Dell Streak To Be Available In India By October

The Dell Streak, Dell’s new smartphone-tablet hybrid is slated for an October launch in India, according to an NDTV report. NDTV reported today that Michael Tatelman, Dell’s Vice President for Global Consumer Channel Sales & Marketing, said that Indian consumers can expect the Dell Streak to launch around October, but he didn’t mention the exact launch date or the price of the Streak.

The Dell Streak is a nice little tablet, or an over sized smartphone, depending on how you intend to use it. It runs Android 2.1 and will soon get the Android 2.2 upgrade. It has been getting pretty good reviews so far and is expected to be a hit. It is the first serious competitor to both the iPhone 4 and the iPad. It has been available in the UK for about a month and has been available for pre-order in the US since a day or two.

Other specs of the Streak include a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 512 MB RAM, 5 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen display, 16 GB storage, 5 MP camera and GPS. It also has the usual connectivity options like GPRS, EDGE, 3G HSDPA, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g and Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP.

    Dell has already made a mistake by an early launch of a minor buggy Android 1.6 tablet in the western market, the early launch is to get a grip on Asian markets will be available early next year but beware Dell Asian market is not as patient as you think it is, lots of options are there from leading manufacturers like Samsung Galaxy, Htc, Motorola, Sony Ericsson. If we want it we want it now. It is a nice tablet cum phone but not worth waiting till next year, sorry Dell your stategy will fail if you come late in the market. Indian market is going to get a $35 tablet very very soon, don’t play the waiting game with us. Also IMO Dell trying to save the netbook category already available, which will be effected with launch of this kind of products. Dell’s bad marketing gimmick. Mr. Felice its better you don’t plan the expansion in Asia. Guys if you have the cash go for samsung or Htc not worth waiting for Dell trust me.
