Dell has announced that its Android-powered Streak tablet, also known as the Dell Mini 5, will be available in the UK from O2 and the Carphone Warehouse in early June, and Dell.co.uk later in the month. Pricing information is not yet available and will be announced by O2 before the launch.
Dell has also said that the 10mm thick tablet (or smartbook) will be made available to U.S. customers at some point during the summer.
The Dell Streak features a 5-inch capacitive touchscreen display with 800 x 480 pixel resolution and is powered by a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. A 5 megapixel autofocus camera with a dual LED flash is included, as is support for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and a microSD memory card slot with support for 32GB cards can be used to add storage.
While the Dell Streak supports voice calling on GSM and UMTS networks, it is intended primarily as a data device and supports GPRS, EDGE, and 3.5G HSPA data speeds. It will have access to the full range of Android applications available on the Android Market, and will launch with built-in Touchdown Exchange support.
