Dell Streak

What if you take your precious smart phone, combine it with a tablet for the media capabilities and add an Android operating system to let yo  u access the most apps out in the market? If you think it is impossible to have such a device, think again. Dell has come up with a new way to satisfy tablet hungry mobile phone users in one compact package.

The Dell Streak (also called the Dell Mini 5) has been the focus of many Android fans all over the globe. This powerful device is able to deliver a well-rounded mobile phone package combined with a top notch portable media center without compromising anything.

You may feel a bit silly pressing your ear against a bigger device, but that is what Bluetooth is for anyway. At least you have the luxury of a bigger screen to play games on or watch your favorite videos on the go. It may not fit into your tight jean pocket but this 5 inch wonder is still easily stashed in a larger jacket pocket or a handbag.

It’s All Thanks to the ‘Droid

Dell Streak

Thanks to its super quick 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon (QSD8250) processor, the Dell Streak is able to run version 1.6 of the Google Android operating system. If you ever want to upgrade though, you may opt to use version 2.2 (Froyo).

Because it is an Android device, the tablet phone is able to offer multitasking. You no longer have to close your browser whenever you want to change your music. You also have the benefit of a customizable UI. If you feel like dressing it up, each home screen can have a different wallpaper. For accessibility, you are given the choice on which widgets to place on the Streak’s quick launch list.

The Google platform has its first party perks of course. It comes with a full range of systems like, of course, Google Search accessibility, Google Maps, Gmail and Google Talk integration. Unlike Apple devices, the Streak actually supports Adobe Flash 10.1 which is good for those who are looking forward to playing Flash games online or watching Flash videos.

The Dell Streak is a connectivity powerhouse. Being able to give excellent performance on the media front, it is easy to forget that it is also a very effective communicator. For connectivity options, you have 2G GSM which is compatible with the 850, 900, 1800 and 1900 network frequencies. You also have 3G HSDPA compatibility for the 900 and 2100 network frequencies.

Media Prowess

Social networking is a breeze with the Dell Streak, thanks to its integrated sharing and built in shortcuts. For those looking for an all around media player, audio files in the WMA, MP3, WAV and eAAC+ formats as well as video files in the WMV, MP4, H.263 and H.264 may be played by the tablet phone.

To be able to enjoy the web capabilities of the device while still being able to talk to your friends, the Bluetooth version 2.1 with A2DP compatibility on the Streak comes in quite handy.
