Dell Streak MID running Android 2.0 comes out of hiding

It's been a while since we've heard any good MID rumors out of Dell, but the details coming out today are about to make up for that, and then some. Seems like one lucky fellow over in Vietnam was able to get some hands-on time with what's being called the Dell Streak MID, which is running the newest Eclair (aka, Android 2.0) software courtesy of Google.

Other specs include a 5-inch, 800×400 capacitive touchscreen with multitouch, full 3G broadband support plus WiFi and Bluetooth, and a 5.0 MP camera with dual-LED flash. Also coming along for the ride are a microSD slot, a 1300 mAh battery, and what looks like a front-facing camera. It apparently comes in two colors, based on the pictures, and features touch-sensitive controls along the front bezel.

A few more pictures follow past the break, along with a video showing some of the features of the admittedly prototype device and software.

From what I have read so far, most people seem to think the Streak does not have phone capabilities, but if you look closely at the video and pictures, you can clearly see an "incoming call" picture and a carrier banner during the video. If it does in fact work as a phone, this could be a very interesting competitor to the upcoming Nokia N900.

Oh, who am I kidding? The Streak looks like an awesome device, phone or not. Let's hope Dell can get this thing into production and onto the stock shelves within the near future.
