Dell Streak 7

It may not be running Honeycomb, but the Dell Streak 7 is available for purchase right now. Get it from T-Mobile for $200 (after a $50 mail in rebate) on two-year contract or contract-free straight from Dell for $450. All that cash will net you Android 2.2 Froyo running on a Tegra 2 behind a 7-inch 800x480 screen. Choose wisely. [Dell, T-Mobile]

I can't say im not impressed with the specs for the price but I will not sign a contract for a tablet. I would be curious to see on in person because the screen seems kind of low resolution for that size.

I got my tab a month ago for $250 from tmo. I love it. May not be for everyone but it seems way better than this.

Too bad it's not a phone. I could get with having a phone with a 5 or 7 inch screen. But the resolution is low for a 7 inch screen and no, I'm not signing a contract for a tablet. WiFi only please? Thanks.

I am interested. I keep saying that they need to work on their reputation and provide more timely software updates but this definitely looks like a nice tablet.

I dunno, I think sometimes we get too bent out of shape over "behind the curve stuff." Yes, Streak 5 launching with Donut was *bad* -- but the delta between Froyo and Gingerbread isn't that big a deal on a tablet. And Tegra2 tablet for $200 turns out to be a pretty good deal...I laid one up next to a Galaxy Tab and honestly the difference between screen resolutions wasn't very obvious. So I decided to let Quadrant decide -- I got 1975 with the stock OS and no tweaks, which was good enough for me. I figure even before it gets Gingerbread or Honeycomb, someone will still come up with an EXT4 hack that will up the Quadrant score by another 30% without any overclocking. (FWIW, I get 6Mbps downstream pretty consistently -- not quite up to LTE speeds but much better than my "4G" Evo.)
