Michael Dell shows off Android-powered Mini 5

Crunchgear caught up with Michael Dell in Switzerland and he was showing off the new Android-powered Mini 5 (aka Streak, M01M). Nothing official has been announced, but a teardown revealed most of the specs. The Mini 5 has often been referred to as a MID or slate because it features a 5 inch screen, but the device also has support for 3G.

Rumored specs of the Mini 5 include:

  • 5-inch 800×480 touchscreen
  • 1 GHz Snapdragon processor
  • 5 megapixel camera with dual-LED flash and front facing camera
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, and 3G support
  • 1530mAh battery
  • Android 1.6

We know Dell will soon be launching an Android device on AT&T and this might be it (or the Mini 3). The Mini 5 is said to retail for ¥7,500, which converts to an astronomic $1,098, but we expect the actual U.S. retail price to be much lower.

What do you guys think? Is a 5 inch screen too large to be a phone?
