Apple won't be the only one with a trendy tablet, soon

With the iPad being a hot topic, many competitors are looking to rush tablet designs to the market.  Microsoft has their much talked about Courier journal-style designAmazon 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.

Recently leaked photos 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.
