Dell finally launched the 10-inch Streak tablet it teased at CES 2011 by unveiling the Honeycomb-powered Streak 10 Pro in China.
The Dell Streak 10 Pro is very similar to the half a dozen or so other 10.1-inch Honeycomb tablet on the market as it sports a 1280 x 800 Gorilla Glass screen, 1GHz NIVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core chip, 1GB of RAM, and like the Toshiba Thrive, aluminum back, full-sized SD card slot. The 16GB will cost $466 (2999 yuan converted) and includes 2GB of cloud storage.
Earlier this summer, Dell announced plans to launch the Streak 10 Pro in China due what Dell claims is a “tremendous growth opportunity.” The company’s last tablet, the Dell Streak 7, was made available in the US and met with a lukewarm critical reception owing to its poor battery life and low-resolution screen.
It’s unclear if Dell will every launch the Streak 10 Pro in the US, with representatives claiming, “We will evaluate other regions and segments in the second half of 2011.”
If and when the Dell Streak 10 Pro does hit the US market, it will face competition from the Toshiba Thrive and Lenovo ThinkPad Honeycomb tablet as 10.1-inch Honeycomb tablets targeting the enterprise user.
