Yesterday Dell officially announced its first 5-inch Android tablet. The announcement was made on the company's official  blog.
So the device is now called the Streak. Previously it was shown at Consumer Electronics Show 2010 as a concept and called the Mini 5. The tablet has a 800x480 pixel capacitive multitouch screen, 1GHz Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm, VGA front-facing camera for video chatting, 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash, removable battery, 3.5mm headphone jack, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and MicroSD-card support. The Streak runs a customized version of Android OS with multitouch support and "Dell UI enhancements". The system allows accessing to 40,000 apps in the Android Market , navigation with Google Maps , support for Google Voice  and Microsoft Exchange Connectivity.
Blogger from the Round Rock company in Texas Lionel Menchasa thinks the Streak may be very perspective:
"I've been at Dell for 16 years, and I don't think there's ever been more buzz around a single Dell product than this. In my view, that's for good reason. Hardware  and design-wise, this thing impresses. Add the ever-increasing capability that Android brings to the equation, and you've got a mobile device that offers a ton of flexibility while looking cool in the process."
The device will be shipped to the UK on June 4 and will be exclusive to the O2 network. Still there is no information on prices, data plans and American partners, but Menсhasa said everything will be soon announced.
In a video above one of the device developers Kevin Andrew tells and shows how useful the Streak may be in the everyday use.
