Repeat After Me, ‘The Dell Streak Is Not A Tablet!’

This is an Apple iPad:

  • 9.7-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit glossy widescreen Multi-Touch display with IPS technology
  • 1024-by-768-pixel resolution at 132 pixels per inch (ppi)
  • Fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating
  • Support for display of multiple languages and characters simultaneously
  • 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB flash drive1GHz Apple A4 custom-designed, high-performance, low-power system-on-a-chip
  • Built-in 25-watt-hour rechargeable lithium-polymer battery
  • Up to 10 hours of surfing the web on Wi-Fi, watching video, or listening to music
  • Up to 9 hours of surfing the web using 3G data network

This is a Dell Streak:

  • A sharp 5-inch capacitive multi-touch WVGA (800×480) display for a great full-screen experience watching video or browsing the web
  • Fast 1GHz Snapdragon ARM-based mobile processor from Qualcomm
  • 5 MP autofocus camera with dual LED flash that offers easy point & shoot capability and quick uploads to YouTube, Flickr, Facebook and more
  • VGA front-facing camera enables video chat functionality down the road
  • A user-removable (and replaceable) battery
  • A 3.5mm headphone jack means many of you can use the Dell Streak as the music source (and more) in your car
  • Integrated 3G + Wi-Fi (802.11b/g) + Bluetooth 2.1 (think headsets, external keyboards, stereo headsets, etc.)
  • UMTS / GPRS / EDGE class 12 GSM radio with link speeds of HSDPA 7.2 Mbps / HSUPA
  • A user-accessible Micro SD slot expandable up to 32GB. That means you can store  lots of movies, music, photos or other kinds of files.

These two devices are very different from each other, not only in size but also in function. Anyone who even thinks that these two devices can even be considered similar, is sadly mistaken.

So what do you think? Can these devices be considered the same?

Comments welcome.

    Good lord, Dell just doesn’t get it.

  • Drmgiver

    Not at all. The iPad is a childs toy. The Streak can actually get things done.

    Only time will tell if that smaller tablet form factor will succeed … this time around.

    Others have tried that form factor, like OQO, Archos, HTC, FlyBook, FlipBook, Apple’s Newton, etc.

    Look the same to me. Only difference I see is the guy holding the first one needs a shave.

      The guy needing the shave is poor and can’t afford a razor!

    this thing has full flash capabilities and a more computer like google android.

    it’s Not rly a tablet. But it’s got all the uses of one.
