We’ve heard Dell is hard at work on some fresh Android stuff but what we’ve seen so far hasn’t blown us away. This, however, is a little bit more interesting. The folks at Tinhte got their hands on an engineering sample of the Dell Streak that is said to have an 800×480 touch screen, 5MP camera, dual LED flash, MicroSD slot, 1300mAh battery, front-facing camera for video calls and more.

I laughed out loud when I watched the first 45 seconds of this video. When you see the guy smiling back at you in the reflection of the device all I could think of was a deep-voice movie trailer with a narrator saying something like: “Alone in a world of strangers. Cast aside in a time when the world needed him most. One boy… and his Dell Streak…. broke the prejudice paradigm grip on our great universe.”

LOL I’m weird, I know.

At first I thought this thing was pretty sexy looking. Then I realized it looks like the BlackBerry Storm a bit. Then I was contemplating… hmmm. I’ll let you decide for yourself but first one thing – I’m unsure why this is being called a MID when one of the pictures CLEARLY shows an incoming phone call. What gives?
