Unlike the smaller earlier Streak, the Streak 7 does not include a conventional voice phone capability. That isn’t a negative for a tablet in my opinion. A big positive is support for T-Mobile’s 4G wireless data network. Unfortunately, T-Mobile’s 4G network is, like its 3G network, probably among the smallest of the wireless data networks in the U.S. Its biggest attraction is its price: $200 with a two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate. Even its unsubsidized price is reasonably low at $450. Unfortunately, it use the relatively old Android OS 2.2 instead of the designed-for-tablets 3.0 that will be in the Motorola Xoom that may appear in just a few weeks.
