Dell kills Streak 7 tablet

December 5, 2011

The Dell Streak line of Android tablets haven't been hugely popular with most folks choosing offerings from other makers. The sales of the smallest of the Streak offerings the Streak 5 were bad enough that Dell ended the tablet in August. Dell has now ended the larger sibling to the Streak 5, the Streak 7 reports StreakSmart.

We had heard back in September that T-Mobile would not be updating its 4G version of the Streak 7 to Honeycomb. I am sure we weren't the only ones that thought that move didn't bode well for the tablet. Dell didn't issue a press release or any reasoning for ending the Streak 7 tablet's run. It's easy to assume that the tablet simply didn’t sell enough to justify making it though.

Dell pulled the listings for the Streak 7 from its website and left a note on the Streak 7 page saying it was no longer available online. That would seemingly hint that you might still be able to get a Streak 7 tablet in T-Mobile locations. The obvious downside to buying one at this point is that you will be stuck with whatever Android version is on the tablet when you get it. Perhaps they will be cheaper though since they are no longer being produced.

    Sellings and the chaos on the markets due to the pioneering and maturation period of this product called “tablet” has nothing to do with the quality.
    Dell Streak 5″ is an excellent product, it is the first “smartablet” in the world. Dell effectively created a new product, the smartablet!
    A product between smartphone and tablet for those who consider a stoopid idea (and they are right) to carry 2 terminals and 2 chargers all day long. The proof that Dell was right is that the smartablet “caught” the market and now a line of successful followers came. Galaxy Nexus, Samsung Note and HTC Titan is just the beginning.
