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.

I wish these companies would focus more on bringing the cost of full fledged Tablet PC's down. I've always wanted one but am unwilling to pay the ridiculous price these OEM's are charging for one. I could care less about some underpowered feature-lacking Android/iPhone OS tablet. I'd rather have a Tablet PC.

An HP TM2 tablet goes for $1000. Don't expect to get far below that, unless they start stripping features.

There's no need to go below that, but there is a need to improve what you get at that price. I have one, and while it is great in many aspects, there are downsides to it as well.
The extreme variation of brightness and color distortions depending on viewing angle makes a very bad impression. Higher resolution would be welcome to make it fit stuff in portrait mode too. And some physical buttons on the display bezel for use in portrait mode won't drive the price up but can improve usability tremendously.
