CES 2010: Dell Fires First Shot in Tablet PC Wars with Streak Concept

by bradiger   January 07, 2010 at 1:54PM  |  Views: 177

Many have speculated that 2010 will be the year of the keyboardless, touchscreen, portable tablet PC. While for many months a lot chatter has been circulating around the web about Apple's likely forthcoming "iSlate," at CES today, Dell beat them to the punch with some sexy hardware of their own.

Sporting a gorgeous five-inch screen and running Google's Android OS, the "Streak" is very much still in concept form, so details are still a little sparse, but there are a few tech spec tidbits to chew on thus far.

What we can say with certainty is that there's a 5 megapixel camera on the back, and a phone dialer in the software, and a Sim card slot, which is a pretty good indication of what this device is striving to be.

However, with a size that's somewhere between a giant iPhone and a miniature tablet PC, it's hard to say if Dell's entry will bridge the gap between the two classes, or just come up short trying to fulfill the tasks of both. We'll be watching this one closely.
