Dell Streak 7 Tablet Now Available in Canada for $399.99

May 16, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

After many delays, the Dell Streak 7 tablet is now officially available for purchase in Canada. The Streak 7 tablet was supposed to hit the stores on April 28th, but had to be delayed till the 12th of May. Fortunately, the release has happened. The device is priced at $399.99. The company has been fighting a lot of issues regarding software and this had also led to the postponing of the Streak 5 and Venue Pro earlier.

The release comes with a shock news to all those who waited to see an optimized Android Honeycomb in the device. As of now, the device sports only the Android 2.2 Froyo on board and it’s not the hot Honeycomb. To add to the woes, the company supposedly has no plans to upgrade the tablet’s software to Android 3.0 as they are quite busy preparing their 10-inch tablet.

The Dell Streak 7 tablet is equipped with a dual core 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor and packs 16GB of internal memory as well as a microSD card slot for memory expansion up to 32 GB.

The tablet showcases a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen capable of giving 262k colors and 480 x 800 pixels resolution. Wireless connectivity includes Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotspot capability, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP and EDR, and to top it all an inbuilt GRS with A-GPS support.

A 5-megapixel rear facing camera with autofocus and LED flash and the secondary 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera for video-conferencing adorn the device.

However, the Streak 7 comes not without any flaws. Sadly enough, the gadget does not support the GSM voice communication and the lack of the Honeycomb may affect the sales. Candadian fans of the Streak 7, you may head here to pick your tablet.

What do you think? Will the Streak 7 make a statement in Canada, or not?
