Dell Streak 7 gets T-Mobile and ATT clues
Dell's Streak 7 could be its first multi-carrier tablet in the US after a pair of official and unofficial slips. An FCC filing has shown the device under its M02M model number with a 3G modem that supports both AT&T and T-Mobile bands. It reveals relatively little besides the frequency support, but it does confirm the 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and an SD card slot.
The discovery by Engadget didn't mention the speed, but it's unknown if the device will use T-Mobile's HSPA+ if it supports AT&T as well; it should at least reach up to 7.2Mbps.
Separately, a group of photos obtained on Monday by CellphoneSignal have confirmed that the Streak 7 will be given at least T-Mobile branding when it's unveiled. The imagery also gives a better view of the front and back cameras.
The Streak 7 is widely expected to get at least an unveiling in January and could be at T-Mobile shops for at least February or March. Publicly, T-Mobile has promised HSPA+ tablets for 2011 but hasn't said which companies would be involved or when.
