,----[ Quote ]
| Dell introduced the Streak, a tablet with a 
| 5-inch touch screen and the Android OS, May 
| 25. Unlike the Apple iPad, the Streak is 
| also a phone, offers multitasking and can 
| support Adobeâs Flash for viewing video and 
| animations. Its size, however, may give some 
| consumers pause. Some analysts have called 
| it an oversized Android smartphone targeted 
| at high-end consumers wanting a tablet-style 
| Web-browsing experience.

| to use in a class-room (especially 
| considering the cost of books and the 
| probability that theyâll be beat up over a 
| short period of time).
