Tablet Wars

Dell rolls out new device designed to take on the iPad.

The new Dell Streak hopes to play the "David" to Apple's iPad "Goliath".

The supposed contender to the iPad throne is much smaller.

It's screen is five inches in size, about half that of the iPad.

For a tablet, that's pretty small.

For a phone, though -- which the Streak has -- it's actually pretty darn big.

That's what makes the difference to Paulina Baytler.

Paulina knows all about the iPad, but hey, she already has a laptop, and the Apple device doesn't come with a phone or a camera.

The Streak has both, and she's sold.

"I like it," she says, "because it's small and compact."

That's not to say that Apple should be worried about the Streak.

Early reviews have been mixed at best.

Still, if Paulina is any indication there just may be a market for a tablet that's smaller.

The Streak will fit into a pocket or purse, and with the Android operating system, it does a lot.

It's also a bit cheaper.

With a contract (Dell, like Apple, is going exclusively with AT&T on this one), it'll cost you $300.
