Dell's Streak 7 Android Tablet Revealed By T-Mobile

At CES, T-Mobile introduced the Streak 7 tablet from Dell, its first 4G device.

Details about Dell's Android-powered tablet have been seeping out across the internet for a while, but T-Mobile made it official. The Dell Streak 7 runs Android 2.2 (no Honeycomb???), and will have a 7-inch WVGA display protected by Gorilla Glass. Under the hood, it will have a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, as well as support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1.

Other specs include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and front- and rear-facing cameras for face-to-face video chats over 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi connections. It will run on T-Mobile's HSPA+ 4G network at 21Mbps (theoretical max) and should become available in the coming weeks.

"With its dual-core processor, 7-inch multi-touch screen and dual cameras, the new Dell Streak 7 tablet takes full advantage of the unrivaled power of T-Mobile’s 4G network," said John Thode, Vice President of Dell’s Mobility Product Group. "Once you have it in your hands, you won’t be able to put it down, and it will quickly become the ultimate device for the socially connected who want to do everything from watching great content, to chatting with friends, to taking high-resolution pictures and immediately sharing them with their friends and family."

During T-Mobile's press conference at CES, it spent much of the time discussing its plans to enhance its network. As of now, it covers 200 million POPs in 100 markets across the U.S. with HSPA+ at 21Mbps. During 2011, it plans to introduce 25 4G handsets. Approximately half will debut in the first two quarters of the year with HSPA+ 21Mbps in tow, while the other half will debut in the third and fourth quarters with HSPA+ at 42Mbps in tow.

T-Mobile plans to upgrade its HSPA+ network from 21Mbps to 42Mbps throughout 2011.

"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."
