Dell announced that the Streak, a touch-screen tablet computer is real and will first see daylight in the UK next month (June) and later in the summer in the US to AT&T.

The Streak (once known as the Mini 5) is a 5″ screen with a Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU and running Google’s Android OS (not Chrome OS, by the way), and has WiFi and 3G network connectivity.

Here’s the interesting thing about the Streak – it can take/make cellular phone calls! But no, it’s not being called a smartphone. Stay tuned for how this really plays out.

No word on pricing yet, but it better beat the iPad‘s and it had better beat the performance demonstrated in a video from January.
