Interestingly, the new Streak will be launched in China first, sometime “later this summer”, with other markets being evaluated in the second half of the year.
But why did Dell choose China? Well, because it’s a fast-growing market, and the company has about 10,000 retail locations where customers can find its products. And also because:
In China, access to Google applications and the Android Market is not available today in many cases. Therefore, the end product (encompassing the hardware, software, and availability of applications, services and solutions) delivered in China will be significantly different to what would be delivered in many other countries. That’s why it makes sense to start there. We will use what we learn in China to shape mobile products we’ll offer in other places down the road. Offering an Android 10” tablet in these markets at a later date allows developers more time to create robust apps, particularly for mobile professionals.
Dell didn’t provide any official images of the Streak 10 Pro, but we have these leaked photos that appeared on the Web not long ago:
Feature-wise, the Streak 10 pro should come with Android Honeycomb, a 1280 x 800 display, Wi-Fi, 5MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, dual-core Tegra 2 processor, and from 16GB to 64G of on-board memory. A price for the tablet has not been given. We’ll certainly keep an eye on this and report back as soon as new info arrives.
