FCC approval documents for what is believed to be the Dell Looking Glass have been revealed Monday, shedding new light on the unannounced tablet. The upcoming tablet codenamed Looking Glass received its Wi-Fi Alliance certification last last week, and now an FCC approval brings additional information ahead of Dell’s imminent announcement. Notable specs include 3G compatibility with both AT&T and T-Mobile’s networks, SD card support, Wi-Fi 802.11n and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR. Rumors also suggest that the tablet will feature Google’s Android OS, a 7-inch touchscreen display and a Tegra 2 processor. The Looking Glass may be revealed next week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, likely with “Streak” branding to line up with Dell’s first tablet device.
The sequel to Dell’s supersized smartphone may have just skated through the Wi-Fi certification process. An unannounced Dell device recently received its credentials from the Wi-Fi Alliance, the body that ensures Wi-Fi-equipped devices meet the Wi-Fi spec. The device bears the model number M02M, which just so happens to be one digit north of the Streak’s model number M01M. For the time being, all we know about this potential Dell Streak 2 is that is includes support for Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n — the current Streak only supports Wi-Fi b and g. The rest is a mystery for the time being, though new info will undoubtedly begin to trickle out soon if a CES announcement is in the cards. The report also points out that this device could be the larger slate Dell is rumored to be prepping, the 7-inch Dell Looking Glass. The designation on the Wi-Fi certification is “smartphone,” however, so a Streak sequel is probably a more likely candidate.
