Dell's iPad 2 Competitor To Launch In June

Dell is preparing a 10-inch Android tablet that will go head-to-head with the iPad 2 as well as scores of other Android tablets with similar screen size.

According to tech site Tweakers, the tablet - called the Streak Pro - will come with the Tegra 2 dual core SoC from Nvidia which is clocked at 1GHz and powers the likes of the Motorola XOOM, the Advent Vega, the Asus Eee Pad Transformer and the Acer Iconia A500.

It will weigh 720g with a thickness of 12.9mm; as with its competitors, it will have a 10.1-inch screen with a 1280x800 pixel resolution, run on Android Honeycomb and will come with a productivity dock and a folding cover that also doubles as a keyboard (not unlike the Eee Pad's keyboard).

Expect it to have 1GB RAM, up to 64GB onboard storage, a microSD card reader, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 4G connectivity, a five megapixel camera on the back and a two megapixel one on the front plus a brushed aluminium chassis.

This tablet will be Dell's third after last year's Dell 5-inch Streak and a 7-inch Streak 7. It will be interesting to see how much the Streak Pro will cost given that the Streak 7, which unlike the original Streak doesn't come with phone capabilities, already costs £450.
