China is the largest in the emerging market category and the second fastest-growing & largest in the emerging market category right after the U.S. But this time Dell decided to launch its highly anticipated 10-inch tablet in the Chinese market first, based on an emerging belief that the U.S. market isn't mature enough for a successful Android launch.

The Dell Streak 10 is Dell's third tablet product and its first 10-inch Android-based tablet. Some of the main specifications of the Android tablet are these, a thickness of 12 millimeters, a weight of about 700 grams, edge-to-edge glass, a 1280-by-800 screen, front and rear facing cameras (including a 5 megapixel camera), full 1080p video playback, an SD slot, and an Nvidia Tegra dual-core processor. The tablet can also be purchased with a dock that has multiple USB ports, a USB host mode that allows PC-like emulation capabilities, HDMI video, the ability to run separate Citrix sessions on external monitors, and an Ethernet port, among other features.

By the end of the this year, there will be 2,000 service centers where customers can bring Dell products, in addition to around 10,000 stores that sell Dell products in China. Instead of trying to swim upstream let's go someplace where the growth rates are much more interesting, the adoption rates are much faster, the consumer is much more became one of those aha moments to the myriad problems in the U.S. Android tablet market. The U.S. market simply doesn't offer a viable 10-inch tablet strategy for Dell.

Things like confusion over what exactly Android is bringing to the tablet, an immature platform and roll out of devices that weren't quite ready yet.

Sony plans to replace its Alpha NEX-3 interchangeable-lens camera with the smaller, but not tremendously different, NEX-C3. And uses the same format APS-C image sensor as its predecessor, including multishot modes like Auto HDR, Handheld Twilight, and Sweep panorama, bumping resolution is from 14 megapixels to 16 megapixels. Sony says the new entry-level cam is designed to fill the gap between point-and-shoot and DSLR cameras, and is the smallest body to pack in offering DSLR-level image quality -- the same 16.2 MP chip is also included in its new full-size Alpha A35, which replaces the A33. Both cameras can shoot at up to 5.5 fps (the A35 adds a 7 fps mode at 8.4 megapixels), and include 3-inch LCDs, with the NEX keeping its hallmark tilt display, and the A35 adding Sony's Translucent Mirror live-view mode, and an electronic viewfinder.

Sony delayed shipping the C3 for a few months until it's ready to announce a replacement for that model. In line with Sony's goal of improving the user experience for beginners, the NEX-C3's Photo Creativity interface simplifies the process of adjusting advanced settings, to help grow the skills of those new to DSLR shooting. The NEX-C3 ships in late July or August, and will be offered with those familiar 18-55mm and 16mm kit lenses for $649 and $599, respectively. Bodies paired with the zoom will be available in black, pink, and silver, while the camera in the fixed-lens kit will only ship in black. The A35 will hit stores in August for $699 with an 18-55mm kit lens, or $599 for the body.

On the other hand, unless you really want the thinner body or 1080/60i video, there's no real reason to wait for it to ship either. Sony also announced a 30mm f3.5 E-mount macro lens that can focus down to just under an inch and a higher-powered, but still camera-powered, bounce-capable add-on flash than the one that ships with it (GN20 as opposed to GN7). The lens is scheduled to ship in October for $249.99 and the flash in August for $149.99.

We personally really liked the both cameras, looking for your feedback....
