Dell Streak 7 review


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 Android 2.2 (Froyo) update review


Dell Streak. Froyo. Need we say more? If you're not already getting giddy, let us remind you that said tabletphone's technically still stuck on the

Dell Mini 5 / Streak prototype impressions


Dell's puzzled the world for quite some time with its outlandish Mini 5 / Streak -- at first glance it's just another Android-based MID, but a quick

Great screen with wide viewing angle ; Good overall build quality ; Intuitive Android skin

Review: Dell Streak 7


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

Fast. Cheap

Mattel Football had a better screen. Dismal battery life. Crashed twice — once going dark for an hour — in the first day of testing

Dell Streak 7 (T-Mobile)


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.

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.

Internally, the Streak 7 makes waves where no other tablet has: it features the Nvidia Tegra 2—a system-on-a-chip with the first mobile dual core CPU. While we expect to see the Tegra 2 in many tablets in the coming year (and it has already appeared in...

Dell Streak 7 review:


Editors' note: Thanks to the release of recent, high-quality tablets, the overall score of the Streak 7 has been adjusted down from 7 to 5.

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.

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


Coming to T-Mobile as their first 4G tablet, Dell is set to launch its foray into the 7-inch tablet market with the Dell Streak 7. Packed with NVIDIA's Tegra 2 dual core processor and a 7-inch 800x480 Gorilla Glass touch screen. Is it poised to take on...

Having used the Tab for over a month and now after using the Streak for five days, the performance advantages of the Streak 7 give it the edge in my opinion. The Streak 7 will perform and in some cases outperform other tablets in the 7′ inch range with...

Tablet Phone. Notebook editor meets smartphone - no, actually a MID (Mobile Internet Device) for sticking to Dell's classification of the Streak. Read in our review about how this adventure will turn out and what you can expect from this device.
