Dell Streak will sell for Rs 35,000 in India, Tata Docomo post pay users will free 500 MB free usage for first six months on buying Dell Streak.
This large smartphone or a small tablet, whatever you want to call it comes with a 5 inch touch screen Gorilla Glass display, which is scratch resistant. Featuring a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, Dell Streak comes with 5 MP Auto focus camera with dual LED flash, and 2 GB of internal storage.
