Dell Streak 10 Pro costs equivalent $465 in China
As expected, the Dell Streak 10 Pro has now launched in China. The company's first 10.1-inch tablet runs on Android 3.1 and uses NVIDIA's 1GHz Tegra 2 processor and 1GB of RAM. A 16GB Wi-Fi model with 2GB of cloud storage is priced at 2,999 yuan (about $465).
Other specs include a 1280x800 LCD covered with Gorilla Glass, a five-megapixel rear camera and two-megapixel front camera and an SDHC memory card slot. The side has a microUSB port, and a proprietary 40-pin dock connector charges the tablet. The rear of the slate has a brushed aluminum design and the tablet is 13mm thick and weighs 1.6lbs. The 24.1WH battery is said to last up to 12 hours of life.
Dell revealed docking accessories will arrive soon, including a desktop dock and a multi-purpose one with an HDMI output, microUSB, and another 40-pin connector.
On the software side, Dell customized the Android OS with Dell Divide, a work-oriented homescreen that toggles with the stock one by double-tapping the home button. Divide houses enterprise-oriented widgets and apps and native support for ActiveSync services. The five homescreens can be filled with Dell's Stage widgets like social networking sites, photos, weather and more but China doesn't allow access to the Android Market or Google Maps. These two are replaced by local services.
When the tablet arrives in North America wasn't revealed.
