CES: Dell Streak 7 gets official launch

By and large, the original Dell Streak was well received, although not everyone like the size - falling somewhere between a smartphone and a fully-fledged tablet. That's not the case with the new Dell Streak 7.

7, as you might have guessed, stands for 7 inchees, putting it up against the likes of the Galaxy Tab and any number of other newly-launched tablets at this year's CES. To tempt you in, there's a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 16GB of internal memory, a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera for some video chat and a regular snapper for photos , along with a Gorilla Glass screen to keep your pride and joy protected, Wi-Fi, 3G and Bluetooth. Disappointingly, it's launching with Android 2.2 rather than the heavily-promoted Honeycomb at launch, but it will be upgraded in time by Dell. It hits the market in the coming weeks, no pricing details as yet.

Interestingly, Dell also teased a larger device, the Dell Streak 10, which as you've surely worked out, is the 10-inch equivalent. It's just a prototype device right now, but looks to be a scaled-up model of the Streak 7. Look out for that later in the year.

Finally, Dell also dropped in a new Android phone, although there's little new about it. The Dell Venue is the same Dell Venue that launched for Windows Phone 7, only this time it loses the slide-out keyboard, gaining Android 2.2 and still offering a 4.1-inch AMOLED display and a 1GHz processor. No date for that one, but we suspect it will land very soon.
