by: Gary SimsFebruary 6, 2013

Dell drops smartphones, ditches Android

by: Kristofer WoukDecember 14, 2012
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.

Dell Streak Pro Exclusively Released In China

by: Aerol BibatJuly 29, 2011

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 Apple’s iPad 2.

So what do Chinese consumers get for their money? The Streak 10 Pro weighs [...]

Welldone Tablet PCphone: Redefining “Genuine Faux”

by: glennMay 6, 2011

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. That was quite a mouthful, even more so for something [...]

Big-Screen Phone Or Tablet? What Android Device To Buy?

by: glennApril 24, 2011

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 and up have been well-received by Android fans. Where once only a handful of large display [...]

Dell to release a 7-Inch Android Tablet?

by: James TromansSeptember 23, 2010

Image via Reuters

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 guess. Indeed, something above Android [...]

Dell Thunder 8MP Android smartphone with 4.1-inch display

by: James TromansAugust 12, 2010

Dell Thunder via Engadget

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 offered anything less than a 1Ghz Snapdragon CPU. [...]

Dell Streak available 13 August $550

by: James TromansAugust 10, 2010

Dell Streak

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 800 x 480 pixel display, a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon [...]
