Dell Streak 7 Tablet Discounted At £99.97

Dell has already announced that it is exiting the Android tablet market, and it has quietly started to clear out the remaining stocks of the Streak 7.

The device - which is the bigger brother of the Streak 5 - can be purchased from Currys for as little as £99.97 but is only available to collect instore with no home delivery.

It features a dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor clocked at 1GHz with 512MB RAM, Android 2.2 Froyo, 16GB onboard storage with a microSD card slot, a five megapixel rear camera with AF and flash, a 1.3-megapixel camera, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a proprietary dock with USB output.

One of the reasons why the Streak 7 hasn't done so well is because it sticks to the old resolution of the Streak 5, WVGA, rather than a much higher one like on the Samsung Galaxy Tab (1024x600 pixels). Furthermore, unlike the Streak 5, the Streak 7 doesn't have 3G voice calling capabilities and its battery life (at only three hours for video playback) is well below the competition.

Not surprisingly, there are not many tablets with a dual core processor at this price. The Archos Arnova 7 G2 comes with the same screen size and resolution but has a Cortex A8 processor, half the RAM and the storage.
