So much news passes before our collective eyes every day that we couldn't possibly cover it all. Mostly because much of it isn't worth covering! But here are a some borderline tidbits we passed on, just in case.
To celebrate the release of the new Dell Streak tablet, a genius Dell sales manager in Round Rock, Texas wanted to boost employee spirit and make it an event to remember. Too bad his ridiculous plan got him and another employee arrested.
If it was possible to drown in plastic and silicon, we would so choke to death on all the Android tablets coming soon. This is a guide to not making one. The Dell Streak 7 followed it precisely.
Tablets! Tablets tablets tablets. They're the hot ticket at this year's CES. Just about everyone's got one (not that everyone should). We've parsed, prodded, and played with the main contenders. And this one's best. Well, these ones.
The 7-inch version of Dell's Streak tablet has been rumored and teased for months, but today it's officially official! And what it lacks in size it makes up for in sweet, speedy 4G goodness.
We had heard that the 5" Streak wouldn't be Dell's largest play in the tablet game, and now Michael Dell has confirmed that they're working on a 7" Android tablet, too. Hopefully one with a recent Android build, this time.
At 5-inches, the Streak is a lot more portable than the iPad—but still not quite as pocket-friendly (lab coat-friendly?) as the iPhone. Nonetheless, that's where Dell wants to place its tablets, ramming it with a healthcare software app.
The remaining details of Dell Streak's release continue to trickle out. This morning we learned it would eventually run Froyo. Now we know the price: $299 with a 2 year AT&T contract or $549 unlocked. Updated
Once known as the Mini 5, the Streak will be launching first in Europe with O2 Telefonica, and then "later this summer" with AT&T in the States, according to CEO Michael Dell.
Dell's latest Android tablet designs, now named "Streak," are much different—much more iPad like—than the Mini 5 we saw a few months back at CES.

That 5-inch Dell mini-tablet we saw in a leaked video last month looked like it had U.S. spec 3G, and now a Chinese-language Commercial Times report suggests the touchscreen device will be part of a new series headed to AT&T.
