LAS VEGAS--Dell and T-Mobile joined the tablet fray at the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show with Streak 7 tablet, specifically designed for T-Mobile's 4G network. No pricing was revealed, but the companies said the device would be on the market "in the coming weeks."
The Streak 7, unveiled Jan. 6, features a 7-inch WVGA multi-touch screen fronted with ultra-tough Gorilla Glass, and runs Android 2.2 on a dual-core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor. It includes full support for Adobe Flash and front- and rear-facing cameras, and a series of pre-loaded applications such as T-Mobile TV and online-newsstand Zinio.
That front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera comes preloaded with the Qik video-chat application for video conferencing over T-Mobile's network or WiFi. The rear 5-megapixel camera allows both still-image and video recording.
In the enterprise space, Dell and T-Mobile will find themselves locked in competition with RIMÃ's PlayBook, also on display at CES. And all these tablet manufacturers face a sizable opponent in the form of Apple's iPad, the next version of which could be released within the next few months.
