The aptly named Dell Streak line has come and gone within a relatively short span. The Dell Streak 7 page on the company’s website offers this simple statement: “Streak 7 is no longer available online, but you can browse our other mobile devices for similar products.” There’s been no other official press release from Dell, although Engadget did secure comments from the company that said: Dell remains committed to the mobility market and continues to sell products here and in other parts of the world. Streak 7 delivered a unique experience for customers who wanted a larger... Read more...
Ever wondered if the very gadgets that you purchased for your own personal use were also used at the highest level of the government? We have to confess to wondering just how high-tech the CIA's gadgets were compared to what's readily available on the open market, but it's things like this that make us realize we aren't so different, after all. Dell has announced their Dell Mobile Security for Android platform has been certified by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) for information assurance and use on defence networks. Naturally, the platform's based on Google's mobile OS, and it'll... Read more...
What do an American PC maker and a Chinese search engine have in common? They both want to take a piece of the mobile pie away from their competitors in China. Dell and Baidu are planning to work together to develop smartphones and tablets, presumably to break into the vast Chinese mobile market. We already know that Dell has been knocking on China’s door in the mobile space, and joining up with an established, dominant online Chinese entity such as Baidu makes sense and could help it snag some market share from the likes of Apple and Alibaba. Baidu, for its part, is clearly headed toward... Read more...
There comes a day in the life of every gadget where things just aren't as shiny as they once were. Specifications grow old. Designs fade. Lifestyles change. It's a sad day, but it's looming from the very day a gadget hits store shelves. That day of reckoning has come for Dell's Streak 5, a tablet/phone combo that had a ton of hype behind it at launch, and leaves now with a dedicated page from Dell. It's clear that the product meant a lot to the folks in Round Rock, Texas, and it's even clearer that the impact will live on in Dell's future mobile portfolio. "It's been a great ride," according to... Read more...
Dell has quietly pulled the Streak 5 tablet from its website and from any retail stores, as well. It's not a recall per se, but it's believed that Dell is making changes and improvements to the product, unrelated to the software (i.e., hardware). For a while, consumers could still find the item on Dell's site, but if they tried to order it, they would get the following error message: Sorry, but this item is no longer available for purchase online. Please contact your sales representative for details on how to order. The site has now been updated to simply say the Streak is "out of stock." Since... Read more...
It's a world full of tablets, and we're just living in it. Dell's Streak 10 Pro has seemingly got lost in the mix; with so many other Android 3.0 tablets stealing the limelight, it's being an elbowing match to get coverage these days. Now, Dell's ready to introduce their own 10" Honeycomb tablet, but it won't be coming to America first. Dell has confirmed that they "are indeed working on 10" tablet products," with one in particular aimed at "prosumers." They're also working on a Windows 7-based tablet for enterprise consumers, which is due out later in the year. Evidently the company seems some... Read more...
The first half of 2011 is shaping up to be all about tablets. Truly, the tablet mania that everyone was so adamant about last year is finally here. While dozens of tablets were announced and shown off at CES in January, most of them won't be arriving until later this month or the March time frame at the earliest. The main reason for the delay is because most manufacturers are stuck waiting for Google to release Android 3.0, or Honeycomb, the first version of Android to be configured specifically for use on tablets. Motorola has the honor of releasing the first Honeycomb device, the Xoom. Of the... Read more...

Dell's Streak 7 tablet is the highly anticipated big brother of Dell's 5-inch tablet, the Streak 5 that came out in September of 2010. The larger Streak 7 goes up against stiff competition with the likes of Samsung's Galaxy Tab though the Streak 7 is retailing slightly lower in the $449 price range without a contract and through T-Mobile on contract for a very competitive $199.99. Regardless, the Streak 7 offers some pluses over the Galaxy Tab, like its 5MP rear-facing camera, but also comes up short in other areas such as its lower resolution display, with an 800x480 native resolution versus the...

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,... Read more...

Dell's fairly recent entrant into the tablet market certainly made a splash when it hit the scene a few months ago, with the company's CEO and namesake randomly making cameo appearances with the device in hand, like one of his one personal private stock toys.  Of course, once we got our hot mitts on it for a proper man-handling, we became fairly attached to the device for all its strengths and weaknesses.  "Approved" we said, but we new there was more potential lying dormant inside.  You see, Dell just wasn't ready to arm the device with a more optimized version of the Android OS,...
