First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Dell's Android-based Streak tablet
The Dell Streak is designed to hit a 'sweet spot' between typical smartphones and tablets. During the time we spent with it, the Android-based Streak tablet was wonderful for browsing photos, viewing movies, navigating the Web and reading e-books. It's a whole lot easier to carry than the iPad and it offers the flexibility of the Android platform, unlike Apple's closed iPhone OS. At the moment, it's unknown which Australian carriers will offer the Streak and what sort of data plans will be available.
The ARM-based Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU runs at 1GHz. It gives the Streak enough grunt to display HD video smoothly and it really does look good on the 5in screen.
The Dell Streak's screen is 5 inches.

The Dell Streak is a thin tablet (only around 1cm thick) with nice curves. Here you can see the top view, which includes the camera shutter, power and volume buttons, as well as the audio port.
