July 15, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

AT&T has been rumored to make the Dell Streak available on its network from July 19 onwards. Though the carrier’s pricing for the device has not been revealed, the phone will be available as an unlocked device for $500.

The Dell Streak, which is a cross between a tablet and a smartphone, features a 5-inch WVGA display with 800×480 pixel resolution. It has Android 1.6 as its operating software, but it could also receive the Android2.2 update later.

The gadget also packs a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU from Qualcomm and has an onboard storage capacity of 2 GB. External memory cards of up to 32 GB capacity can also be added to the device. There are also two cameras on the Streak, with a 5 megapixel camera placed in the back along with a dual LED flash and a front facing VGA camera for video chatting.

The Streak also has built-in phone capabilities although Dell will be selling it as a portable tablet PC. The device, if launched on July 19, will be the second device to be released on the AT&T network after the Samsung Captivate, in that particular week. Together with the Captivate, which launches on July 18, the devices could also increase the carrier’s subscriber base.

Voice plans from AT&T begin at $ 40 monthly and data plans are charged at an extra $15 for 200MB and $25 for 2GB.
