WiFi-only Dell Streak 7 (M02M002) receives WiFi certification

Streak-7-wifi-only_wm

Well, now, what's this? A WiFi-only mobile internet device from Dell bearing the model number M02M002 that just received WiFi certification last week? The Wi-Fi Alliance doesn't lie, folks, and neither does this certificate I found while doing some product searches last night.

You might remember that Dell's M02M, which turned out to be the Streak 7, was outed last year by this very same group of people in charge of enforcing standards of interoperability. That certificate had the "dual-mode (WiFi and cellular)" designation listed as its category, while the M02M002 is clearly shown as belonging to the "single-mode (WiFi only)" group.

It's becoming more common for companies to release WiFi-only versions of their 3G/4G tablets, so although Dell has never mentioned such a variant of the Streak 7 before, it's hardly an unusual move. And now that we know it exists, the wait begins for news of its release date and price.

Update: It's available for preorder for $379 at Amazonir?t=&l=as2&o=1&a=B004QZASJ8 - for some reason we don't have an alt tag here. Thanks, MBA!

  • If this improves battery life it will reignite my interest in the Streak 7!

    Wifi only Dell Streak will be interesting, but I wish that it has better resolution and viewing angle. If I can’t find any good 7 or 8 inch tablet by July or August, I’ll go ahead and purchase the wifi version of Dell Streak 7.

  • Unless this has +5 hours of battery life it will collect dust just like the 3G version.

    Too little too late for me. I’m in the UK and got a friend to pick me up a Nook Colour last week. He’ll bring it in to work on Monday. $269 inc taxes.

    I will load Froyo and eventually Honeycomb on to that.

    I will then keep an eye out and see exactly what the Streak 10 has to offer.
