CES 2011: Dell Streak 7 Hands On (Video)

We’re live at the T-Mobile demo event, and we’ve just spent a few minutes with the just announced Dell Streak 7 seven-inch tablet.

The most immediate thing you notice is the heft of the device.  It doesn’t exactly feel “sturdy” in the hand so much as like something you could potentially injure someone with if you hit them in the head with it.  Yet, you oddly like holding it.  It was a very odd experience.

The one unfortunate thing I noticed was when I tried to put back in the dock in landscape mode I had a heck of a time getting the connector to line up with the hole.  Admittedly the room is somewhat darkened room, but you would think reconnection should be a tad simpler.

The new device is running Android 2.2 (like everything else on the planet seems to be right now), powered by a dual core 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor which seems to be the process du jour this weekend in Las Vegas.  It has a rear facing 5 megapixel camera as well as a 1.3 megapixel version on the front for video conferencing.  It’s got 16GBs of built-in memory expandable by an SD card slot, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi video calls powered by Qik (err … Skype, technically) over T-Mobile’s network.

The Dell Streak 7 will be available over the coming weeks, but no word on pricing as of yet.
