Dell Streak 5 officially launched!

After a very long wait, Dell Philippines has finally launched its very own Android tablet in the local market — the Dell Streak 5.

Dell Streak 5 specs:
480 x 800 pixels, 5.0 inches TFT capacitive touchscreen
Gorilla Glass display
1 GHz Scorpion processor (Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon)
Adreno 200 GPU
16 GB storage, 512 MB ROM, 512 MB RAM
up to 32Gb via microSD
HSDPA 7.2 Mbps, HSUPA 5.76 Mbps
Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g, Wi-Fi hotspot
Bluetooth 2.0 w/ A2DP
5MP autofocus camera w/ dual-LED flash
720p video recording
Li-Ion battery 1530mAh

The demo units we tried out last night were running Android 2.2 Froyo. Suggested retail price of the Dell Streak 5 is Php27,000.

Announced early last year, the Dell Streak has been selling in the grey market for as high as Php35,000 for several months now. I wonder why it took them so long to bring it to the Philippines. I say better late than never.

  1. the screen size is the catchphrase but the dealbreaker is still the amodel. so i’ll pass.

  2. Something glaringly missing from the comments here is the fact that the 3G still sucks here. I love my iPad and iPhone 4, but it’s usually easier to just find a wifi connection than pray that the 3G service will pull down the information you need before you throw your device across the room in frustration. I’m gonna stick to wifi tablets from now on until one of the providers steps up with some decent 3G somewhere besides Makati.

  3. @wendal. I think it depends on your location and your provider, mine is fast. globe on a galaxy s tethering to my laptop

  4. Nokia Sale?…. No thanks… its just a waste of money

  5. i bought this product december last year. came from my friend sa US. the reason why i bought it was because of its screen size. iphone is too small for me and galaxy tab is too big for a phone.– so far i have no complains.

  6. Dell Streak 5 has a GORILLA GLASS display which means scratch free even if you use any pointed materials, even knife, it won’t get scratch…

    I bought my Dell Steak 5 last May 27, 2011. After a week I found black dots that are spreading on the side of the screen. I returned it to Asianic Parksquare. Their findings was LCD Problem – No sign of physical damage and scratches. I did not even drop it. The scratch free GORILLA GLASS still has a factory screen protector when I returned them for service.

    Today, June 25, 2011, I received a text message that my warranty was void due to crack LCD.. Oh my God! I waited for 3 weeks and I should pay for the service. I only bought a Dell Steak because it has a clone look of my Dell Inspiron Laptop, a twin or a smaller version of my Laptop.. If only I know that Dell Steak 5 quality and durability is not good, I should have buy an iPhone 4.. P27,000.00 + the additional services for my Dell Steak 5, It will cost a lot, might be higher than iPhone 4.. They (Asianic)will contact me again for the additional cost for the service.. Disappointed, but what can I do, I chose to buy Dell Steak 5 instead of iPhone 4.

    Guys, everyone, do not believe on those falls advertisements that say this and that.. I rely on the brand-name of DELL, but now I learned my lessons.. Not every products has the same qualities and not all expensive brands/products has a good quality.. Now it scares me to see DELL on the mall displays..

    Peace out..

    • Change to a better brand. Dell is not really a reliable brand specially when it comes to mobile device. Try to shift to Apple… IPod, IPad, IPhone and Macbook Pro. These wont disappoint you.
