Meet the Dell 'Streak', a 5-inch Android-powered MID that packs a 800x480 capacitive touchscreen (with multitouch!), 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 5-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, and runs Android 2.0 'Eclair'. There are also 3 touch sensitive buttons on the right side and what appears to be a front-facing camera for video conferencing. This isn't a complete surprise since we've heard of Dell's interest in creating an Android-powered, iPod Touch competitor before, but it's certainly an exciting proposition.

After the US was initially ignored by the China-only Dell mini 3i smartphone, it looks like Dell is re-focusing on their home market. Reports have shown that the Dell mini 3i will makes its way to the US market and the 'Streak' should follow suit.

What do you guys think?

Android Central posted a video by these guys before for the Tattoo a few months ago. It scared the hell out of me simply cause i wasn't expecting it. All that aside what an amazing looking device. I really liked the keyboard.

forgive me i'm new to android central... but is that what it's like surfing the web on an android? It's very sluggish...

When he was multi touching zooming in and out it was really sluggish, and also scrolling throught he web page...

From what i read hear this looks on PAPER like it would be an amazing phone, i love the hardware features..

and i don't have major issues with android.. EXCEPT that every single time i watch videos of it, it's sluggish... wth?

it's weird that this MID has 3G access, but isn't a phone. i wonder how that will work (who would you subscribe with, how would they charge you, etc)

curious to see how this is going to play out

i think most US cell providers now offer data-only 3g plans for around $30-$40
