Dell Streak and Motorola Flipout coming to Australia in early October
Two new Android devices will be launched in Australia really soon: the Dell Streak and the Motorola FlipOut.
The Dell Streak will be Australia’s first Android tablet (the Samsung Galaxy Tab will also be launched there, but it’s not clear when exactly). It should be available via Optus starting October 1, bringing features like a 5 inch WVGA display, HSPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3.5mm headset jack, 5MP autofocus camera, 16GB of internal memory, and 1GHz processor. It will have Android 1.6 at launch, but upgrades to 2.1 and 2.2 Froyo should be available later on.
Optus will offer the Streak for free on contract (with a $59 monthly plan), of for $649 outright.
Motorola FlipOut, the second Android device that’s hitting Australia soon, will be offered by Vodafone starting “early October” for $299 free of contract.
The FlipOut runs Android 2.1 and features a 2.8 inch QVGA display, full QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G, 3.5mm headset jack, and a 3.2MP camera.
