    Dell Streak 7 Android tablet discontinued


    Dell has discontinued the last Android tablet it offered, the Streak 7. That leaves Dell with no Android tablets in it its lineup and there are very few rumors about any successors.

    Like the Streak 5 before it, Dell has discontinued the Streak 7 tablet from its online store. The T-Mobile variant was similarly removed from the carrier's store earlier this year after being ignominiously denied a Honeycomb update, with a tiny moment back in the spotlight during T-Mobile's "Magenta Saturday sale."

    Dell's site simply says that "Steak 7 is no longer available online, but you can browse our other mobile devices for similar products." The company's mobile products selection is actually looking pretty thin these days, with the Inspiron Duo holding down tablet duties and the Venue and Venue Pro smartphones still available. That leaves a pretty large hole for an Android tablet to fill, but it remains to be seen whether the 10-inch Dell Streak Pro will ever make it to the US and it's been quite awhile since we've heard anything about the Silver Oak or Opus One.

    It's not entirely a surprise to see Dell moving away from Android tablets, however. CEO Michael Dell was quoted in October as saying "that market has not developed to the expectations they would have had," implying the company was more interested in Windows 8 tablets going forward.
