Dell’s upcoming tablet is receiving some attention just in time for CES 2011, as more information has begun to surface from the FCC and from previews of a TV ad treatment for the device.
The FCC spent a month with the 7-inch Dell Android tablet and has since “given the go-ahead for its integrated 3G,” according to Engadget.com. Images from the FCC show that the tablet will have Bluetooth and WiFi radios, along with SD and SIM card slots and an inactive proximity sensor.
The commercial, which is currently in production and was also revealed on Engadget, confirmed that the device will be called the ‘Streak 7’ and revealed other details, such as the fact that it will feature the same Android skin as the 5-inch Streak (Stage UI) and that Dell will be using the new slogan, “You can tell [it’s] Dell.” Among the other gaming, social, and internet features of the device, the ad treatment also shows that the device will come equipped with the Blio reader.
In addition to running Google Android OS, Dell’s tablet, which has been rumored to come to T-Mobile upon its release, will be powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 2 processor and will sport front and rear cameras.
The influx of information surrounding the Dell Streak 7—which has gone by other names, including Looking Glass—points towards the company doing an official reveal of the device at this year’s CES. Dell will be joining Motorola, which will be presenting its Honeycomb tablet, in showcasing its Android device, and TabletPCReview will be on hand to check them out, so keep an eye out for more information.
