    Pocket-Lint.com reports:
    Dell is to launch an Android-based tablet device, Pocket-lint has learnt, possibly beating the also rumoured Apple tablet to the market.

    The new model, which will go up against the currently available Archos Internet Tablet and recently announced JooJoo (formerly the CrunchPad), will allow users to surf the Web from a handheld device bigger than a touchscreen smartphone, but smaller than a standard netbook.

    Details so far are thin on the ground, but our multiple "black ops sources" tell us that it will feature a 5-inch screen, run the Android OS and be coming to the UK in the new year, with a more than likely announcement expected at CES 2010 in Las Vegas.

    Dell is of course staying quiet on this, but did give us more than the standard no comment when we asked it for more details:

    "Dell continually develops and tests new products that extend the mobile experience. We have not made any product announcements and do not comment on speculation, rumour, or unannounced products".

    Engadget just posted pics of the new Dell Tablets. The article doesn't mention what OS the new tablets will be running, but I sure hope its android. They look awesome:

    Don’t call it a smartphone. Formerly referred to as the Mini 5, the upcoming Dell Streak is “the ultimate portable tablet PC”.


    We were quite impressed with the specs of the Streak when Michael Dell showed it off in January, but don’t expect this phone in the United States till “later this summer”. The Streak will ship first in June across the UK at O2 stores, Carphone Warehouse, and Dell.co.uk.


    While it initially looked like a stellar device, the Streak has suffered the same fate as the Xperia X10. Both were revealed too early ahead of their U.S. launch dates and have been passed up by newer phones from HTC and Motorola. The current version of the Streak is still running Android 1.6 (like the X10), but Dell is expected to upgrade it to Android 2.2 and beyond later this year.


    No carrier was officially announced for the U.S., but Mr. Dell himself said it was coming to AT&T and this was confirmed by a listing on the FCC site.

    Here's what we know so far.

    The Dell Streak has a 5-inch screen, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and 2 GB of internal storage (with support for up to 32 GB of additional SD storage). It has an earpiece on the top of its front side and a microphone on the bottom.

    The Streak is shipping with Android 1.6 but will receive an over-the-air upgrade to Android 2.2 later this year.


    Anyone plan on picking one of these up?

    I like that device. I don't use my phone much and when I do, it is with a bluetooth. This would be perfect for me if they ever made a CDMA version. I refuse to go to AT&T for it.

    Introducing the perfectly sized, go-anywhere mobile entertainment, social connection and navigation tablet.

    At 5" the power and portability of the Dell Streak combines the best entertainment, social connectivity, and navigation on the go experience.

    iTouch 3.5", now DELL Streak 5" now 7" is best 8" if you need it. 10 or higher is too big unless you're at a board meeting?
