Submission + - Hands-on With Dell Streak

adeelarshad82 writes: Dell Streak, the android-based 5-inch tablet (which has also been called out as a smartphone rather than a tablet) is set to ship out starting July, both from a U.S. carrier and direct on for $500. Even though Dell has not disclosed the name of the carrier, some experts believe that it will be AT&T because the Streak is a 3G GSM 850/1900 device and AT&T is the only major U.S. carrier that supports those frequency bands. According to a hands-on, Streak is a sharp looking device with a black front and candy-apple red back which unfortunately shows fingerprints very easily. On the upside though Streak's curved body is comfortable to hold. Streak runs a customized version of Android 1.6, however the Android aficionados will have to get used to the unusual button layout. Its 800-by-480 screen makes images look tight, and web pages will benefit from the horizontal resolution. The 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, the same as in the HTC Incredible and Sprint EVO 4G, functions snappily. There's a 5-megapixel camera on the back, a VGA camera for video calling on the front, and a MicroSD memory card slot under the back cover.
