Dell, the information technology company that develops, sells and supports computers are now launching a new “Tablet” on 12 August for half the price of an Apple iPad. The “Dell Streak” tablet as it will be known, will be running on Google’s Android OS and comes with superb features competing against the likes of the Apple iPad. With news of Apple releasing a newer version of the current iPad, does Dell need to be worried?
According to Ben Parr at Mashable, the Dell Streak will feature front and back facing cameras, Wi-Fi, 3G capabilities and a 1 Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. Compare the two iPad’s! The Dell Streak will be smaller and cost less than an Apple iPad which start at a pricier $499.00 for the 16GB version and $629.00 for the 3G. The Dell Streak will retail at $299.99 for a two-year AT&T contract and $549.99 for an unlocked edition.
For users it highlights the question? Dell Streak or iPad? Both iPads have their own unique selling points and if cost comes into the equation then the Dell has to be considered as a stiff contender.
