Dell now marketing Streak as Android-based pocket tablet


Now that the Dell Streak will be featured in TV ads, its got a redesigned product page that introduces the device to the newly informed mainstream consumer as an Android-based pocket tablet (it was previously called a mobile entertainment device that Dell managed to "fit the whole world into"). The page now declares that "Your Pocket Tablet Has Arrived" and features a Flash-laden spot that highlights its navigation, entertainment, and social network functions.

Everything else on the page is the same, including the identification of Android 1.6 as the operating system, so don't expect to find any surprises about the long-awaited 2.2 update there. Froyo is coming soon; it's just not available (not officially, anyway) yet.
