Dell's Android-based Streak tablet

The Dell Streak is designed to hit a 'sweet spot' between typical smartphones and tablets. During the time we spent with it, the Android-based Streak tablet was wonderful for browsing photos, viewing movies, navigating the Web and reading e-books. It's a whole lot easier to carry than the iPad and it offers the flexibility of the Android platform, unlike Apple's closed iPhone OS. At the moment, it's unknown which Australian carriers will offer the Streak and what sort of data plans will be available.

The ARM-based Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU runs at 1GHz. It gives the Streak enough grunt to display HD video smoothly and it really does look good on the 5in screen.

The Dell Streak is a thin tablet (only around 1cm thick) with nice curves. Here you can see the top view, which includes the camera shutter, power and volume buttons, as well as the audio port.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
