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.
