Dell Streak 7 WiFi + 3G 16GB Review posted on
7 inch 3G Tablet
Overall, the Streak 7 is better than many cookie cutter Android tablets on the market, like the Cherrypal CherryPad ($188, 2 stars), but that's not saying much. It can't stand up to Samsung's Galaxy Tab, and none of these Android tablets comes close to the Apple iPad. Even the Streak 7's low price doesn't justify some of its most egregious shortcomings, such as poor image quality and a lousy video chat experience. Its speedy processor provides a fast interface experience, but is counterbalanced by 3G-like download and upload times. With the Motorola Xoom (with Honeycomb) and the Blackberry PlayBook looming, we'll have to wait to see if any tablet can catch the iPad. The promise of the Tegra 2 makes it seem possible, but right now, the Dell Streak 7 isn't the 'droid you're looking for.

For those, that need to have a 7-inch Android tablet right now, we'd suggest the $500 Galaxy Tab - the screen is noticeably better and it lasts twice as long on a charge. (Keep in mind, we're not positive that the Tab will be upgradable to Honeycomb, so you're taking a risk there). There's also the $250 Nook Color, which is really aimed at reading and light browsing, but can be rooted every which way if that's your thing. However, with the Motorola Xoom, LG G-Slate, Toshiba Tablet, and a handful of other slates on the horizon, what we'd really recommend, is hanging tight and waiting for the Honeycomb tablet era to begin.

The Dell Streak 7 polishes Android 2.2 to a tablet-worthy shine, and is the first to deliver 4G compatibility-but it's not enough to distract us from the incoming wave of Android 3.0 tablets.
