Dell Streak device, it’s massive

Hotness. That’s how I would describe the latest competitor in the smartphone race.

As if resident of the UK didn’t already have a line-up of handsets to chose from that would make even the most reserved American green with envy, today Dell announced that it and O2 will be releasing the Dell Streak in early June. A giant amongst smartphones, the Streak features:

  • 5″ WVGA capacitive touchscreen display
  • 5 megapixel camera with LED flash
  • 16GB of internal memory
  • support for microSD cards up to 32GB
  • Wi-Fi
  • GPS
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • 7.2Mbps HSDPA
  • 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor

To debut with Android 1.6, Dell says the Streak has been “designed with the future in mind” and will be subject to OTA updates which will bring Adobe Flash 10.1, Android 2.2 “Froyo”, and video chat apps to the Streak before the year’s end. Pricing has yet to be announced, but the Dell Streak will be available online and in stores from O2, at Carphone Warehouse, and later “later in the month at Dell.co.uk.” Oh, anyone whose thinking of making an easy buck brining these bad boys over to the US better move fast — it’s coming here “later this summer.”
