Dell Streak $299 on Contract, Worth $100 More Than iPhone 4 and Captivate?
Today Dell officially announced the price of its Streak tablet-phone, and it will run you $299 with a two-year AT&T contract and $549 unlocked. That’s $100 more than the iPhone 4 and Samsung Captivate, and in the latter case you’re paying about $100 for an extra inch of screen real estate. Of course, that’s not all the 5-inch Streak offers. It has a front-facing camera for video calls, just like the iPhone 4, and Dell will be selling a nice assortment of accessories, including an HDMI dock and vehicle dock. Still, $299 is pretty steep, which is probably why earlier today Dell posted a video reminding folks that its Android OS 1.6 device will be fully upgradeable to Froyo (although they showed the Streak running 2.1).
Would you pay $299 for this slate? How much is its bigger size worth to you–if anything? Check out the video below and sound off in our poll. And don’t forget to check out our full Streak review.
