Dell Streak 7 gets aggressive pricing, imminent release

T-Mobile reveals its plans for its first HSPA+-capable Android tablet.

The Dell Streak 7 was one of the many tablets revealed at CES last month, but at the time, T-Mobile kept mum on pricing and availability details. Now, all is revealed -- and from a pure-play price perspective, T-Mobile has kept its promise to best the tablet competition with this model.

Today T-Mobile is announcing the Streak 7 will be available starting February 2, and it will cost $200 after a $50 mail-in rebate (with a two-year contract). Off-contract, and on T-Mobile's prepaid mobile broadband plans, the Streak 7 will sell for $450.

That mail-in rebate bumps the Streak 7 to a lower price than the T-Mobile variant of the Samsung Galaxy Tab. The Tab recently got a price reduction to $250, after a $50 mail-in rebate of its own.

The Streak 7 is one of several Nvidia Tegra 2-based Android tablets coming to market this winter. The pricing clearly makes this tablet an intriguing option, but keep in mind it's just the first of a coming flood of high-profile tablets (and many others that are less so). Over the next couple of months, we expect to see the first Android 3.0-based tablet, the Motorola Xoom (also introduced at CES), as well as the RIM Playbook; and, we expect more formal news of the second-generation Apple iPad.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
