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 [...]
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. Anyway, video of this device with Android 2.1 after the jump.
O2 UK is now offering its second variant of the Dell Streak, a 32GB model. The 32GB model joins the 16GB model that is already available from the carrier. The Streak is a 5-inch tablet-like smartphone that currently runs Android 1.6 and offers 3G and WiFi connectivity, a 5mp camera, and up to 9 hours of talk time or 400 hours of standby time.
AT&T and Dell officially announced the Dell Aero earlier this year, but we now know that it will become available on the 9th August. This consumer orientated smartphone offers a 3.5-inch, 360 x 640 (nHD) pixel touchscreen with Gmail, Google Maps, Google Search, YouTube, Google Talk and the Android Market. AT&T describe this phone as the lightest Android phone available. The Aero is a 3G device and also offers Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. There is a 5MP camera along with a microSD memory card slot.
The Aero will cost you $300 without without a contract or $100 with an AT&T contract.

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 [...]
