Dell Streak  (Source: SlashGear)
Streak is a 5-inch MID from Dell running Android 2.0

Dell is doing all it can to add new businesses to its offerings in the form of services for migrating to Windows 7 and new consumer electronic products. This is in the face of slipping from the second place spot in the global computer shippers list with Acer taking its spot.

Dell CEO Michael Dell has been talking quite a bit about the Dell smartphone that is coming early next year and rumored to be hitting AT&T. A smartphone isn't the only Android device that the computer maker has up its sleeves. Today a new MID based on Android from Dell has leaked online. The device is called the Dell Streak, has a 5-inch WVGA 800 x 480 resolution touchscreen, and runs Android 2.0.

Other features of the Streak include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 3D WWAN connectivity. The device is a prototype and sports a 5-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash. A microSD card slot is available for memory expansion and the battery is a 1,300mAh unit. The front of the device has a minimalist design with only three buttons.

A front facing video camera is available for video conferencing. A docking connector is offered along the bottom edge and the label on the prototype reads US, which seemingly means versions for other countries will be offered as well. Other important details like pricing and availability are unknown at this time.

3D WWN? Should be 3G WWAN.

Typo I think.

Any device connected to the internet that can run a VOIP software (Skype, or SIP based softphone, or even messengers) with microphone and speaker can be used as a phone, if you assign a phone number to the software.

You mean software such as Google Voice (that yes, assigns you a phone number, and is already an app for the Android OS)? There's a good possibility that Google Voice could be upgraded to work over WiFi.

We'll just have to wait and see...

Yes. If Google Voice is available on Android OS.

Google Voice or any SIP based (standard)softphone, or Skype (proprietary) can work over internet, be it wired, WiFi or WWAN.
