T-Mobile Getting Dell's Streak 7 Tablet For $199 On Contract

And the Streak gets larger. Dell's original Streak was just 5" in size, which was quite small for a "tablet." But then again, it was one of only a few tablets that could double as a smartphone. Most 7" tablets have their cellular capabilities disabled, but that size has proven to be pretty popular. Just look at the Galaxy Tab, for example. Now, Dell will be competing directly against Samsung and the other tablet makers who are pumping out 7" slates just as fast as they can.

Dell's Streak 7 is the same Streak you know, but with a 7" screen that is more conducive to watching multi-media. And now, that Streak 7 will be coming to T-Mobile. The Android 2.2 (Froyo)-based tablet will be sold on T-Mob for $199.99 with a 2-year contract, with sales to begin on Wednesday. If you have forgotten, the Streak 7 is powered by NVIDIA's Tegra 2, and it will support T-Mobile's HSPA+ network. If you aren't much on a contract, the slate will be on sale for $450 free-and-clear, making it somewhat cheaper than the Galaxy Tab off-contract.

Does anyone on here use T-Mobile? I am kind of curious about them. Currently I am a contract less month to month Verizon user, and I want a smart phone (I had one with one provider, but ended up taking it back). The take back was done because of coverage at my home. I could jump in now, but there is just to much coming for my tastes. So it comes down to price to service, and capabilities for me. I know I can get service with Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint (which supposedly has expanded coverage here since my last try), Metro PCS (LTE 4g here now), and of course At&t. Sprint, T-Mobile, and of course Metro PCS seem to be the best price wise for what you get. But I have never used T-Mobile, and don't actually know anyone who has.

We have a Galaxy Tab with T-mobile, no complaints thus far. Of course it doesn't get as much use as a Cell phone would, so I can't say for sure exactly how good it would be... they have pretty decent prices tho.

I would like to check out this 7" Dell Streak tho... But they need to hurry up and get Netflix support on Android.

T-mobile was garbage when I had it several years back. We constantly had dropped calls. I can't say that a phone will be the game changer for me.

I can see this tablet working for someone who uses bluetooth for the calling. What throws me off is the size. Where do you plan to put this?

I know the Galaxy fits in a jacket pocket - this looks to be about the same size. I actually kind of like the size of this tablet. It's still small enough to hold in one hand.

I'm still not sure if I'm ready to part with that kind of cash for one of these when the hardware still seems to be improving at a fast pace, though.

KRaymond:

I'm guessing no. MetroPCS uses CDMA while T-Mobile uses GSM; it'd be very unlikely you can use that device on MetroPCS' network.
