Earlier today, a tablet device from Dell earned its WiFi certification, and immediately after got tossed around the rumor mill for a bit.

Instead, Dell went with something safe: This is the Dell Streak 7.

Dell Streak PDMI connector opens new hook-up potential

Dell's choice of an apparently proprietary connector for its Streak was one of the notable frustrations in our review of the Android MID, but it turns out not everything about the port is non-standard.  Owners over at the Pocketables forum have been digging through the specifications and even doing pin-to-pin testing of the Streak's HDMI dock, and have discovered it pretty much matches the PDMI standard.  The discovery opens up the possibility of cheaper third-party USB cables than Dell's own $19.99 accessory, together with other potential hacks.
