Dell Streak 7

The Dell Streak 7 Android tablet launched earlier this year for $380. But just about four months later you can pick one up for just under $300. Dell dropped the price of the WiFi-only version of the tablet to $299.99.

The tablet has a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor, 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel display, and Google Android 2.2 operating system. The tablet is a step or two behind most of its peers which have higher resolution displays and more recent, tablet-friendly versions of Android, but it’s one of the cheapest devices available with an NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor.

There’s also an active hacking community that’s managed to get bring Android 3.2 Honeycomb software and other tweaks to the tablet. Dell may also offer an official software update soon.

On the other hand, the price cut may be an indication that Dell is getting ready to phase out the tablet. Partner T-Mobile has already stopped offering the 4G version of the Dell Streak 7, and Dell will soon brings its 10 inch tablet in the US.

  1. Best Buy has has the Acer Iconia Tegra 2 10″ tablet for 399$ with a 100$ gift voucher. There is no reason at all to buy Dell. 

  2. Yeah…  These tablets aren’t really for me, at any price really.  The screen is just too low rez.  800×480 is nice on let’s say a 4.3″ screen.  Blowing it up to 7″ does absolutely nothing but wish maybe you’d bought a Nook Color or something.  It completely and utterly destroys the point of having a tablet, and I say this because I’ve handled one for a number of days, then returned it.

  3. Dell is a great brand and has a dependable reputation in terms of computer technology. The price-off on this Android tablet will just count at one of the reasons why consumers should trust on Dell.

  4. NewEgg now has the Streak 7 for $269 with free shipping.  800×480 resolution works great with the smartphone apps in the Android Market.  And the WiFi version of Streak 7 does have a GPS chip for navigation without the need to have an Internet connection.
