Dell Streak would have US carrier deal
Dell's Streak tablet will launch in the US with a carrier deal for 3G, Taiwan's Commercial Times newspaper said on Tuesday. The normally PC-focused builder is reportedly working "in cooperation" with AT&T to launch the mobile Internet device next year on its network. It may also not be the only model as local manufacturer Qisda is tapped for a "lineup" and not just the one device.
The Streak is expected to represent a deeper commitment to Android past even the Mini 3 and should bring Android 2.0 and a higher resolution 5-inch touchscreen. While intended as a tablet, it may also support calling and serve as a smartphone on AT&T rather than just a data device.
