Gigaom - T-Mobile is about to offer the Dell Streak 7, the first Android tablet that can take full advantage of the carrier’s 21 Mbps HSPA+ data network. The Streak 7 arrives in stores this Wednesday, Feb. 2, for $199 after a $50 mail-in rebate and with a two-year data contract or $450 sans contract. The speedy network access is a plus, but the Streak 7 is lacking in many other areas as compared the Samsung Galaxy Tab, which T-Mobile currently sells for $50 more.
AppSplit: "If you own a Dell Streak 5 and waiting anxiously for a Gingerbread update then you are in luck today, as Dell has officially released the Gingerbread update for the Dell Streak 5. You can simply download the update file [155 MB] that is available on Dell’s website"
Pocket-Lint: The Dell Streak 7 has finally reached the UK, having been available in the USA since the beginning of February on T-Mobile USA.
The Dell Streak 7, is the bigger brother of the Dell Streak 5 and will cost £299 without contract – incidentally the same price as the Samsung Galaxy Tab after a bevy of price drops in recent months.
Walter Mossberg of WSJ and All Things Digital writes: "If you could get a tablet for the price of a smart phone, and if it also worked on one of the new, faster, 4G-class cellular networks, you’d jump at the chance, right? Dell and T-Mobile hope so, and that’s why they’ve brought out the Dell Streak 7, at just $200 with a two-year service contract."
