Dell Creates Choice and Freedom to Watch, Surf, Connect and Talk with New 5-inch Pocket Tablet
Singapore, 1 December 2010 – Today Dell announced the impending launch of the much-awaited Dell Streak in Singapore, in partnership with StarHub. The Dell Streak is an all-in-one ultra-portable 5-inch Android™-based Pocket Tablet designed to provide people the best web-browsing, digital entertainment, social connection, and personal navigation experience.
Hitting a Sweet Spot
“The Dell Streak is designed for people who are constantly interacting online and want to expand their ability to access their digital lives on-the-go,” said Varinderjit Singh, Managing Director, Dell Singapore and Malaysia.
The spacious 5-inch screen is ideal for an optimized web-browsing experience with less squinting and pinching. Users can play games and watch HD videos on the brilliant and damage-resistant Gorilla® Glass screen, capture precious moments with the rear-facing 5MP auto-focus camera with dual LED flash or use the front-facing VGA webcam for video calls.
On-the-go students, mobile professionals, and active families can also use the Dell Streak as a portable Wi-Fi hotspot that can be shared with up to eight devices. Additionally, the built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G connectivity will enable users an easy access for downloading and listening to music, updating social networking status in real-time, and staying connected to friends and family through e-mail, text, IM, and voice calls. Personal navigation is also enhanced with the integrated A-GPS and e-compass features for location-based applications.
“The Dell Streak hits the sweet spot between traditional smartphones and larger-screen tablets and its unique size will help people discover new ways to enjoy the web, connect with friends, and navigate their lives,” said Varinderjit Singh. “We are extremely excited to partner with StarHub to deliver this new connected experience to consumers.”
"StarHub enjoys a special partnership with Dell. Amid growing demand for touch tablets and Android-powered devices, we are thrilled to partner Dell to bring Streak to Singapore's consumers," said Mr Ng Long Shyang, StarHub's Head of Sales and Marketing. "This pocket tablet will give our customers an unparalleled mobile entertainment experience on StarHub's advanced HSPA+ network and no-bill-shock local mobile data price plans, with handy access to more than 100,000 Android Market apps, the Internet, instant messaging and social networking services, as well as StarHub's unique mobile offerings.”

The Dell Streak comes with Dell’s new user interface, Stage, which provides users with instant access to their favorite contents.
