Dell has officially announced the price for their Dell Streak 7 inch tablet, a competitor for the Blackberry Playbook, HTC Flyer and Samsung Galaxy Tab. They have opted for a fairly competitive £299 price tag which will have a fair few people considering their options when choosing a mid sized tablet.
The Streak 7 inch sits slap bang in-between the modern day standard 4 inch smartphone and 10 inch (or thereabouts) tablets. It is powered by Android 2.2 Froyo which is rumoured to be upgraded in the near future to the tablet based OS Honeycomb. The Streak 7 comes complete with two cameras; the rear facing snapper is capable of shooting HD video and packs 5MP. The front facing camera also packs a pretty decent 1.3 megapixel punch.
The 800×400 screen resolution is not as good as the Playbook which manages 1024×600 but we will have to reserve judgement until we actually get our hands on the device. Dell says the Streak 7 tablet PC is big enough to carry around but still large enough to gather around, it certainly looks the part from the pictures on the Dell website and comes complete with wi-fi, Bluetooth and 16GB of flash memory.
The great thing about Dell is that they include an SD slot which can boost the internal storage by an additional 32GB, however it’s powered by a 2780 mAh battery which initial tests show produced just over 4 hours of continuous use (around half the time of the Galaxy Tab). Again we will have to wait for further benchmarking before we can confirm or deny this statistic.
Extras for the Streak 7 are also competitively priced with the Car Charger Adapter Kit costing £25.00, Home Dock Solution costing £39 and Leather Case (with Rotating Adjustable Stand) costing £29.
So the Dell Streak is out in the UK for £299, are you tempted?
