The successor to the tablet-phone Dell Streak 5, the Dell Streak number 7 is set to launch for T-Mobile USA in a couple of days confirming the rumored price of under $300. This HSPA device can be yours for just 199.99 US dollars on a 2year contract with T-Mobile USA or 450 bucks if you want to save yourself the monthly fees and get it no strings attached. Just as a comparison, the Galaxy Tab’s contract-free price is still around $600.
Information on specs seems to be certain on the dual-core Tegra2 1GHz CPU, front facing 1.3 megapixel camera, Android 2.2 (no Honeycomb or even Gingerbread yet) and fast HSPA connectivity. Sadly, there’s no word on a Euro-spec’d version.
With upcoming tablets such as the rumored iPad 2, the Blackberry PlayBook, the Motorola Xoom and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 just around the corner, the Streak 7 shouldn’t exactly feel safe, and may be Dell should seriously consider a version for the European market if they want to stand a chance against such dense competition.
