The Dell Streak, previously known as Dell Mini 5 is coming soon, the Mini Tablet coming to the U.S. in this July.
Dell says that the Streak will be available in the U.S for $500 unlocked, through Dell.com, sometime in early July. It was originally thought that it would cost upwards of $1000, so this is a great price for a high-end device.
This news came frome the D8 conference , as Dell’s Ronald G. Garriques was on hand with a demonstration of the new tablet.

2:33 pm: Ron Garriques takes the stage to showcase the Dell Streak, a five-inch Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth mini-tablet.

He first shows a video from a projector via a dock that ships with the device.

2:35 pm: Kara asks the size question.

Garriques answers that the device has to be large enough to experience the Internet, but small enough to fit in your top pocket.

He says he has given up the phone entirely in favor of his Streak.

2:36 pm: Garriques says that the five-inch screen is 100 percent larger than the average smartphone screen.

2:37 pm: Kara asks what Dell is calling it. Garriques says he doesn’t call it a phone or tablet.

He says that in Europe, the device is free with a two-year contract, adding that carriers around the world are looking for device partners who can “delight customers.”

Walt asks about the age range for target customers. Garriques’ reply: Nine to 94.

2:40 pm: The Streak will appear in the U.S. toward the end of July and cost about $500 at Dell.com, unlocked.

Garriques says you can store hundreds of movies on the device, but won’t give a hard answer on storage numbers. He mentions that it has both a back- and front-facing camera.

TAIPEI (AFP) – Google said Wednesday it is planning to release its Chrome operating system, seen as a rival to Microsoft’s Windows system, for free in the autumn.

“We are working on bringing the device later this fall,” said Google vice president of product management Sundar Pichai at CompuTex Taipei, Asia’s biggest IT trade show.

“It’s something which we are very excited by … We expect it to reach millions of users on day one,” he said.

The open source operating system is based on the Chrome browser, which is designed to work exclusively with web applications.
More than 70 million people use the Chrome browser, according to Google.

The Firefox Addon for the GoogleSharing system. GoogleSharing ultimately aims to provide a level of anonymity that will prevent google from tracking your searches, movements, and what websites you visit.

GoogleSharing is a system that mixes the requests of many different users together, such that Google is not capable of telling what is coming from whom. GoogleSharing aims to do a few very specific things:

  1. Provide a system that will prevent Google from collecting information about you from services which don’t require a login.
  2. Make this system completely transparent to the user. No special websites, no change to your work flow.
  3. Leave your non-Google traffic completely untouched, unredirected, and unaffected.

The basic GoogleSharing install is fairly straightforward:

  1. Download the GoogleSharing Firefox Addon.
  2. Restart Firefox.
  3. You are now browsing with GoogleSharing! All of the appropriate Google traffic will be redirected through a GoogleSharing proxy.
  4. By default, GoogleSharing is enabled. To toggle the GoogleSharing status, simply left-click on the green text that says “GoogleSharing Enabled” in the bottom right hand corner of your browser window.

Apparently, Google’s Nexus One has the hardware capability to connect to wireless-N Wifi networks. iFixit, in their dismantling of the smartphone, found that the wireless NIC was a Broadcom BCM4329EKUBG, a model that does support the N wireless standard.

Google customers have been confused as to the actual software capabilities for such connections, and it’s become clear that the “N” was taken out of the spec sheet when it was determined that Android wasn’t reliable enough with the connection to warrant spec sheet love. Nevertheless, users continue to report connectivity on their N networks, and modders like cyonogen have released modded Andorid ROMs with N connectivity enabled.

Android and Me reports that Broadcom and Google have released a new wireless driver for the Nexus One that specifically addresses wireless-N connectivity, and seems to have fixed the problem. Users with the wherewithal to install custom drivers in their OS are able to take advantage of this functionality. There is speculation that Google will be packaging this driver update in Android 2.2, codenamed Froyo. As the driver is fully functional, and for lack of an official announcement, this seems to be the most likely scenario.
