T-Mobile for about $200 and is an interesting offering. I would bet that there are some users that would be more inclined to try the Streak 7 if the thing could do voice calls.

Dell Streak 7 up for order, as promised, with the 7-inch Tegra 2 slate priced at $199.99 with a new, two-year agreement (and after a $50 mail-in rebate). The Streak 7 supports HSPA+ along with video calls using a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera. It's not all good news, however. The Streak runs Android 2.2 Froyo, rather than Honeycomb, and there's no word on when - or indeed if - it will see an upgrade. Plus, the display runs at WVGA resolution, which is low when you consider the Galaxy Tab is 1024 x 600. More in Ben Bajarin's review over at SlashGear.
a review of the brand spanking new Dell Streak 7, a tablet very similar in shape and form to the Samsung Galaxy Tab, running Android 2.2 on a 7" 800×480 Gorilla Glass touch screen display. This is T-Mobile's first 4G tablet, made by Dell obviously, and it's made with landscape mode squarely in mind. Take a closer look with Ben as he does an in-depth look at the tablet that's next on stage.
has announced pricing and availability for the Dell Streak 7, which will go on sale on February 2 2011. The 7-inch 4G HSPA+ Android slate will be priced at $199.99 with a new, two-year agreement (and following a $50 mail-in rebate). As promised, that's significantly less than the rumored pricing that circulated earlier this month. More information - plus a sign-up notifier - at T-Mobile's update page here.
rumored Dell Streak 7 pricing calculated from apparent payment plan information on the T-Mobile site is wrong, according to the carrier. T-Mobile USA pinged us to let us know that the figures on the information page are the result of a "technical error", and that there's no official word on pricing as yet. We're guessing that means someone on the web team accidentally copied and pasted Equipment Installment plan details from another product page when putting the Streak 7 listing together. So, all guesses are back on as to whether the slate will drop at more or less than the rumored $330.
Dell Streak 7, with what looks to be Equipment Installment plan details spotted on the carrier's product page. Streak Smart noticed the 7-inch tablet's fine-print mentioning an "$82.50 down payment, plus 3 monthly payments of $82.50, required"; that would work out to $330. Although there's no mention of the Equipment Installment plan on the page itself, the text follows the format from other T-Mobile product pages.
A Couple More Weeks At Least - they weren't fooling!
Dell Streak 7 is an interesting sounding little tablet computer that was shown off at CES. The machine has a 7-inch screen and runs Android 2.2. The choice of the older OS was a big question in many minds when the other new tablets at the show were landing with Android 3.0.
Dell Streak 7, its 7-inch Android 2.2 tablet, set to hit T-Mobile in the coming weeks. The Streak 7 runs NVIDIA's 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor with WiFi and HSPA+ 4G support, along with Bluetooth 2.1 and a front facing 1.3-megapixel webcam. The front is covered in toughened Gorilla Glass. Internal storage is 16GB and there's an SD card slot suitable for up to 32GB cards. The Dell Streak 7 measures 7.87” x 4.72” x 0.49”. No word on pricing at this stage. [youtube 6Lh7SUfNg3M] [gallery] Press Release:
T-Mobile Doubles the Speed of America’s Largest 4G Network and Introduces Its First 4G Tablet: the Dell Streak 7 LAS VEGAS, Nev. and BELLEVUE, Wash. — Jan. 6, 2011 — Today at the 2011 International CES, T-Mobile USA CEO and President Philipp Humm highlighted the company’s network leadership, supported by Nielsen data confirming that T-Mobile delivered the fastest wireless data performance in the top 100 U.S. markets during the second half of 2010.1 In addition, Humm announced the nationwide availability of T-Mobile’s 4G network, now reaching approximately 200 million people in 100 major metropolitan areas. “In 2010, we delivered on our ambitious goal to become America’s largest 4G network, and this year our customers will be able to experience speeds equivalent to home broadband while on the go,” said Humm. “We’ll continue to focus on fueling the adoption of mobile data, by offering innovative and affordable smartphones and tablets, as well as aggressive data plan pricing and rich and compelling data services.” T-Mobile also unveiled plans to double the speed of its 4G network this year, which will be capable of delivering peak download speeds of up to 42 Mbps. Moreover, the company announced that in 2011 it will launch at least 25 new 4G devices, starting with its first 4G tablet — the Dell™ Streak 7, expected to be available at T-Mobile stores across the country in the coming weeks. The company vowed to aggressively expand and evolve its 4G smartphone portfolio, launching additional devices capable of delivering peak download speeds of up to 21 Mbps in the first half of 2011, and smartphones capable of delivering peak download speeds of up to 42 Mbps in the second half of the year. The cutting-edge download speed was demonstrated today by company representatives using a T-Mobile laptop stick developed by ZTE, capable of delivering peak download speeds of up to 42 Mbps and slated to launch in the first half of 2011. By doubling the speed of its 4G network, T-Mobile will offer its customers an unprecedented wireless experience, fueled by improved performance in the use of rich media applications, including creating and sharing mobile content, streaming video, and participating in multi-player gaming and videoconferencing. The company expects 140 million Americans in 25 metro areas to have access to these increased 4G speeds by mid-2011. T-Mobile’s enhanced speed capabilities will also benefit its customers using existing 3G devices for data services, as the backward-compatible network enables 3G devices to achieve their maximum speed performance. “We are pleased to support T-Mobile as it continues to deploy and develop its 4G network, which today is delivering next-generation speeds and performance to hundreds of millions of customers,” said Angel Ruiz, president and CEO, Ericsson North America. “We are confident that HSPA+ will continue to offer a viable and cost-effective alternative to LTE and WiMAX, providing a comparable 4G experience to customers for the foreseeable future. And, with a strong and growing ecosystem of network equipment and handsets, we anticipate that HSPA+ can develop into one of the most advanced technology platforms in the industry.” “Consumers are increasingly embracing the benefits of smartphones, with 80 percent of U.S. mobile customers wanting a smartphone, and as many as 100 million of them not yet having one,” said Cole Brodman, chief marketing officer, T-Mobile USA. “Our compelling offering of affordable broadband devices and consumer-friendly data plan pricing will enable customers to step up to mobile data and 4G, and our customers will not pay a toll to ride on our 4G superhighway.” About the Dell™ Streak 7 T-Mobile’s first 4G tablet, the Dell Streak 7, is capable of peak speeds up to 21 Mbps to provide a super-fast 4G mobile broadband experience for watching movies and entertainment through preloaded content and thousands of widgets, games and applications available on Android Market™.

T-Mobile's site has been quietly updated to mention the Dell Streak 7, which has now been added to the Discover drop-down menu. Spotted by TmoNews, the link itself leads to a 404 page, but it's more evidence that the 7-inch Android tablet is fast incoming. The Dell Streak 7 is expected to include both T-Mobile and AT&T 3G support in a single version, as well as having NVIDIA's Tegra 2 chipset, WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR. T-Mobile is holding a media event at CES 2011 this morning, so the Streak 7 could well make its official debut there. [via Engadget]
