Dell Streak 7 and Streak 10
Apple won't be the only one with a trendy tablet, soon
With the iPad being a
, many competitors are looking to rush tablet designs to the market. Microsoft has their much talked about
Courier journal-style design
Amazon and Google
are also reportedly cooking up tablet devices as well.
One set of tablets that have flown mostly under the radar are Dell's upcoming designs. Dell, currently the third largest computer manufacturer in the U.S., behind HP and Lenovo, is looking to get back on the ball with a trio of tablets.
from Dell reveal the Streak tablets to be very sleek and very iPad-like.
The tablets are reportedly called the Streak series. A 5-in. Streak 5 (formerly known as the Mini 5) will reportedly launch with
Dell's Aero smart phone
on the AT&T network in June. The Streak series, like the Aero, will be powered by Google's Android smart phone and MID operating system.
The 7-in. Streak 7 will arrive late this year and the 10-in. Streak 10 will arrive in "early 2011."
The striking visual similarities between the Streak series and the iPad are hard to miss (the Streak series does have 3 buttons on the front frame face, rather than just one). That surely gives Apple's legal team cause to salivate, but probably makes Apple's sales team a bit unnerved. After all, by the looks of it Apple isn't going to be the only one with a sleek tablet design for very long. Let's just hope Dell takes time to quality test the Streak series thoroughly so it can avoid the
heat and Wi-Fi issues
that have plagued the iPad.

This appears to have a wider aspect ratio, +1 over iPad for that. The lack of 720p playback is the biggest drawback of the iPad in my opinion. The first low voltage pad device that can play proper ratio 720p video for around $500 is probably something I am going to buy.

Or you could get any one of a number of netbooks/notebooks right now. Is the tablet format really that much better?

If you're standing on a subway train, heading to whatever location, yes. A tablet format is much better.
I ride a subway train from Pyeongtaek to Seoul quite often. That trip can be anywhere from 1-2 hours and majority of the time, I'm stuck standing up.
