Dell Streak is a device with great potential to compete with the Apple iPad, although it has taken it quite a while to reach from prototype phase to production. Luckily, we have folks like the one of Slashgear, who reviewed the tablet, for us all to see. Pictures and videos of the 5 inch slate can be checked out below:

Dell Streak is an Android tablet, that comes with voice capabilities and a pretty solid weight: 220g. The device is 9.98mm thick and its display is a WVGA touchscreen with a 800 x 480 pixel resolution. There will also be a HDMI dock available for Streak, allowing users to hook the unit up to a HDTV and if you’re wondering about the specs, they include a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, 512MB RAM, 512MB ROM.

There’s also a microSD card slot, 2GB of system/application storage space and support for quadband GSM/EDGE and dualband 900/2100 UMTS/HSPA. Plus, you get Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, GPS, WiFi b/g, an accelerometer, ambient light and proximity sensor and a digital compass. Camera-wise, there’s a 5MP sensor at the back of the slate, complete with dual LED flash and accompanied by a front VGA cam.

    5″ screen tablet does not make….

    It competes either with the EVO and the Droid 2 phones, just having a much thicker bezel and being more unwieldy to use as a phone, or with the slew of cheap Chinese tablets with sub-7″ screens.

    But, unfortunately, it does not compete with the iPad.

    We really need a well-designed 11″ Android tablet, preferably with Google Experience, to truly be competitive with the iPad.
