Dell’s latest Android tablet designs, now named “Streak”, are much different – much more iPad like – than the Mini 5 we saw a few months back at CES.
That's not necessarily a bad thing at all.
The Mini 5 used to look (and may still look) like an oversized Android handset. But now, the newly leaked Dell Streak 7 and 10 appear to be nearly indistinguishable from the iPad's bezelled-but-grippable LCD in a frame design - at least from a head-on view. It will be interesting to see if and when the Streak 5 will see the same redesign.
According to documents acquired by Engadget, the Streak 5 will be available this winter, the Streak 7 will be available later this year and the Streak 10 is looking at 2011. I was impressed by Dell's work with the Mini 5. Let's hope this redesign only makes the line better. The world needs a fantastic Android tablet. [Engadget]
