Dell Streak arrives at T-Mobile on February 2nd for $199

We had the right date, but the rumored price was wrong. T-Mobile just tweeted that the Dell Streak 7 will go on sale this Wednesday, February 2nd for $199 with 2-year agreement (after a $50 mail in rebate).

The Dell Streak 7 is T-Mobile’s first 4G tablet and features Android 2.2, a 7-inch display, Tegra 2 processor, and dual-cameras. I like Dell computers, but I am not a fan of their Android devices yet.

If I was in the market for an Android tablet, I think I would wait until February 13th to find out what Samsung has been working on.

Bonus: The first reviews are starting to roll in. Head over to CrunchGear to read to John Biggs thinks of Dell’s tablet.

    I have to agree with you I would wait also till February 13th. But the burning question on my mind is… Who will be the first manufacturer to make a 7inch tablet that can make and recieve calls that would be 4g capable??? That would be the only way I would want a tablet that could replace my smartphone but can be used in the same manor… Who do you think will do this

      For me, I don’t want the tablet to replace my phone. It’s the perfect portable size already and it’s wifi should hotspot for the tablet. I really don’t want a tablet with another cell phone contract to pay for. I’d only be interested in wifi only tablets myself.

        I agree… there is no way I will ever get another ‘line’ for a tablet. I have a line, it should be hardware independent.

    Wow. Nice job, Dell. For the average customer, that’s a very “informative” commercial. Keep it up. >_>

    I’m sorroy to say but this is a flop. A mobile OS on a tablet? Just make a honeycomb tablet, or since their Dell why not make a tablet with a custom Windows 7. That would make more sense. Mobile….Tablet. Two different experiences. Smh

    I got to “hands-on” with a live unit at the local best buy. this thing is not pocket friendly but you could still carry it. in a pocket, it’ll just stick out a lot. the unit didn’t have a sim in it but the interface was very smooth. it’s natural orientation is landscape mode. build quality wise, it feels solid and was about the weight of a psp. didn’t have much of anything on it but the screen was gorgeous and has some kewl wallpapers. and standard far for widgets with a few ones in hadn’t seen before so assuming there custom for the unit.

    Boy I tell you!!!! These money hungry telecoms love that subscription revenue so much that they are willing to dump much money into trying to snag more customers with these tablets with a super low introductory price but with a 2 year subscription attached to it. It really doesn’t make much sense. Just provide the product for a flat price without the subscription component attached and let the people decide whether or not they want to add a 4G or 3G data plan to it. For the most part most users of these tablets just want the ability to use these via WiFi in their homes, offices, cafes, etc. Or if they are hellbent on signing people up for contracts give them more choices and price it appropriately, ie 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, etc. 2 year contracts are a pain, in the you know what, but some people will want that but not all will.

      I’m leaving a reply to my posting. LOL Actually you can purchase this product directly from Dell for $449.99. So let’s do the math with T-Mobile 2 year contract. $199 + ($39.99*24)$959.76=$1158.76. The $39.99 price is for a 5 GB Overage Free Plan and that price doesn’t include tax and fees which can run %20 percent of the subscription price. So in that case the true price would come out to about……. (959.76*.20) $191.95(Tax/Fees) + $959.76(Subscription Payout 24 months) + $199(product cost)=$1350.71 Total Payout. So there you have it, $449.99 or $1350.71.

        I find it very interesting how Motorola decided to offer the Motorola Xoom as an WiFi only device.
