Reviews for the Dell Streak 7"
Medium or well-done? Dell also wants a part of the tablet market with the 7 inch tablet. The Streak is based on the Android 2.2 operating system and is driven by a Tegra dual core processor clocked with 1 GHz. Is Dell's Streak just raw meat or well-done?

Better late than never, the Dell Streak 7 fixes most of the problems found in its predecessor, at a much reduced price. With a quick CPU, plenty of storage and a near enough up-to-date version of Android, it makes for a convenient hand-held connected device. But it’s a shame the screen is a bit low-rent and low-res – the battery life could be better too. Still, this is progress, but you have to wonder how many Streaks Dell would have sold had it done the job properly in the first place.

The touchscreen felt smooth and responsive, no doubt helped by the Tegra dual-core processor. One disappointment is the screen's relatively low resolution of 800x480 pixels which is noticeably less than the 1,024x600 resolution of the Galaxy Tab. We have our concerns about how apps designed for higher resolution Android tablets will run on the Streak 7, if at all. A 16GB SD card will be included which should be enough space for a lot of apps. A HDMI and charging dock will be sold separately which would be useful for giving presentations.

Now, if you want an Android Tablet and you’re still unsure, the smart thing to do is to wait a few weeks as there’s an Android Tablet tsunami about to hit the stores – the iPad 2 should come out soon as well. I hope that this review has helped you figure out what the Dell Streak 7 is about.

There is but one bright spot with the Streak 7, and that is performance: Equipped with the hype-fueled Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, the tablet absolutely rips at web page rendering, app loading, running Flash, and just about everything else. If we could actually make out the display, and the battery alert wasn’t constantly threatening to shut the thing down, it’d be totally awesome.

Internally, the Streak 7 makes waves where no other tablet has: it features the first Nvidia Tegra 2—a system-on-a-chip with the first mobile dual core CPU. While we expect to see the Tegra 2 in many tablets in the coming year, this is a big deal—and we ran speed benchmark tests on the Streak 7 to show you just how big a deal it is. More on this later in the review, but suffice to say: It's the fastest tablet we've tested. That said, with several Tegra 2 tablets on the way, the Streak 7's about to have plenty of speedy competition.

In its initial US incarnation, the Dell Streak 7 is a tablet to consider if cost is your paramount consideration. Had this model come out at the same time the original Streak shipped, excusing its faults would have been easier. But I expect better of a Dell product, frankly, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab provides a superior user experience for just $100 more over the pond. Additional options are just around the corner, too, so I'd advise shopping around before committing to this subsidized tablet for two years.

Having used the Tab for over a month and now after using the Streak for five days, the performance advantages of the Streak 7 give it the edge in my opinion. The Streak 7 will perform and in some cases outperform other tablets in the 7' inch range with its capabilities as a rich multimedia device largely thanks to NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 super chip. The battery life is my biggest complaint with the Streak 7 and in terms of battery life the Tab is a better option. I want to see how the Streak 7 performs when either Gingerbread or Honeycomb become available as an update. From things like multi-threaded support, more tablet centric OS and speed / performance gains all things that will add value to not only tablets in general but the Streak 7 as well.

NVIDIA GeForce ULP (Tegra 2): In Tegra 3 SoC integrated ultra low power GPU. Depending on the model clocked at 300 to 400 MHz.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.
