We’d forgive you for not even being aware that Dell had released Android phones, as the only news from the company involving Android lately has been tablet related. Even then, there hasn’t been much to speak of. Apparently, Dell realizes this too, as they confirmed at this year’s Dell World conference that they’re dropping smartphones and Android altogether.

Well, we’ve been expecting this for a while – but Dell has finally done it. The company has just fired its opening salvo in the Chinese market and has exclusively released its newest 10-inch Android tablet in China. This is aimed at the emerging Chinese market that the company is hoping to tap. The new tablet is named the Streak 10 Pro is pretty obviously aimed at the Chinese market, with its Chinese interface and a slew of popular apps pre-loaded. It’s also priced for the Chinese consumer. Tagged at 2999 yuan, it over half a thousand yuan cheaper than…

It is genuine faux and yet some of its features far outmatch those of the actual Dell Streak 7 tablet. Dubbed as the Welldone tablet PCphone, the $180 1.2 GHz- running China-made counterfeit brings the Dell Streak 7 tablet to shame with its 512 MB memory, Android 2.3 Gingerbread update, phone features (yes, you can actually make phone calls using this unlike Dell’s Streak 7 tablet). It carries a 3000mAh battery complete with a Portable Digital Media Interface connector (that means 6 hours of movie playback, 20 hours for music and 10 hours of HDMU output playback), an HDMI output port and even a USB port….

Tablets are a relatively new entry to the Android ecosystem but even so, they’ve quickly become a popular gadget to have. Being always-on and always connected has made it the go-to gadget for checking email, catching up on social sites and browsing the web. On top of all that, some versions can even make and receive calls, turning them into an ideal all-in-one device. Some of the models to currently out (as of this writing) are the HTC Flyer, the newer Samsung Galaxy Tab models and the Motorola Xoom. Meanwhile, device makers noticed that bigger screened phones measuring 4.0 inches…

Dell are rumored to release a 7-inch Android based tablet sometime in 2011, but in truth an exact date is about as firm as quicksand.The 5-inch screen of Dell’s Streak fills a niche screen-size but also offers an identity crisis; “am I a tablet?” However, this newer offering clearly fits in with the tablet crowd and Michael Dell revealed the device on stage for but a fraction of a moment before saying that, “of course, it’s nice to have a larger screen,” and then left it at that. This device is alleged to run Android, but the version is anyone’s…

It seems that the new Dell Aero smartphone is available for purchase with or without an AT&T contract.  But before you get too excited, this little bugger runs atop of Android 1.5. That’s right, Cupcake. Still interested? Well then, the Aero measures 11.6 x 121.92 x 57.9mm in size, features a 5 megapixel camera, a 3.5-inch 460×360 pixel display (roughly HVGA’ish), and a 624MHz processor.  There’s also support for microSD memory cards, with a 2GB card included.  Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS are also built-in. It costs $99.99 with a contract, and only $299.99 without.  Full specs, and a couple more…

Engadget have very recently posted a video of the Dell Thunder, last seen back in April. The video reveals most of the important pieces of information but we thought we would summarise them in an easy to digest list. 4.1-inch OLED display with at least a 800 x 480 resolution 8 MP camera with 720p video capability and LED Flash A removable 1,400mAh battery Currently Android 2.1 (Perhaps with Dell’s own UI later) Right now we don’t know anything else about the processor, RAM or storage. Given the high-end nature of this device we would be shocked if this thing…

Despite its availability within the UK, Dell have only just announced the US release date of the Streak. The Dell Streak is a 5-inch Android smartphone/tablet. Dell are releasing the Streak with AT&T as the chosen carrier. It will cost $549.99 without a contract or $299.99 if you sign up for a 2 year 3G service plan with AT&T. What seems most surprising about the prices is the fact that the $550 isn’t actually that bad, while the $299.99 subsidized version seems rather costly . For your money you will receive Android 1.6 (with 2.2 coming soon), the aforementioned 5-inch…

The Dell Streak has been available in the UK for a while now, plodding away running Android 1.6. It isn’t even available in the US yet, but the device is set to receive an update to Android 2.1 in the near future. Engadget have managed to get a sneak peak of the device running the goodies, but it’s not all rosey. The device is still optimised for landscale mode and the home screen only offers support for 24 icons instead of 32. Indeed, Android 2.2 is out now, so perhaps Dell will release this pupy directly with Android 2.2 stateside….
