If you live in Canada, have around $550 to spare and don’t have an idea how best to spend that amount of money, here it is. Dell have just launched the Streak tablet device in that part of the world though what was missing is the usual fan fare that accompanies such high profile launches. The tablet has been priced at $549.99 and will work only on the Rogers network right now.
However, Dell has not confirmed what version of Android the tablet will run right out of the box. While the Streak by default runs Android 1.6, the upgrade to Froyo is expected any time. In fact, Dell has launched the Streak in Japan sporting the latest Android 2.2 Froyo. It remains to be seen if the same is carried forward to Canada as well.
