Best known for its computers and monitors, Dell has just announced it will soon offer its Streak Pro smartphone in China, a key market for the company. Already promised for the Japanese market, the device is the first with the Baidu Yi mobile platform from China's Internet search giant Baidu. It integrates the popular Ting music service and other cloud services also offered by the search engine.
Hoping to shed its reputation for mid-range and budget smartphones, Dell has taken the unusual approach of going for the very highest end of the field with the Streak Pro 101DL. Borrowing the name of Dell's tablets, it's rare in carrying a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED screen at 540x960; most AMOLED screens stop at 480x800. A dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor, an eight-megapixel rear camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front camera also put it more clearly at the top of the ranks.
Dell's upcoming 10-inch Streak Pro tablet will get a debut in China first, according to company executives speaking to CNET. The reasons for this are the relative immaturity of Android in the US and carrier control. The device, which will sport a 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 5-megapixel camera and 1280x800 resolution, was expected to come to the US or Europe first.
