Review: Dell Streak 7 Tablet Computer

PCWorld: Review – Dell Streak 7 Tablet Computer

PC World reviewer Melissa J. Perenson liked the overall design of the Streak 7 and the price (only $200), but says the screen is woefully lacking and the interface is buggy and not very user friendly.

“The Dell Streak 7 is a study in contrasts. This Nvidia Tegra 2-based Android tablet counts smart and subtly sharp design among its strengths–unfortunately, its unimpressive display and inelegant software implementation constrain its appeal. T-Mobile’s aggressive pricing–at $200 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a two-year contract (as of February 1, 2011), it’s $100 less than the Samsung Galaxy Tab on the same carrier–may make the Streak 7 worth consideration, but the device’s numerous weaknesses might not outweigh the value price.

The Streak 7 is the follow-up to Dell’s 5-inch Streak, introduced last summer. That model suffered from a size that was too compact for a tablet but too large for the phone it really was. Still, that first iteration made me itch for a variant with a larger screen and more polish. The Streak 7 delivers on the first of those two items, at least.”
