Dell Streak 7 gets priced & dated for UK launch

Dell has confirmed UK pricing and availability for the Dell Streak 7, the 7-inch Tegra 2 based Android tablet currently only available on T-Mobile USA. The Streak 7 will be priced from £299 (including VAT and delivery) when it goes on sale via Dell's online store at the end of April 2011.

Your money gets you an unlocked 3G radio, WiFi, a 1GHz dual-core processor and Android 2.2 Froyo with Dell's custom Stage UI software. Our main criticism of the Streak 7 is the display resolution; as Ben Bajarin found back when he reviewed the tablet in February, the WVGA panel falls short of the 1024 x 600 rivals like Samsung offer.

However, the lower-res display does enable Dell to bring the Streak 7 in at under the £300 mark, around £100 less than a Galaxy Tab 3G is currently going for (or what you'd pay for a WiFi-only Galaxy Tab).

    I think the problem is not so much the lower resolution as the distinct lack of Android 3.0, Honeycomb. For a 2011 Android tablet that is a much bigger issue. And far too big an issue to ignore. Buyers of this device need to be fully aware of what they’re getting in to. It took Dell an eternity to bring Android 2.2 to the original 5″ Dell Streak. Buyers of this one may face a long wait for Honeycomb.
