Dell Streak, the 5’’ Android tablet has been launched in India (today) and the tablet is priced at Rs. 35,000.
Dell Streak is a hybrid device that lives in the space between a smartphone and other larger tablets or netbooks. The tablet is super-thin (10mm-which is thinner than a lot of mobile devices out there), and it’s just a bit heavier than other smartphones. Dell will also offer all kinds of Dell Streak accessories like a car dock kit, battery replacements, a home AV dock and more, along with the tablet.
Dell Streak has special offers for Tata DoCoMo postpaid users (they will get 500 MB data usage free for the first 6 months) and will be sold via Dell exclusive stores and tata docomo ‘dive in’ centres.
