During his keynote speech yesterday at the the Citrix Synergy conference, Dell founder and CEO Michael Dell confirmed that the company's Streak Android-based tablet, formerly known as the Mini 5 tablet, will be available in Europe next month from mobile phone carrier Telefonica O2, which offers service in the UK, Ireland, Germany, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Mr Dell also added that it would be available from the GSM carrier AT&T in the US "later this summer".
The Streak mobile internet device was first shown off at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas as a prototype and later at the 2010 Mobile World Congress(MWC) in Barcelona. According to gadget site Engadget, which was even given a prototype of the device, the tablet features a 5 inch touch screen, a 5 Megapixel camera, built-in Wi-Fi and 3G. A specific release date and price, however, have yet to be announced.
