Dell Streak Withdrawn for Update

July 22, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Dell has left its Streak back home. The 5-inch Android device has been pulled out from stores as well as Dell’s online store.

There are possibilities of the phone being discontinued by Dell, but going by the rumors, the company might have pulled it for an update. The phone, as you may know, is a cross between a tablet and a smartphone.

The device took the shelves last year and was available on AT&T as well as independently. The handset came with Android 2.2 (Froyo) and packed the 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor for power.

It has a 5 megapixel camera with dual LED flash and auto-focus and a front camera for video calling. It sports 2GB internal memory and a micro SD slot expandable up to 32GB.

Other features include Bluetooth for hands-free devices and stereo music streaming, HDMI output for connecting to compatible HDTV’s and a 1530 mAh rechargeable battery for long life on the go. You can also easily upload your photos and video to YouTube, Flickr, Facebook, and more.

The Streak also integrated Google Maps with turn-by-turn navigation, street and satellite views, and has access to the Google Maps with Navigation beta app via the Android Market with text-to-voice functionality.

All in all, it was quite a decent enough handset, so we are thinking Dell might not possibly withdraw it from the market unless for an update. The company has not yet commented on the matter.

If, as we say, the Streak’s being updated then it should be back on shelves sometime in August.
