Dell Streak could arrive in Asia in 2011

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on August 20th, 2010

The Dell Streak has already streaked across Europe and the US. Now it’s Asias turn. The 5″ Android-powered tablet/smartphone will likely arrive in Asia in early 2011, we just aren’t sure which parts of Asia.

The only way for those living in Asia to get one right now is to purchase a cheap locked model from the States, or pay more for an unlocked European model, neither including shipping costs.

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on August 19th, 2010

Dell’s Inspiron Mini 1018 netbook has finally made its way across the pond to our friends in Europe. Looks like the touchpad has separate left and right buttons, while the processor gets a slight bump to an Intel Atom N455 1.66GHz chip with support for DDR3 memory.

Those changes come with a regular 10.1-inch display at 1024 x 600 resolution, 1GB RAM, a 160GB hard drive and Windows 7 Starter Edition. You can pick it up for around 279 Euros and above, depending on the configuration.

Dell Streak gets torn down

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on August 18th, 2010

And now because you love to look inside of your favorite gadgets, but don’t want to sacrifice your own, we have some Dell Streak teardown pics. As usual, the folks over at iFixIt did the autopsy for you.

There’s really nothing unusual here, but as always it is fun. One interesting thing is that the Streak’s Gorilla Glass front panel is bonded to the LCD, so you’ll have to replace both if it breaks. Other than that we can just enjoy it’s innards and poke around visually.

Dell Streak to go straight to Android 2.2

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on August 16th, 2010

Dell’s 5-inch Streak tablet may just ship with Android 2.2 in North America, according to a Twitter response from a Dell spokesperson. Lionel Menchaca said that his information has the device sporting the latest Android OS in the US.

Previously, the device launched on Friday was only known to be moving to 2.1 at a later point in the year. To refresh your memory the tablet has phone calling capabilities, and base models start at $550 at Dell without a contract. Accesories include peripherals such as Bluetooth headsets, microSD memory cards, docks for your home or car and cases.

Dell Blaze spotted

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on August 16th, 2010

Dell is cooking up some more Android devices and the latest to make its debut is the Android-powered Dell Blaze. The Blaze looks like an entry-level phone with features to match. We don’t have many details, but sadly we do know that this device is apparently running Android 1.5.

We can only hope that Dell will up their game and offer some devices with more recent versions of Android. Come on Dell, the Dell Streak was released with just Android 1.6.

The device pictured is running the vanilla Android 2.1, but it will likely offer a custom skin from Dell when it’s released. The screen resolution of the 4.1-inch display is most likely 800 x 480 pixels and an OLED panel.

Dell Streak and Logitech diNovo Mini keyboard hook up

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on July 25th, 2010

Turns out that the Dell Streak works pretty well with a 5″ Bluetooth keyboard like the Logitech diNovo Mini. They can spend the night attached and then go their separate ways in the morning if they desire.

The Streak does come with Bluetooth, making it easy to synchronize with the keyboard and eliminating your typing troubles. The Logitech diNovo Mini will cost about $100, but finding a used one for a bit cheaper can also happen.

Posted in Dell by Shane McGlaun on July 23rd, 2010

Dell was hit with allegations by the SEC that it had improperly disclosed and used improper accounting when reporting finances between 2001 and 2006. The SEC filed suit against Dell seeking damages because of the alleged practices.

Dell Streak to be available in late July in the US

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on July 21st, 2010

The Dell Streak is so well known it’s as if it’s been available in the US for some time now. In fact, it’s odd that we still don’t have a US release date for Dell’s Streak. Dell isn’t talking.

However, the company’s US product page has been updated to say: “available for purchase in late July.” It would have been nice to get more of a heads up, but at least it is already late July, making your wait a small one.

Dell knowingly sold 11.8 million defective computers

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on June 30th, 2010

Between 2003 and 2005, Dell sold millions of OptiPlex computers. According to documents, Dell knew these systems were full of dangerously faulty motherboards that might catch fire, but sold them anyway.

The NYT paints Dell as a desperate company, so hell-bent on cutting costs that they knowingly sold computers with capacitors that were sure to eventually burst and ooze all over the motherboard and they refused to fix the 1000 affected computers of the firm representing them regarding the related lawsuit. Apparently Dell was fixing these systems with the same faulty motherboard here and there.
