The Android-based Dell Streak 7 is the ultimate entertainment hub for those craving a rich multimedia and web experience. It features a brilliant 7-inch WVGA multi-touch display made of damage-resistant Gorilla Glass that’s ideal for Web browsing, streaming video, watching TV and movies, reading books and magazines, or playing games wherever you roam.
I have a phone, a camera, an e-reader, a GPS, a PDA, an MP3 player, a portable video player and a mini-laptop. I travel a lot. I’d hoped to combine all these items in a Streak and so have less to carry. It purports to be all those things. However, in the manner of a coat that claims to be ‘One size fits all’, in reality, it doesn’t fit anyone well. And this tablet does nothing well.
The video image quality is very, very good, in my opinion, (color rendition is especially rich and vibrant) and the sound quality is adequate, especially considering the size of the tablet and the size of the speakers (it sounds like a small table radio). The sound volume, in most cases, is adequate to fill a small room. I have not heard any distortion or breakup with the sound level set to maximum.
