Dell Streak 7 tablet gets torn down on video

By: Shane McGlaun | More News: Mobile Devices | Posted: Jan 11, 2011 4:10 pm

The Dell Streak 7 was one of the hoards of tablets that landed at CES 2011 last week. The tablet was a bit strange in that unlike all the other cool tablets that were unveiled running Android 3.0 honeycomb, the Streak 7 used the older OS version with Android 2.2 Froyo. No one is particularly sure why Dell did that considering the tablet has the dual-core Tegra muscle inside to run the new tablet focused version of Android.

I am sure geeks interested in the Streak 7 are hoping that the tablet gets an update soon. Other than the OS, we know the tablet has Tegra 2 inside and a 7-inch screen among other things. The little rig landed in the hands of the gang at Tinhte.vn and they decided to gut the tablet for us to peruse.

 

It's always cool to me to see what's inside the gadgets we own without actually having to take our gear apart. You can see the teardown video below and get your daily dose of gadget porn.

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Mobile Devices | Posted: Jan 11, 2011 1:14 am

Rumors are flying fast that Apple are prepping the iPad 2 for a late January, early February release. Of course Apple have not confirmed any of the rumors, but when have they ever done that?

 

TweakTown image news/1/8/18410_503.jpg

 

Founder of Digg, Kevin Rose, has stated that a source close to him is indicating a February 1st release. Other news on the iPad 2 is obviously the 'square' shape compared to the curvy design of the original (like the iPhone 3G/S to the iPhone 4). Also included in the rumor mill for the iPad 2 is a higher resolution display and dual cameras (front and back) for some FaceTime-action.

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Business, Financial & Legal | Posted: Jan 11, 2011 12:35 am

NVIDIA and Intel are now playing nice. I'm guessing this is because AMD is about to open up a can of whoop ass on them (all the pun in the world intended there, you may remember the tattoo, etc).

NVIDIA and Intel have announced a new six year cross-licensing deal that will have Intel coughing up $1.5 billion over five years to NVIDIA, to gain access to their technology, while NVIDIA gain access to some of Intel's patents.
