    Dell Streak 7 !!!, February 13, 2011
    A.W. (U.S.) –
    This review is from: Dell Streak 7 4G Android Tablet (T-Mobile) (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    I bought this tablet after playing with it in a T-mobile store..i also tried the Samsung Galaxy Tab too while i was there.This thing blows the Tab out the water as far as performance goes..but the Tab has better graphics due to it’s 1024 by 600 display.But for me it was no brainer to get the Streak.I was going to get the Motorola Xoom but it’s priced way too high & seeing as my Streak 7 pretty much has nearly the same specs as the Xoom i just can’t see wasting nearly $900 for the Xoom.
    The battery life on the Streak 7 is pretty much my only complaint.But i bought a car charger for it however.Other than that this thing is perfect.The screen responds incredibly well.Games like Asphalt 5 look amazing on it!!! The 4g speeds are incredible.I love being able to go anywhere & use this thing.I even got rid of my Archos 70 internet tablet after buying this item.Plus my brand new Ipod touch(4th gen) pretty much collects dust now lol.Apple won’t let you view flash based websites..The Streak 7 has no problem loading the full desktop version of Cnn & Espn websites.Plus this tablet will get Honeycomb 3.0 when it comes out thanks to the Tegra 2 dual core processor..There is no tablet that can compete with this one at the moment. :)

    its good…but, March 8, 2011
    This review is from: Dell Streak 7 4G Android Tablet (T-Mobile) (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    I have been waiting for a good 7 inch Android tablet for months. I own a Samsung Vibrant so I’m no stranger to dealing with Samsung’s poor support. Galaxy s tablet was a no go for me. I used the Dell streak battery 7 twice in a t-mobile store and compare it to the Xoom at a Verizon that was just across the street. What I found was…

    Pros: Dell Streak 7 (DS7) has a Tegra2 processor in it which future proofs it a bit

    Supports 4g if its available

    Runs very snappy once the launcher is changed. I recommend ADW or Launcher Pro

    Solid build and its “portable” where the Xoom and iPad really aren’t.

    Supports full sized ad cards

    16gbs of internal storage. 1.8gbs for apps, 11.4gbs for general storage

    Cons: the DS7 has a poor battery. It can be managed to get 7 or 8 hours with light use, but anything beyond light use and I literally watched the battery drain away over a few hours after a full charge.

    Proprietary usb/charging cable is a poor choice. Its far too short and it doesn’t allow for charging through usb from a computer. If I’m incorrect about charging from a computer then please tell me how. I never got it to work.

    The battery can’t be replaced

    The screen could be better. Most Android phones are at a 800×480 resolution but at a 7inch form factor the image quality isn’t always as good as it should be.The viewing angles aren’t the best either but weren’t as bad as some reviewers at other websites made it out to be. For instance, my dvd rips still looked pretty good overall but on the other hand, the NookColor has a better screen than the DS7 and its $200 less.

    With all of this in mind I’m a bit torn over whether I should keep the DS7 or
    return it. I customized it and it runs really well playing back dvd rips and it handled my music well after I installed a superior 3rd party app. Connection speeds were good over 4g when it was available and the price isn’t too bad. I guess, I would feel more confident if Dell would confirm a date for a Android 3.0 upgrade or even if the DS7 will receive the upgrade. My unit has even been stable after bombarding it with apps, content and data, really running it down going through apps.

    With all things considered the DS7 is good for anyone that is looking for a 7inch tablet that runs good but doesnt have to be the cutting edge. Its a tough sell though, now that the iPad is $399 making the bigger screen seem not so bad. If Dell could have just improved the battery I could more easily forgive the screen. I could tailor the DS7 to suit my needs but I may return it and wait for the G Slate instead.

    Love my new Tablet, February 11, 2011
    Damon Grimes (Chicago, IL) –
    This review is from: Dell Streak 7 4G Android Tablet (T-Mobile) (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    Bought this Tablet a week ago and I absolutely love it. The 4G is wicked fast and I love the portability of it.

    4G (technically, not 4G, but just as fast)
    7-inch screen is actually all you really need. The larger 10-inch tablets aren’t exactly portable. If I wanted that, I’d carry my laptop.
    Processing speed is fantastic.
    Battery Life is great. I use this all day at work, checking email, taking notes and it lasts until I get home. That’s better than most phones if you overuse them.
    FULL SIZE SD CARD!!!! Wonderful!!! Can view photos quickly directly from my SLR (jpg, not Raw yet that I know of)!!!

    Not a big fan of the Dell Interface. However, you can replace that in the market for free. Download the ADW launcher to customize it or any other home screen.
    Not set up to tether (make as a hot spot for others) yet. This can probably be done using a market app, but you may have to be rooted to do so.
    No HDMI out. Not that I’d use it, but it is on others
    No USB connectors. Would be kind of nice to simply attach a keyboard if I have a ton of notes to take. Bluetooth works fine though and the keyboard is pretty nice that comes stock on the Streak.
    Can’t remove the battery (at least that I know of).

    All in all, I’m extremely happy with my purchase. The Cons are just nit picked items to make it perfect. I have owned several Android phones so if you are new to Android, this may take you some time to get used to and find all the great apps. Android isn’t as intuitive as the iPad, but it is more customizable.
