Have your eye on that shiny new Dell Streak 5 inch tablet with Google Android, but worried it’s going to cost too much? Well, it looks like you can pick one up for free in the UK from Carphone Warehouse… sort of.

The wireless retailer will give you a free Dell Streak if you sign up for a monthly data plan with 02. You’ll either need to shell out £25 per month for a data only plan or £35 per month for a voide and data contract. If you don’t pony up, you can still buy the Streak, but it’ll cost you £429.

Those numbers come to about $36 US for the monthly data plan, $51/month for unlimited voice and data, and $622 for the unsubsidized tablet. If you were planning on using the Streak with a data plan anyway, it seems like the smart thing to do is sign yourself up for a contract.

The Dell Streak is expected to go on sale on June 4th in the UK. The 5 inch tablet has a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, WiFi, Bluetooth, and 3G connectivity. It will ship with Google Android 1.6, but an update should be available later this year allowing you to upgrade to Android 2.2 Froyo.
