The Streak 7 tablet has been stripped off the ‘coming soon’ tag at Dell’s own website. Instead, one can now place orders at the Dell site for the Streak 7 tablet though the price being mentioned – $399.99 is still $20 more than the $379.99 that Amazon is selling the same piece of hardware for. Dell is also behind Amazon as far as shipping date is concerned as the earliest the dual core 7 inch Wi-Fi tablet can be expected to start shipping is April 28. This when the same from Amazon has already started to reach buyers as they had begun accepting pre-orders last month itself.
