* 3G, Wi-Fi & Bluetooth
* 5MP autofocus camera with dual LED flash.
* Expandable memory via Micro SD cards, up to 32GB capacity

My thoughts exactly, its just a bigger version of a Nexus One / Desire with a bigger screen, I don't think a market for this exists. Too big for a phone for most people, and certainly too small to be a useable slate.

I am still unsure as to whether the slate market itself exists, let alone the inbetween slate and phone! I do however have a hankering for an iPad, if only to use it, abuse it, and decide for myself if it belongs in this world :rolleyes:

As expected, the Dell Streak will have a 5-inch WVGA touchscreen, Qualcomm's 1-GHz Snapdragon Processor, 2 GB internal storage, maximum 32GB of external SD storage, 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, and a front-facing camera for video chat. The Streak will also have 3G, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity.

At launch, the Streak will be running Android 1.6 (Donut), but the device will receive an over-the-air upgrade to the new Flash-capable Android 2.2 (Froyo) later this year, a Dell spokesperson confirmed. The mini tablet will also come pre-loaded with Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube apps, and Google Maps featuring free turn-by-turn navigation.

There's a video with a brief demonstration here:

I think in combination with a bluetooth headset this could be awesome. It is basically a large PDA, so it has the media and business capabilities of a laptop or netbook, plus the connectivity, telephony and messaging functionality of a phone. The big screen makes for convenient reading of documents, ebooks, internet, video, gaming, texting and so on, but (unlike iPad or netbook) is not too big to fit into a purse or handbag. For me, that's a winning combination.

Too bad that it will be exclusive to O2. Dell is being just as short-sighted as Apple was with the iPhone and goes for the network with the biggest wallet, not the one with the best coverage or data capability.

Yeah not only would it not fit in your pocket but imagine putting this next to your ear to make / recive a phone call. :(

Yes you "could" use a bluetooth headset but then its not really a phone is it.

£429 is the UK price. Exactly the same as the Wifi iPad but with the capabilities of the 3G. Smaller screen.

I'm waiting to see if this price £429 is a sim free price or it's still locked to O2.

I have seen a couple of sites say it's sim-free but other's not mention it at all.

If it's so I think i'll buy one and see what it's like, I don't mind the slightly bigger form factor for what it gives you back.

I think that is an unlocked price... but I think its overpriced for what it is... a bit useless as either a phone or a tablet :(

I would have thought it should have been priced closer to the archos internet tablet 5, then maybe it would have been a considerable piece of kit!! I shall await the looking glass...

Yeah O2 exclusive in the UK. Apparently it will be in the States in July for $500 unlocked. My guess is AT&T bands because the Dell CEO said this phone will be coming to AT&T.

Honestly tho, this phone is perfect for either a woman, a man who carries a purse (lol) or a man who wears cargo pants. One major knock on the iPad is that it is not more portable than a netbook, same cannot be said about this.

Yeah that exclusive is for a network. Is the £429 a unlocked sim-free version that I could wack my Orange sim in?????
