The Daily Slash: June 28th 2010

With at least one more announcement to go until June can officially end, tonight's edition of The Daily Slash may seem like it's a bit weighted. But, we assure you that, just like any other edition, it'll be worth it. First up, as usual, is the Best of R3 Media. Tucked away inside of it, you'll find that the Dell Streak's available in the UK unlocked, a new domain may make you blush, and now we've got some rumors of the BlackBerry Storm 3.

Dell Streak Retail Packaging Revealed, Maybe

Dell Streak Retail Packaging Revealed, Maybe

There's still plenty of hype out there for the Dell Streak. If you don't recall, we did a pretty handy review of the device not too long ago, and we're definitely looking forward to it. With that being said, the retail packaging was strictly for those in the United Kingdom/Europe, so we've still been left in the dark to what it may look like for the State-side launch, which is still rumored to be some time by the end of July. Well, you can finally count your blessings, because here it is. Maybe.

Toshiba AC100 Tegra 2 MID hands-on [Video]

Toshiba's first MID (Mobile Internet Device) has made its debut, in the shape of the Android-based Toshiba AC100. Using a form-factor we'd more commonly describe as a netbook or smartbook - Toshiba say they picked the classic design over a more common slate-style MID because it's more familiar for users and offers better ergonomics and text-entry - the AC100 runs NVIDIA's second-generation Tegra 250 chipset making it 1080p HD capable.

Dell Streak Review

Dell Streak Review

Since the first rumors many months back, to Michael Dell flashing his prototype in the street and then a few quiet appearances at trade shows, the Dell Streak has taken its time coming to market. Running Android on a broad, eye-catching 5-inch display, there's little like it on the market and it's been an attention-grabber ever since. Yes, the Streak is a device that certainly prompts questions - among geeks and everyday users alike - but the one we set out to answer is simple: is it any good? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Acorp EM501R super-cheap Android MID gets video demo

Acorp EM501R super-cheap Android MID gets video demo

Android tablets are gradually separating into two distinct lines: those from well-known manufacturers, who see the Google platform as a strong contender against Apple's newly-christened iOS, and low-cost OEMs and ODMs who choose it for its free distribution.  We're hoping the latter group will tip into a heap of super-cheap MIDs and slates on the market, and a reasonable example is the Acorp EM501R.  A 4.8-inch MID based on a 600MHz Rockchip ARM9 CPU, Acorp told ARMDevices they'll sell it at just $88 to distributors.
