Dell on Tuesday announced launch plans for its Android-based Dell Streak handheld tablet , while also confirming that the device will get an upgrade to the Flash-capable Android 2.2 later this year. The Streak will launch in the U.K. in early June and the U.S. later this summer, but the company did not provide specific launch dates for either country’s launch. No pricing or U.S. carrier details were announced.
As previously stated by Dell, it’s a 5-inch touch screen tablet that will run the Android operating system. On Tuesday, Dell said that the tablet will later be upgraded to Android version 2.2, just announced at Google I/O. The device comes with an ARM-based Snapdragon chipset and 1GHz processor, 2GB of storage (expandable to 32GB with a MicroSD card), a 5-megapixel camera, a front-facing camera, removable battery, and Wi-Fi, 3G, and Bluetooth connectivity.
For now, the only 3G service provider signed up is O2, a British carrier. That means the Streak will go on sale in the U.K. first, in early June, and not in the U.S. until later this summer. A U.S. carrier has not yet been announced.
