Dell Mini 5 iPad rival named Streak, boasts Kindle integration

Dell’s Mini 5 tablet, which we saw as a Dell slate Android prototype at CES in January, has appeared in a leaked presentation. The document reveals that the Mini 5 is currently called the Dell Streak and promises to include Kindle integration. Should Apple be worried for the iPad?

The Mini 5, Dell’s tantalising tablet, will feature a 5in WVGA (800 x 480) touchscreen, capacitive buttons on its front, a 5MP camera with autofocus on flash and front-facing VGA camera for video chat.

The leaked Dell Mini 5 presentation also reveals that the device will come in an array of colours and offer the opportunity for custom skins through Dell Design Studio.

The Dell Mini 5 leak also reveals plans to call the tablet the Dell Streak. That may be a codename but the Dell Streak name was slapped on the Mini 5 tablet way back in October 2009 so we suspect it’s a keeper.

Most excitingly, the leaked Dell Mini 5/Dell Streak presentation reveals that Dell has a content partnership with Amazon on the cards. That means the Dell Mini 5 will have Kindle ebook reader integration as well as Amazon MP3 and Amazon video.

The iPad has the iTunes, the iTunes App Store and iBooks but it doesn’t yet have a camera (though iPad iChat rumours abound). The Dell Mini 5 with Android and Amazon Kindle smarts could be a real iPad fighter. Or would you rather grab the HP Slate?
