Dell flashes Streak 10, launches Streak 7

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

Reducing security risks from open source software

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. ®
