Dell Streak 7 delayed in Canada

Dell’s fist 7-inch Android tablet, the Streak 7, may be slowly becoming available worldwide, but unfortunately Canadians still have to wait to get their hands on this device.

Last month we told you that Dell Canada had started taking orders for the tablet, and it was expecting to start shipping Streak 7s on April 29. Well, guess what? That didn’t happen. People who had ordered the Dell Streak 7 in Canada did not receive the devices in April. In fact, they still haven’t received them.

Right now, Dell says that it will start shipping the tablets on May 13. That’s two days from now, so we’ll see quite soon whether there will be any further delays or not. Let’s hope not. For, even if they may not be many, the Canadians who want a Dell Streak 7 shouldn’t have to keep waiting.

The price has remained the same, $399.99. This amount of dough will get you the Wi-Fi-only version of the Streak 7, which is what we’re talking about here. Said tablet has a 7-inch 800×480 capacitive touchscreen with Gorilla Glass, a 1 GHz dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, a 5 MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash, a 1.3 MP front-facing camera, 16 GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card slot), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a 2780 mAh battery. The Dell Streak 7 runs Android 2.2 Froyo with Dell’s Stage UI on top – which makes the Streak 7 a rather odd offering, in what is quickly becoming a world of Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets. Even so, if you’d like a Streak 7, you can of course still order one from Dell Canada, if you go here.
