Last Saturday, the June 4th 2011, I had an opportunity to be at the Unveiling of Dell Streak-5 at a local hotel in Karachi. The event was greatly managed by Shamrock, (if I’m not wrong) the official event management company of Mobilink GSM.
A pre-unveiling session for Social Media Gurus and Bloggers was also arranged where all the stake holders like Dell, Mobilink-GSM and Google for being Android OS Provider presented their presentation and spoke about the Dell Streak-5. Besides some small giveaways to the participants, a competition was also arranged for the Twitter/Facebook Social Media Activist who were present at the session and a brand-new, box-packed Dell Streak-5 tablet was given away to the winner whose tweets about Dell Streak-5 posted during the session were most re-tweeted by his followers. Later, the official unveiling of Dell Streak-5 was done at another but relatively a bigger event, where all the CEOs, COOs, SEOs and Gurus from different I.T. and Telecom Companies were present.
The Dell Streak-5, in my eyes is an ultimate gadget of its kind. It indeed is a great innovation by Dell, and by joining hands with Mobilink GSM in Pakistan, I am sure that this product will capture the Market and make its place very soon as we all know that Mobilink GSM is already called a trend setter in bringing smart phones through their carrier like Motorolla, Blackberry, HTC HD7, Samsung Galaxy Tablet etc.
The Dell Streak-5 is a perfectly sized pocket table having an advanced capacitive multi-touch screen with corning gorilla glass protection. I got hooked to it as I touch it and use it for a moment… (Awaiting my set, Dell ! )
The introductory offer by Mobilink GSM is costing Rs.49,999/-, which includes 3 Months of Mobile Internet (EDGE with 2GB Limit), an Extra Battery and a Leather Case.
