Dell Streak Pro 101DL Android Handset to Debut in Japan

Dell Streak Pro 101dl

Apparently Dell still wants in on the Android handset game. To that end, they’ve announced the Dell Streak Pro 101DL for SoftBank in Japan.

Despite the lackluster sales figures with the other devices in the Streak line – Dell Streak 5, Streak 10 Pro – it seems that the company is at it again with this latest cell phone entry.  According to Keitai Watch (in Japanese), the new Dell Streak Pro 101DL will come to Japan this fall, with other territories to follow some time in the future.

Considering the number of Android handsets out there these days, it’s going to be difficult for them to crack this market.  The Dell name may be well-known in the world of computers, but the brand just isn’t one that pops into your mind when it comes to mobile technology.  And while this may sound like a decent phone today – and I literally mean today – by the time the company moves this out of Japan (whenever that may be), it could be viewed as under-powered.  Quad-core chips are right around the corner.  Ice Cream Sandwich is right around the corner.  And all that can make this look like something straight out of mid-2011.

You have to give Dell props for continually trying. It’s just sad that they can’t quite seem to get there.
