Dell has officially unveiled the new Dell Streak Pro in China, at a press conference in Beijing. It will be the first smartphone powered by the new Baidu Yi platform. It will be available on China Unicom and packs in some really impressive hardware.
It comes with a dual core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm processor and a 4.3 inch SuperAMOLED display with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels. It comes with Baidu’s new Yi smartphone platform, which is customized for Chinese customers. It comes integrated with a lot of popular Baidu services, and is also compatible with Android apps. It will presumably come with an 8 MP camera.
Dell has been focusing on China a lot lately. It recently launched the Streak 10 tablet there, and now a new smartphone exclusively for China.
“Dell will choose to release more and more products for China, as its first place to launch in the world, because China is becoming an important market,” said Michael Yang, Dell’s President of Greater China.
Dell had first launched a variant of the Dell Streak Pro in Japan in September, but it was powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It may launch the smartphone globally soon, but hasn’t revealed anything on that front yet.
