Dell goes Streak-ing through the Quad? Come on Everybody!

Surprised me with the marketing tagline: The new Dell Streak.  More than a smartphone.  More than a tablet. 

While it’s interesting that Dell has a phone that is based on Google Android, what I actually find most interested about this is that it uses Gorilla Glass.  For those that don’t know, Corning invented Gorilla glass back in 1962 as a super strong glass.  It has pretty much sit lifeless as a product ahead of its time and didn’t have any real applications until recently.  Gorilla glass is perfect for tablets, phones, flat screen televisions because of it’s strength and durability. 

I know that Dell has been in the PDA market for years, and I also knew that the Dell super megastore has sells phones.  The Dell Streak is finally here!  Looks like you can have one for only $549.99, and only $299.99 with a 2 year contract on AT&T.  Another funny thing is that the Dell phone isn’t listed on the Dell store!
