Dell does Streak in Europe

Dell has launched its five-inch Android-based Tablet, the Streak, in Europe.

The device is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 1GHz chip and connects using the built-in Wi-Fi or 3G with added Bluetooth thrown in for most users to do absolutely nothing with.

Dell says the device is great for downloading and listening to music, updating your social notworking pages, sending and receiving and instant messages. It even makes and receives voice calls like a telephone.

Also in the small box are a five-mega-pixel auto-focus camera with dual LED flash and a Micro SDcard, expandable up to 32GB.

The Streak supports live updates, including platform upgrades, such as Adobe Flash 10.1 which will come to Android 2.2 - if not to the iPad- later this year. The device currently runs Android 1.6‎.

The device will be available from June at Carphone Warehouse on the O2 network, before landing on Dells Direct web site. Pricing details and tariffs have not yet been announced.
