Now that it’s known that Rogers will be releasing the Dell Streak in November – when it officially becomes available this tablet/smartphone is something you might want to get your hands on. We don’t have a specific release date or pricing yet but do have some solid reading for you. What we’ve got here are the training slides that Rogers employees are perusing through… and there’s some good info/specs to get familiar with.
Rogers states that the Streak “was developed with the following customer segments in mind: Families, Students and Gen Y (young adults), and Affluent Professionals”. In addition, as this comes with Android OS 1.6 they do confirm that “an over-the-air upgrade to Android 2.2 is expected later this year”… hopefully that means sometime by the end of 2010. In the slides Rogers takes some time to compare the Android OS to iOS, BlackBerry 6 and BlackBerry 5.
As for Specs: 5-inch WVGA (800 x 480) LCD supporting capacitive multi-touch with Corning Gorilla Glass, 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 8250 processor, 512 MB ROM + 512MB SDRAM, holds up to 32GB with a microSD card, 5 megapixel, auto-focus with dual LED flash; plus front-facing VGA camera, 3.5 mm headphone jack, GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 1530 mAh battery, weighs 220 grams.
Rogers seems to be loading up on the tablet devices as they will also be releasing the Samsung Tab soon, plus offer plans for the iPad. Check out all the slides and info after the break
