The Dell Streak 7 WiFi Tablet Reviewed

The first iPad was met with skepticism; people thought that their laptops covered the same bases more than adequately. Then people rapidly began to recognize the true function of the iPad. It wasn’t long before all the main suppliers of mobiles and computers wanted in on on the fast-growing action. Tablets started popping up all over the place. And Dell’s shareholders were going to be upset if they didn’t try and corner a piece of the market. The Dell Streak 7 Wi-Fi Tablet is the result of that concern. In this article, we will have a look at this Dell Tablet and see if it is something you should buy.

It’s simpler to recommend a device when the company that makes it has a good reputation (like Verizon Cell Phones) – that, however, is not the case with Dell. Dell isn’t known for the quality of the products it makes. The company likewise has a dubious track record of providing customer service. Based on customer feedback, it appears that as soon as your warranty runs out, you are going to get a bill for calling customer support. You’ll find that perhaps the upfront cost of this tablet is cheaper than most, you have got to factor in the longer-term cost of the company you’re dealing with.

Multitasking is facilitate by the tablet’s operating system, a version of the Android OS dubbed “Froyo.” You should be able to listen to Mp3s, keep your GPS data current, and be notified of various things through the system’s notification service without being forced to keep any specific application open and running. Friends and business contacts will always be able to reach you on your tablet because it lets you access your email accounts, including Gmail, quite easily.

Video chat was not included with the initial iPad offering, and it’s great that it is with this tablet. This Dell tablet, using Qik software and a front-facing panel camera, provides video chat. The hassle is , though, that you won’t be able to communicate with those others who don’t own the same Dell tablet, or something compatible. Thus, video chatting with those who are using other platforms is not ensured. The integrated On Demand service furnished by Blockbuster is a positive for this Dell tablet. You may have known that Blockbuster is going through its own share of difficulties of late so we aren’t very certain if this is really a selling point.

Reviews right now are few, but it does appear that most people are unbelieving as to the reasons why this tablet was created. It isn’t an encompassing gadget – it doesn’t have the capability to communicate between non Streak-compatible devices so its functionality is very limited. Notwithstanding, a keen desire for a tablet computer coupled with a limited budget may make this an ideal way to acquaint yourself with the technology. Just make sure you understand what you are buying before you actually send your money to the company.
