Michael Dell, CEO, took to the stage yesterday for a keynote speech at the Citrix Synergy conference where he promptly teased the crowd with a demo of the Streak 5 tablet phone. The 5-inch device features a 5-megapixel camera, a 800X480 touch display with 5 inches viewable screen, and a customized build of Android. We aren’t sure what version of Android the Streak 5 will have. Our first glimpse of the device had 1.6 on it but enough time has passed to get 2.1 loaded.
Actually, I’ve got a new little device here. I’ve got my Citrix Receiver on here; we can log in and capture our desktop. I’ve got six different desktop planes here, I’ve got my Android applications, I can see what’s going on at Twitter and Facebook. This will be available starting next month, first with our partner 02 Telefonica in Europe, then later this summer with our pretty good partner here in the United States, AT&T.
The Streak 5 will be one of two Android products from Dell, the other being the Aero. AT&T could definitely use some help in the Android department so hopefully these Dell devices give them a boost.
