AT&T (NYSE: T) will launch Dell’s Android-powered Streak tablet on Aug. 12 that comes with a new application store from Dell that not only sells apps for the Streak but for other mobile phones as well.
The Streak tablet features a 5-inch screen, a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 5-megapixel camera, support for both 3G and WiFi, and 2 GB of internal memory. The tablet, however, will run on version 1.6 of the Android OS, but Dell said the platform will be upgraded to Android 2.2 later this year. In addition, the device will enable voice calling. The tablet will go on sale for $300 with a two-year contract and for $550 without an AT&T contract.
The Streak is just one of a slew of tablets and smartphones Dell is expected to introduce into the U.S. market. AT&T is expected to launch the Dell Aero, an Android-powered phone, but has not revealed any information on availability of that device; the Aero was first announced in March.
Late last year, Dell introduced the Dell Mini 3 that that launched with China Mobile and Brazilian carrier Claro.
