T-Mobile intros Dell Streak 7 tablet, vows to double network speed in 2011

Dubbed the carrier’s first 4G tablet, T-Mobile introduced the Dell Streak 7 on Thursday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Amidst the sea of Honeycomb tablets floating around the show floor at CES this year, Dell’s Streak 7 features the Android 2.2 Froyo OS alongside a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, a 7-inch WVGA Gorilla Glass display and HSPA+ 4G compatibility. T-Mobile also noted that the theoretical speed of 21Mbps that its network currently boasts will be doubled this year to theoretical limits of 42Mbps. It should be noted that realized speeds are typically nowhere near the peak theoretical speeds advertised by some carriers — BGR has seen realized speeds of up to 8Mbps on T-Mobile’s current HSPA+ network. The carrier added that it plans to launch at least 25 new HSPA+ 4G devices this year, the first of which will be the aforementioned Dell Streak 7. T-Mobile’s Dell Streak 7 will launch in the coming weeks at an unspecified price point. Hit the break for T-Mobile’s full press release. More →

T-Mobile to launch Motorola CLIQ 2, Dell Streak 7 on January 19th?

According to an unconfirmed report, T-Mobile will launch two new Android-powered devices in mid-January. Enthusiast blog TmoNews claims that a source has pegged January 19th as the tentative release date for both the Motorola CLIQ 2 and the Dell Streak 7. The CLIQ 2 was last rumored to feature Motorola’s MOTOBLUR UI atop Android 2.2, as well as a unique QWERTY keypad that has no gaps between the keys. The Dell Streak 7 will reportedly be a 7-inch tablet with dual-cameras and version 2.2 of the Android OS. Neither device has been confirmed to be launching next month by T-Mobile or its respective manufacturer, though both are expected to be announced next week at the Consumer Electronics Show.
