The Streak, which runs on the Android mobile OS, is "a hybrid device that lies in the space between a smartphone and other larger tablets or netbooks," according to Dell executive Lionel Menchaca.

"The Dell Streak brings together a great Web browsing experience, multitasking capability, slick turn-by-turn navigation, and a great way to enjoy your photos, movies and music into a sleek device that's built for mobility," Menchaca said.

Despite the Streak's apparent similarities with the Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) iPad, Dell officials downplayed such comparisons.

"I wouldn't position it against the iPad; while we do share some common features, the Streak also offers phone features," Dell spokesperson Matthew Parretta told TechNewsWorld. "The Streak's a data-centric device with voice capabilities that's designed to be an extremely small, portable, and still give the real Web experience you can't get on a three-inch-screen device."
