by Reads (13,427)

It was only a few weeks ago that Best Buy was selling the Streak for $250 — which was $50 off of the standard subsidized price — but now, the retailer has decided to practically give away Dell’s tablet phone, and recently dropped the price down to $100 with a two-year contract with AT&T.

Dell Streak with Google Android OSThe Dell Streak is the company’s smartphone/tablet hybrid, which sports a 5-inch touchscreen and will soon be now available with Android OS 2.2 (Froyo).

At an unsubsidized price of $550, the Streak comes in black, white, or cherry red, with Best Buy’s new offer applying to both the black and white version of the device. However, the white version remains an in-store exclusive, whereas the black version can be purchased online.

About the Dell Streak
The Streak features a user interface designed by Dell that is layered on top of the Android OS 1.6, which runs on the Streak’s 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. In addition, the tablet phone comes with 512 MB of RAM and 16 GB of storage in the form of a microSD memory card, which can be swapped out for a 32 GB card if need be.

It also comes equipped with two cameras: a back-facing, 5-megapixel auto-focus camera and a self-facing camera for video conferencing.

The connectivity of the Streak goes beyond the voice and 3G service offered by AT&T, with other capabilities including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, and a GPS receiver.
