Dell @ CES 2011: Streaking at the Venue

Dell @ CES 2011: Streaking at the Venue

If you like to see bunnies (and no, we don't mean the fuzzy furry type), then the Palms Casino Resort is your best bet. Normally, it's home to the Playboy Club but for the duration of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2011, the Palms plays host to Dell instead as the computer manufacturer make their announcements and launch of their new products for CES 2011.

Dell showed a quick glimpse of a prototype unit of the Dell Streak 10. We've heard that it's only a static screen though, which means the unit is far from ready.

Now, you may be wondering, just what exactly Dell has up their sleeve, and well, you an expect the usual updates and refreshes to their current models including the successor to the Dell Streak 5. The Streak 5 was only just recently launched in Singapore and already there's a newer and bigger update in the form of the 7-inch Dell Streak 7. There's also a front and rear camera for video chats and Corning's Gorilla Glass for its screen.

The Dell Streak 7, larger, but not as large as an iPad.

The Streak 7 like most of the tablets that we've seen so far, sports NVIDIA's Tegra 2 chip, while only running on Google Android 2.2. Sacrilege you cry? Fret not, Dell most emphatically promised an upgrade to Honeycomb (Google Android 3.0) during the event pretty soon. The Streak 7 is also made for the T-Mobile 4G market as the unit supports it.

Besides the Android Streak 7, an Android phone was also launched - the Dell Venue, which boasts of a 4.1-inch Super AMOLED screen, curved display and a Corning Gorilla Glass screen. The Venue will come unlocked from the Dell.com Mobility Hub, a newly launched site that allows customers to order videos via the room service. Lastly, from what we understand, Dell's extending the Stage UI across to all its platforms, including the new Venue phone.

The Dell Venue is a lovely phone that you will want to get if it's available in your region.

Lastly, Dell also gives its XPS line a size boost with a new 17-inch XPS 17 with 3D stereo capability while the Alienware m17x gets the same treatment together with the upgraded desktop Alienware Aurora systems.

The 3D Stereo enabled Dell Alienware m17x with the latest processors and graphic cards.

The new Dell XPS 17 also sports 3D capabilities, though this is not shown in the picture.
