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?
