We now know just how amazing the ‘fun, fast and amazingly priced’ Dell Streak 7 tablet PC really is. T-Mobile has been proudly displaying what they take pride in calling their first 4G enabled tablet along with the other above mentioned credentials. Surprisingly, the pricing structure too was there in the site itself though the reason the majority of the people missed out on that is because they it was there at the bottom of the page and in fine print. And thanks to the inadvertent leak, something that since long has been effectively plugged, we now have an inkling of what the tablet will cost.
Its a down payment of $82.50 that will be required right away following by three equal monthly installments of another $82.50. So some simple maths later, we know the tablet is likely to cost about $329.99 if you intend to make the payment in full which is also inclusive of a 2 year contract.
As for the ‘fun and fast’ aspects of the Streak 7, we know the tablet is quite capable with its NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor on the inside and a 7 inch WVGA touch screen with Gorilla Glass for added strength. Running the show will be Android 2.2 Froyo for now though the Honeycomb update would be made available once its launched. The new 7 inch tablet will also boasts of Dell’s Stage UI.
The tablet will be compliant with T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network with speeds of up to 22 mbps. The Streak 7 will also include WiFi, Bluetooth, a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera and 5 megapixel camera at the rear. On board storage will amount to 16 GB with SD card slot available that will support memory cards of 32 GB capacity.
T-Mobile will also have on offer live and on-demand TV content for the tablet.
