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.
It is expected to be priced in the range of Rs 25000 – 30000 in India at the time of launch.
