Dell M02M receives WiFi certification, Streak 2 release imminent?


Whether it's the next-gen Dell Streak reportedly known as the Opus One, the 7" Streak that Vaja seems to know something about, or a completely different device altogether, something Streak-y is definitely going on.

A gadget belonging to Dell and described as both a mobile internet device and a smartphone that supports 802.11n WiFi has just been certified by the WiFi Alliance. Its model number is M02M, which may seem insignificant until you recall that our current Streak is also known as the M01M. Check the label under your battery if you don't believe it.

The certification doesn't reveal anything juicier than 802.11n (it's the WiFi Alliance, after all) and the model number, but we've speculated about crazier things with less info than that before.

Dell will be showing some new products at CES 2011 both publicly and privately, so we should find out more very soon. I'll be at the company's press conference on the 6th with my fingers crossed that the M02M is formally announced and not cloaked beneath an NDA and only shown behind closed doors.
