Dell Streak 7 Now Available

The Dell Streak 7 is T-Mobile’s first 4G capable tablet and as of today, it is now available for your purchase from T-Mobile.com as well as your local retail T-Mobile store. However, with this morning’s news of the T-Mobile G-Slate, it’s hard to recommend the Dell Streak 7 without mentioning the launch news of the T-Mobile G-Slate, arguably a significantly better tablet (on paper at least) on a number of levels.

That’s not to say the Dell is a “bad” tablet, however early reviews of the Dell Streak 7 did range across a broad spectrum from “liked it” to “loathed it.” None of this is meant to detract you though as the VERY NICE price point of $199.99 almost demands that you walk into a store and try out the Dell for yourself. If you like it, it’s not going to break the bank and if you aren’t a fan, the T-Mobile G-Slate may be right up your alley.

    I just like the fact that T-Mobile seemed to have stepped up their game big time with their offerings. With VZ getting the iphone and other device news in the air-waves, none has been distracting when it comes down to what T-Mobile is doing. And that’s a great step for our awesome network. I think it only gets better.

    Streak 7 is not a bad device; G-Slate is an awesome device. I think both will sell well because these two tablets [not forgetting the G-Tab], gives a wide variety for Magenta customers. It’s only a matter of what floats your boat :-)

      The Dell Streak 7 is decent overall…The screen leaves much to be desired though. I played with one yesterday. People forget that it’s powered by the Tegra 2!!!! I think it’ll be a hot seller b/c it’s cheaper than the Galaxy Tab & it’s 4G.

        It’s only $50 cheaper then the Galaxy Tab and I think people that walk into a T-Mobile store and look at the devices side by side will walk away the Tab.

          I’d rather have the quicker data speeds than the nicer screen. I am still not going to buy a tablet yet though. No point to them.

          You’d be surprised. I had a guy looking at the DS7 and the Tab…..I told him the pros and cons of each and he was leaning toward the DS7…..The DS7 is newer, it’s cheaper and its 4G….The average person won’t hone in on screen resolution like we do…..You are right though, side by side, the GT looks a heck of alot better

    I’ve actually had a chance to sit down and play with the tablet and it does a pretty job of well be a basic tablet. I handles android 2.2 like a dream. That being said, there are numerous things that i would’ve changed to make the tablet a “game changer” but still its a good tablet for someone new to the platform. But I personally would wait for another tablet, IF I WERE TO EVER BUY ONE.

      the Streak 7 is definitely nothing like the Streak 5, I can guarantee that. they did so much better with the Streak 7. Go go to the store and play with one for the heck of it. not that i’m trying to convince you or anything. just can’t base a company’s fate on just one bad device. the G-Slate however is definitely AWESOME.

        The did much better with the Streak 7? Really? Then explain the poor screen and terrible battery life. The Streak 7 is another FAIL!!

          Explain? Nothing to explain, bro. That’s just your opinion…I think otherwise. Battery is nothing new to any device that’s currently out there…depends on how u use it typically. Don’t have issue with screen.

          When i first found out the Streak 7 only had a 2700mAh battery, i knew that was gonna be a problem…The galaxy tab has a 4000mAh battery!!! The screen res on the DS7 is crappy….Turning the screen brightness all the way up on the DS7 makes a huge difference, but that means the battery will die even faster….what was Dell thinking?

    Nice. I’m going to wait for this:

    After checking out the news, screen shots and video from the Honeycomb press event I have to wonder how the Honeycomb UI is going to work on the Streak 7s 800×480 screen resolution. I really don’t see how it will work. But how’s this for a possibility. Rumor has it that the Android 2.4 will be the smartphone version of Honeycomb. I can totally see the Streak 7 getting this instead of 3.0. Yet another tablet with a smartphone OS.

    BTW, I went into my local T-Mobile store to check it out. Fellt good in the hand and I kind of like the overall design better then the Galaxy Tab. Damn shame about the screen.

    Ive just purchased one today abd it seem pretty impressive with the performance so far. It is flaweless when you try to
    perform a musti-task on the device.

    • rpage935

      I have one also. Mine seems to like landscape and has a hard time moving to portriat. How about yours?

      Do you worry about TMO coverage (or the lack of)?

      • Ghuayu

        no my friend remember every device had their advantage and disadvantage.so far I really liked the device except with the screen resolution. And as far try to move the screen to portrait, I think you could turn off the screen rotation by going to the setting. Also I’m not really worry about the coverage because I got a perfect reception over where I live, which in Michigan. One thing I have to tell you that t-mobile really aggressively try to build those tower over those spotty area, I know becuase I get all of those update about the cell tower that recently being builded. So give yourself an chances try to play around more about that device, maybe make youself to fall in love more to that device… Lol

        The only people who need to worry are people who are already sure that they dont have proper coverage… if you have good coverage it stays good coverage. I never have an issue.. because they have coverage…in my area. Thats pretty much how it goes with every provider. May be awesome one spot but horrible in another.

    Not dissing this device at all.. but PLEASE go online and read reviews on this device from gizmodo, engadget, etc before purchasing.
