Dell Streak Pro 101DL to be first smartphone to run Baidu's Yi


In early September, we reported on the partnership between Dell and Baidu, a company that's often referred to as the "Chinese Google" due to its massive search engine in China. The partnership was formed to help Baidu push its Yi (or "easy" in English) operating system, which is essentially Android with ties into Baidu's services instead of Google's.

The device in the picture above is the Dell Streak Pro 101DL, and it's going to be the first phone to run the operating system. It's currently slated for Chinese carrier Softbank, but it's also shown up in the FCC database. 

Although a bit smaller than the Streak 5, the 4.3-inch Streak Pro is still a pretty compelling phone. That display is of the AMOLED variety and comes with a crisp resolution of 960 x 540. It's all covered in Gorilla Glass, too, just like the other Streaks. Driving the display is a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm processor, and there will be 8GB of built-in storage expandable by way of microSD, too. 

Rumor has it that the Streak Pro will be out in China as early as tomorrow, costing $475.
