Dell Streak 7 Meets Untimely Demise

by Shane McGlaun

Dell pulled the Streak 7 out of its hat at CES last week and the immediate thing that most of us wanted to know was at what point the computer maker decided to hamstring its tablet with the wrong OS. The Streak 7 runs Android 2.2 rather than Android 3.0 like most of the other new major brand tablets seen at CES.

The poor choice in OS for the tablet isn’t because the hardware can’t handle Honeycomb either. The Streak 7 has NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor inside and a lot more. The rig has the power – Dell just made a bad decision I guess.

If you like the Streak 7, or just want to see what the tablet looks like on the inside, the geeks at Tinhte.vn have taken one apart for posterity. The video teardown shows all the hardware inside and it’s hard to see where the price comes in with so few parts to gander at. Check out the video for all the action:

    Actually, I think the reason it’s running 2.2 instead of Honeycomb is because Dell wanted to release their tablet sooner. None of the Android 3 based tablets were able to announce release dates, because the OS isn’t ready yet. I played with the Motorola XOOM for instance, and it only had a video of Honeycomb running on it, not the actual OS.

    My bet is that the Streak will someday be upgradeable to Honeycomb, since it will be powerful enough to handle it. So maybe Dell isn’t that stupid if it means they can get their tablet in more hands, sooner.

    Honeycomb is clearly a major step forward for Android tablet devices, but it’s also clearly not ready for release.
