Dell, Starhub unveil Android-based Streak tablet : Tablet lovers in Singapore will soon have a new option - the Dell Streak, Dell's first all-in-one ultra-portable five-inch Android-based tablet. Equipped with WiFi, Bluetooth and 3G connectivity, the 220g Streak allows for easy web browsing, digital entertainment and social networking. It is integrated with A-GPS and e-compass for digital navigation and location-based applications. Dell's new user interface, Stage, provides users instant access to their favourite content.
The tablet sports a damage-resistant Gorilla Glass touchscreen and comes with a rear-facing 5-megapixel auto-focus camera with dual LED flash as well as a front-facing VGA webcam. It is powered by a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and features 2GB built-in memory that is expandable up to 32GB via a MicroSD slot.
Dell will offer the Streak through StarHub for the next few months but will be working with other telcos to reach every customer. A basic $38 monthly data plan from StarHub will give Streak users data usage of up to 12GB while the high-end $205 plan offers unlimited data usage.
Dell will also pre-load the Dell tablet with customised StarHub applications such as StarHub TV, StarHub Music Store, StarHub Games Store and Gee! Portal.
The Dell Streak will be available on Dec 11 at StarHub outlets. You can pre-order yours via the StarHub website or through the StarHub outlets this weekend. The Streak retails at $938. Details on the mobile data price plans are available on the StarHub website.
