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.”
The Dell Streak will be available in early June through O2 stores and online at www.o2.co.uk and www.carphonewarehouse.com.
