We are starting to see lots of emerging iPhone & iPad Apps PLUS applications suitable for other mobile devices are also being developed, but 2 of the big players Dell & Apple have just released their latest TV Commercials and it would appear that in the tablet space there’s plenty of focus around whether size does matter or not?

Dell have just released their handheld tablet the Dell Streak which is also a lot more affordable then Apple iPad.

I also think that Open Home visitors will feel more comfortable entering their details into a larger device like the Apple iPad than something that looks like a large phone or a Sony PSP. (for the moment anyway).

Outside of the practical applications for real estate agents the new Dell Streak looks like it could be another interesting play maker in the mobile/portable technology sector. What do you think?
