Review Dell Streak 7" Tablet/MID

 

Medium or well-done? Dell also wants a part of the tablet market

Very handy, small size; Fast Tegra2 processor; A 16 GB memory; Controls; GPS receiver

No HDMI; Omitted basic applications; High price

The competition in the 7 inch market sector is very high, but until now none of the tested 7 inch devices could hold a candle to the Streak.

Dell Streak 7 Review

 

Dell has just introduced the Dell Streak 7, a tablet that is marketed as a potent product to work, but also to play, watch video and “be watched” in video calls. The Streak 7 is also presented as an accomplished eReader and an overall multimedia device...

Now, if you want an Android Tablet and you’re still unsure, the smart thing to do is to wait a few weeks as there’s an Android Tablet tsunami about to hit the stores – the iPad 2 should come out soon as well. I hope that this review has helped you...

Dell Streak Strikes Out

 

The 7-inch version of Dell's Android-powered tablet is fast, but it's saddled by dismal battery life and poor design.

Expert review by:

Dell Streak 7

 

The Dell Streak 7 tablet offers dual-core processing, 4G network compatibility, Adobe Flash 10.1 support, front and rear cameras, and an inventive reimagining of Android 2.2.

Dell's Stage interface doesn't make up for the stale operating system. Screen quality and responsiveness are not as good as they could be.

The Dell Streak 7 polishes Android 2.2 to a tablet-worthy shine, and is the first to deliver 4G compatibility--but it's not enough to distract us from the incoming wave of Android 3.0 tablets.

I want to see how the Streak 7 performs when either Gingerbread or Honeycomb become available as an update. From things like multi-threaded support, more tablet centric OS and speed / performance gains all things that will add value to not only tablets...

Let's be honest, the original Dell Streak had a bit of an identity crisis. The 5-inch device wasn't sure if it belonged in the tablet or smartphone

Clean design, attractive Stage software layer ; Snappy Tegra 2 processor ; Fast T-Mobile HSPA+ speeds

Low 800 x 480-resolution display ; Less than six hours of battery life ; No tablet optimized apps

Dell Streak 7

 

Dell's second Android tablet has plenty of power, but its endurance is sorely lacking.

Despite its speedy processor and competitive pricing, the Streak 7 is one Android tablet we simply can't recommend. Because of its unacceptably short battery life, this slate is far less portable than even the weakest smart phone and has less than half...

Dell Streak 7 (T-Mobile)

 

Before we get to the good stuff, here's what the Streak 7 will cost you: T-Mobile offers two different payment plans. The Overage Free Plan gives you 5GB of data per month; T-Mobile reduces data speeds and throughput once you exceed your 5MB monthly...

Tegra 2 processor makes it the fastest tablet we've tested. Sensitive capacitive touch screen. 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, front-facing camera

Download/upload speeds not comparable with other 4G devices. Preloaded apps for video and photo use lower resolution and image quality by default. Video chat apps are nearly unusable. Poor battery life

One of the first Tegra 2 tablets, the Dell Streak 7 shows the promise of Nvidia's speedy mobile processor, but struggles in several different ways. This is not the 'droid you're looking for.

Even though they're still trying to secure carrier partnerships for their products, Dell is no stranger in the Android space especially when it caught us by surprise with the original Dell Streak. Luckily for them, they were able to snag T-Mobile's...

An entry-level tablet that gives you what you pay for, which isn't saying much

Access to the Android Market

Lousy screen experience; Awful battery life; Crashes with depressing regularity
