Dell to discontinue sale of 7-inch Streak tablet in the U.S

Dell Streak 7 tablet, which was Dell's entrant in the tablet market, after the previously stalled Streak 5 tablet reached the end of its run in the U.S market, confirms a graphic on the company’s official site. Although, it has not been made clear as to what triggered this decision of the company, rumour mills have begun churning, nevertheless. According to a report in PC World, Dell has been spending sleepless nights over the raging success of the likes of the Kindle Fire and the iPad that have been selling so well in the U.S. The Fire, especially has been selling at the same price as Streak 7 after rebates.

With so much competition going on, the company found out that its 7-incher Streak 7 tablet wouldn’t be able to survive it, and hence decided to pull the plug off it. Now, on the official website, Dell plainly asks its users to “browse our other mobile devices for similar products.”

Here’s what the Streak 7 tablet had on offer:

  • 7-inch capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels
  • 3G, Wi-Fi support
  • Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP
  • GPS with A-GPS support
