Not quite an iPad, not quite an iPhone. But the the new Dell Streak is certain to appeal to, err, those who want a massive mobile phone.
The new Android-powered device comes exclusivley to the O2 network in the UK and boasts a 5-inch display but we can’t be sure if you can (or want to) make phone calls on it.
According to O2, the device features mobile internet, entertainment, turn-by-turn navigation and thousands of Android Market apps to customers looking for a big screen experience without having to carry a laptop around. It also has a 5 megapixel camera, fast processor, built in Wi-Fi and offers the customary access to Facebook and Twitter. It also has expandable memory up to 32GB via a micro SD card.
“The Dell Streak is a bold new class of product, something we wanted to bring to our customers first,” said Steve Alder, O2’s General Manager Devices. “This means we can continue to offer our customers a range of the very best devices to make their lives a bit easier.”
“The Dell Streak hits the sweet spot between traditional smartphones and larger-screen tablets,” said Ron Garriques, president, Dell Communication Solutions Group. “Its unique size provides people new ways to enjoy, connect, and navigate their lives.”
