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 faux.

For visualization purposes, the Dell Streak 7 imitation weighs 13 ounces (that is approximately 4 ounces lighter than the weight of the real thing), and it is found to have 8.07″ x 4.25″ x 0.56″ dimensions (not considerably different to the dimensions of the Dell Streak 7 tablet) . It also has a 7- inch resistive touch screen with WVGA resolution. It supports Flash 10.1 and Instant Messaging (Skype and MSN),  as well as various essential office software programs such as Excel, Word, Adobe Reader, and PowerPoint.

That is pretty good for a cheap imitation (if you are just willing to take the chance in spite of the probability of running errors and a short useful life). But I guess we can never really judge the tablet PCphone’s true value until we bet our full 180 bucks on it.
