dell streak 7

Apple's recent dominance of the tablet broadband market could come under threat after one of its main rivals launched a second-generation device.

The multi-touchscreen Dell Streak 7 - which runs Google's Android 2.2 operating system - has gone on sale in the UK, with prices starting from £229.

Dell will hope the launch of the Streak 7 enables it to compete with Apple's iPad 2, which has been racking up millions of orders worldwide since launching last month.

The manufacturer has struggled to cope with the amount of orders placed, with initial demand for the iPad 2 exceeding supply in many regions.

As an alternative, consumers can now get their hands on a Wi-Fi-enabled Dell Streak 7, allowing them to access the internet at wireless broadband hotspots across the UK.

However, the Wi-Fi + 3G model remains in development, meaning customers will have to wait if they wish to purchase a tablet with mobile broadband capability.
