The stars look to be aligning for a possible Dell Streak offering on AT&T this month. Engadget is reporting that the Android powered device is set to launch on July 19 per some of its tipsters. The Dell Streak smartphone/tablet, available on carriers in the UK, runs the Android 1.6 OS and features a large 5-inch touch display, WiFi, 3G data, and built-in GPS. We assume similar specs will be offered if the rumor is true.
Dell has started offering its Streak Android tablet unlocked over the pond in the UK. This oversized Android smartphone is being offered for 449 GBP ($676) and comes SIM-free and unlocked. The 3G capable Dell Streak offers a 5-inch display running Android with an ARM based 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 5 megapixel camera, and microSD memory card support.
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 [...]

The Dell Mini 5 seems to be picking up pace at the moment, and the latest development with this piece of kit includes a host of services from Amazon preinstalled to the hardware. The most interesting of which is a Kindle application. We’re reading inbetween the lines somewhat here as all the picture displays is a bullet point staying “Kindle Book Reader Applications”. Nonetheless, to our ears this can mean only one thing. Of course we are expecting the device to already come with Amazon’s MP3 store preinstalled as this is already the case on a number of other Android powered phones.
To put things [...]
The Dell Mini 5 is oddly named as it is a rather large smart phone. We’ve been hot on the heals on this device since it started gaining traction a few months ago. Now, we have a more in depth, high quality video which reveals some of the interesting physical characteristics of this device. As we already pointed out, the device is on the larger side. Indeed, the video points it out too. But any device with a 5-inch touchscreen is going to be big compared to devices whose screens we expect to be 3.7-inches at the most.
Much has been made of the fact that it might look big against your face while you are talking on the [...]
While there certainly isn’t anything “mini” about it, the Dell Mini 5 is piquing interest everywhere with it’s in-between size of a phone and tablet PC. During MWC today a few more interesting details have surfaced regarding some of the features of the phone that have been previously shrouded in mystery.
The Mini 5 is set to launch on AT&T’s network with rumored future availability for T-Mobile. It is said to be running something “newer than Android 1.6″ and some reports are saying Android 2.1. It now officially totes a forward facing camera which will enable the device to perform video conferencing as well as shooting regular [...]
The much anticipated Dell Mini 5 recently landed in Engadget’s hands and they wasted no time in snapping photos and shooting a nice video of the boot up sequence for the half tablet half phone hybrid. Noted in our previous coverage, the interesting aspect of this device is that it is in between a phone and a tablet in size and is trying to satisfy both forms which has not yet been done successfully. It is a bit disappointing that nobody has taken a photo of it while held up to the face or ear because it may be a tad too large to use as a primary phone and its the primary question on everyone’s mind.
By reviewing the photos closely a couple of observations show a [...]
Thanks to some detective work by Engadget on the FCC website, it would appear as though the Dell Mini 5 is heading to AT&T and will support EDGE and 3G frequencies. How do we know this? During a hands on photo session with the Mini 5, a number of photos were taken which revealed the battery compartment, SIM card slot etc. One of these photos, shown to the right, revealed a label which you can find here on the FCC website. After matching the details up, AT&T users can get a little excited “as and it’s described in the RF test reports as a “mobile internet device” with support for WiFi plus full HSPA on WCDMA bands II and V (that’s the coverage [...]
Michael Dell was caught in Switzerland briefly showing off his new toy in red. The quasi-tablet/phone has an astounding 5″ screen and looks to fit comfortably in his hand, yet when sitting next to an iPhone, it looks gigantic. We posted a hands on video a few weeks ago of the device as well as a teardown reveal of the official specifications. In this video, we get a great look at Dell’s custom Android interface, icon style, and fluidity of the Snapdragon processor.
After the announcement of Apple’s iPad and its resounding negative press, it is great to see Dell lining itself up by partnering with Google to take a swing at the tablet market. I’m [...]
