The 5-inch Dell Streak—a large phone or a small tablet, depending how you see the world—goes on sale tomorrow in Europe and has gotten a more firm release date here in the US. What was once “summer” is now “July” and the device will sell directly from Dell for $500.
It’s important to note that in the UK, the Streak can be had for free with a two-year mobile data contract or data/voice contract provided by O2 and sold through The Carphone Warehouse.
It’ll be interesting to see how much the Streak will cost here in the US if it’s sold at a subsidized price through one or more of the wireless carriers. While $500 seems like a lot to pay for a 5-inch Android tablet, a free one with a two-year contract that you’d use as your primary phone seems like a downright steal provided you don’t mind looking like you’re talking into a day planner.
