphone using Google's Android software.
Dell launched a smartphone late last year with Microsoft, using the
US software giant's Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system, but it
opted for Google's free Android platform for the latest device.
Dell's new 7-inch Android tablet, the Streak 7 is a 4G capable tablet
designed for T-Mobile?s 4G network.
The Streak 7 has a seven-inch WVGA touch screen with Gorilla Glass.
It features Google's Android 2.2 operating system, a dual core 1GHz
NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor and full support for Adobe Flash Player. It
will come comes preloaded with a variety of content and applications
from T-Mobile and will also have access to applications, games and
widgets from Android Market.
The Streak 7 is also equipped with a rear-facing 5 megapixel camera
for high-definition stills and video recording. The front-facing 1.3
megapixel camera with the preloaded Qik Video Chat application
provide video-calling over T-Mobile's network as well as Wi-Fi.
The new Streak 7 will feature Dell's Stage user interface. Later this
year, Dell will add syncing to Stage so people can keep their photos,
contacts, calendars and other personal content synchronized across
their Dell Stage-equipped devices, from tablets to PCs, connected
through their home network.
The new Dell Streak 7 Tablet is expected to be available in the U.S.
in the coming weeks at a "very competitive" price.
