Dell Phasing Out Streak 7 From Product Line

Dell Inc. (NASDAQ:DELL) will no longer be selling the Streak 7 tablet device. The device is no longer available online. It has only been a few months since Dell phased out the Streak 5 as well.

“Dell remains committed to the mobility market and continues to sell products here and in other parts of the world,” said Dell in a statement. “Streak 7 delivered a unique experience for customers who wanted a larger screen-size yet the freedom of staying connected to their personal and professional content while on the-go. It continues to be available in many markets through retail, distributors and carrier partners such as Optus in Australia. A 10-inch version of the tablet, Streak 10 Pro, is currently offered in China, offering the ultimate digital divide between work and life. ”

Dell has not been successful when it came to selling tablets and part of the reason for that is by announcing devices well in a good amount of time before they made it available on the market. For example, they showed a prototype of the Streak 5 several weeks before the iPad the iPad was announced. Dell did not end up shipping the device until August 2010. The hardware and software was unchanged from what they showed.
