Dell flashes Streak 10, launches Streak 7

By-the-numbers tablet lifted from herd by 4G connectivity

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

CES 2011 Dell has extended its Streak family of Android tablets by two inches with the announcement of a 7in model and by five inches with the admission that a 10in version is "coming soon".

Dell briefly flashed the 10.1in Streak at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), but put the Streak 7 centre stage, touting the tablet's Corning Gorilla Glass-covered face, its Nvidia Tegra dual-core 1GHz processor, 1.3Mp webcam, 5Mp stills cam, GPS, 32GB of Flash storage, and its 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.

But there's more: the 7 will contain a 4G modem and - in the US at least - be sold ready to connect to T-Mobile's LTE network. Over in the UK, LTE is but a glint in network operators' eyes, so it's almost certain the Streak 7 will come with HDSPA 3G support there.

Streak 7, like Streak 5, will run Android 2.2, so Dell's clearly unwilling to wait for Android 3 Honeycomb. The 7's display resolution is just 800 x 480.

Dell didn't provide any Streak 10 specs, though it'll clearly be a scaled up 7 running Android. ®
