But, if you're not a fan of contracts, then you can also get it unlocked and ready to roll for just $549.

There's been a few other Android-based launches the last few days, but hopefully you haven't forgotten about Dell's 5-inch mobile Internet device (MID). It's still coming. And while it didn't show up last week, like we hoped it would, Dell wants you to know it's still happening. Soon. So soon, in fact, that they've managed to begin preparation for a pre-sale period.

Connectivity includes WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR as standard, as well as USB 2.0 and an SD card reader, while 3G/WWAN is optional.  No word on pricing at this stage, but the Toshiba will debut in August 2010.  For more on the AC100, check out our first impressions over at SlashGear.
