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 like that this market segment is heating up

However, let's not forget the biggest draw on the iPad...at least for me. The gorgeous IPS display panel. I hear comparision between iPad and Netbook far too frequent. But the high end display technology Apple chose to use on the iPad alone is a huge differentiating factor IMHO. For that reason alone, there's really no competitor...netbook or tablet.
But for those that don't need the IPS panel, having more flexible features like what's purportedly coming with the HP Slate and I assume in the Streak is certainly welcome. Hoping that I am wrong and the Streak/Slate devices utilizes IPS or better display technology. I love competition!

The IPS display isn't enough to deal with the lack of features. Like watching VHS tapes on a 100" laser TV.

On paper I was impressed with the IPS. Once I saw it up close...not so much.
It's not all that bright (fine for indoors but faceplants outdoors) and the viewing angle just didn't seem any more impressive than a high angle TFT TN.
I'd like to see someone go with OLED like the Zune has but they can eat battery depending on what's being displayed.
